New Delhi, July 6, 2017: India is looking about for the acknowledgement of Ayurveda in Singapore as a traditional medicine and has been in talks with Singapore for the protection, propagation and certification of Ayurveda as a traditional medicine.

On June 21, Singapore hosted the second International Conference on Ayurveda. “People look at the rising costs of medical treatments, the side effects of chemicals, of dealing with the lifestyle diseases which are growing both in developed, undeveloped countries, people are turning to traditional medicines, whether it is Chinese or Indian and Ayurveda is suddenly becoming very popular,” said Jawed Ashraf, India’s High Commissioner to Singapore.

Ayurveda, the traditional Hindu system of medicine, is completely naturalistic and comprehensive in nature. Jawed Ashraf talks about the global growth of Ayurveda by stating that the parts of Latin America, Asia and Africa have accepted Ayurveda as any other healthcare systems. By mentioning the memorandums of understanding with Russia, China, Hungary and Poland, MOU’s for research with universities in USA, Germany and France, he expressed his hope to get the same recognition in Singapore as well.
