uPNR – The Occasional Lecture Series
Ayurveda Philosophy in Health Care
Ayurveda, the indigenous medical system of India, dates back 5000 years in its codified form where ‘Health’ comprises mind, body, spirit, and social well being. Treatments are designed to retain this balance with no secondary complications where the role of physician, caretaker (nurse), and therapies are equally important. Ayurvedic philosophy of health care incorporates wisdom of medicine combined with compassionate care for the patient.
Rakhi Chandra, former Research Officer at the Centre of Excellence for Ayurvedic Research, India, will share how the philosophy and principles of Ayurveda complement the holistic care.
Come join the presentation and discussion. We look forward to seeing you there!
