Panchakarma Courses and Gruha Ayurveda

Gruha ayurveda There is a major dearth of quality continuing education programs for practicing Ayurveda physicians that are short to medium term in duration and helps build skills in specialised therapeutic areas such as Panchakarma, Ksharakarma, etc. On the other hand, the community at large, and women in particular, is eager to assimilate the principles and practices of Ayurveda in their daily life so as to prevent disease and to sustain the highest levels of well-being.

In a major initiative aimed at furthering these ideals, AyurVAID has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the University School of Continuing Education in Ayurveda (USCE), Gujarat Ayurved University (GAU), Jamnagar, the most prestigious and respected Ayurveda university in the world to make accessible to Ayurveda professionals two impactful Certificate Courses in Panchakarma.
