Ayurveda Throughout the World

There are over 100 colleges offering Ayurvedic medical degrees in India, monitored by the Central Council of Indian Medicine.2

The European Herbal & Traditional Medicine Practitioners Association (EHTPA) is the umbrella organization for all the main professional associations for Ayurveda and other traditional medicines (e.g., traditional Chinese (TCM) and Tibetan medicines).

In the United States, The National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA) and the California Association of Ayurvedic Medicine (CAAM) are two of the professional associations for Ayurveda practitioners in America. The U.S. has no national standard for training or certifying Ayurvedic practitioners, although a few states have approved Ayurvedic schools as educational institutions.2

According to the 2007 National Health Interview Survey, more than 200,000 U.S. adults had used Ayurvedic medicine in 2006 alone. The first ever International Congress on Ayurveda was held in Milan, Italy in 2009.10
