UK Government to Recognize Ayurveda Medicine

According to a government press release Wednesday, the Indian Systems of Medicine and Homeopathy (ISM and H) has successfully influenced the UK government to accept the scientific base of Ayurveda Medicine and recognize ayurveda BAMS (the Bachelor degree in the field) course and allow institutionally qualified physicians to practice in the UK.

The UK government's Department of Health set up an Herbal Medicines Regulatory Working Group (HMRWG) to work out the details of curricula and a possible frame work to regulate drugs and practice in herbal medicines including ayurveda. The curriculum for BAMS course and Indian Medicine Central Council (IMCC) Act 1970 which regulates education and practice in ayurveda has been sent to British authorities to assist in developing the UK curriculum and regulatory frame work.
