Petition Fund Ayurveda treatment on the NHS as a complementary and alternative medicine

Ayurveda has a long tradition behind it, having originated in India 5,000 years ago. Today it remains a popular part of health care in large parts of the Eastern world, especially in India, where a large proportion of the population use this system.

More details

Ayurveda, an alternative medicine system, derived from the Sanskrit words ayur (life) and veda (science or knowledge). Thus, Ayurveda translates to ‘knowledge of life’.

The ancient Indian Ayurveda Medical treatment is presently not available through NHS. We believe this treatment could help improve some patient's quality of life, and has many treatment options available. We believe this treatment should be fully funded through NHS. Currently patients must self-fund, but we want the treatment to be available to all, not just to those who can afford it.
