Congratulating CIF, CAPA & VSHF for this great initiative of connecting the best Indian ayurvedic doctors with the audiences in the West, India’s Consul General in Toronto, Apoorva Srivastava, said, “This Ayurvedic system of medicine is over 5000 years old and today it is more relevant than ever before as we are navigating through the pandemic phase like COVID-19. I hope this series of lectures will generate more awareness among the people regarding the great system of Ayurveda and make it more acceptable to people here.”

The CIF-CAPA-VSHF sponsored Ayurveda Speakers Series has already aroused curiosity and interest among the diaspora as well as concerned health professionals in Canada.

“Propagating the benefits of yoga and Ayurveda has always been one of our core goals. Recently, yoga has caught the eye of the world like never before, we need a similar push to allow Ayurveda to take its rightful place among the alternate medicine systems,” said CIF Chair Satish Thakkar, and added,

Coming in the midst of the world history’s most critical time, as countries and communities struggle to overcome the Covid19 pandemic, shutting down economies and struggling with healthcare budgets, “Ayurveda is about wellness and adopts a holistic approach to the human health. We need the wisdom of Ayurveda to make preventive healthcare right and center of our healthcare system. We hope this initiative will prepare the grounds for the eventual acceptance of Ayurveda as a regulated profession in Canada.”
