That this House celebrates the 3rd Ayurveda Day, on 12 November 2018, espoused by the Government of India in 2016; recognises that health means wholeness and that to promote health in the individual and in society a holistic approach is needed, and at the heart of which is a comprehensive health education programme to bring the individual more in harmony with nature's intelligence and natural law; acknowledges that Ayurveda is a timeless and time-tested tradition of holistic, natural and multi-dimensional approaches to health, and addresses well­being through comprehensive dietary and lifestyle management strategies that are specific to an individual's unique physical and psychological constitution in all stages of one's life; further acknowledges that Ayurveda's ethos and value to humanity is recognised by and aligned with the ethos of the World Health Organization as preventative and curative for many health conditions; agrees with the Secretary of State for Health that the 10 to one imbalance between what is spent on treating disease and what is spent on preventing does not accord and urges the integration of Ayurveda into the NHS to redress this imbalance with a cost-effective solution; and calls on the Government to introduce an Ayurveda Chair in all medical schools so that the future generation of medical students gain a thorough grounding in this ancient science of healthcare.
