2018 Seminars in Ayurveda Topics and Presenters

January 22, 2018
Evidence-based Ayurveda
with Dr. Dinesh Gyawali, BAMS

Evidence-based medicine encourages the use of scientific evidence with clinical expertise while making healthcare decisions. Ayurveda, for a long time, has been criticized not to have scientific proof, in fact, Ayurveda has always entertained the idea of evidence in the name of “Pramana Vigyan.” Ayurveda adopted a scientific method to search for truth which is evident from an elaboration of Pramana. In this talk, we will learn how evidence-based practice of Ayurveda is essential more than ever and how we can move towards it.

Dr. Dinesh Gyawali, BAMS Ph.D is a classically trained Vaidya (Ayurvedic Physician) [NAMA Ayurvedic Doctor] and a research scientist from Nepal. His Ph.D. research is highly acclaimed for being a milestone in establishing Ayurveda as Evidence-Based Medicine. As an Ayurvedic doctor, he has consulted thousands of people in Nepal, India, Australia and the US for the last 17 years. He is widely published and featured in media outlets. He is an Assistant Professor at the Maharishi University of Management where he trains Ayurveda Wellness Consultants.
