Home Care Ayurveda- Germany

In India, Kerala is known as the home to Ayurveda. But, today we can no longer restrict Ayurveda to this wedge-shaped state of Kerala. Globally, Germany is known to many as the home to Ayurveda. Dr. Jeevan’s Ayurveda academy in Germany is the reason for this status. Now, Germany is also known as the second home of Ayurveda. This crown that Germany wears today did not come easy. A lot of effort and homework has gone behind this and effort needs to be done continuously to keep it going this way. Despite the high number of academies, research programs and private clinics in Germany it can be seen that many institutions and individuals in Germany practice Yoga therapy along with Ayurveda.  Yoga here is often reimbursed if practiced under a qualified Yoga instructor who is registered under BDY(Berufsverband der Yogalehrenden in Deutschland e.V).  It can be presumed that in future Ayurveda may also be reimbursed if one undergoes treatment under a registered medical doctor too. And when that happens, Germany also becomes the first home of Ayurveda.
