Ayurveda, the knowledge of life and longevity, is perhaps the oldest existing body of knowledge on the healing process. It is not just a medical knowledge system, but a way of life which deals with the body, mind, the human spirit and consciousness. 

Today as the world finds itself facing many health challenges and the World Health Organisation finds itself severally challenged on many areas of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) with regards to global health care, it becomes more apparent that CAM (complementary and alternative medicine) systems have vital role to play in improving global health care as also in reducing the cost of global health care. Among the CAM systems, Ayurveda is at the forefront due to a very strong foundational basis wherein the entire focus is “on all-round well being always” rather than on “disease cure” which has very often been the limitation of conventional medicine. 

This presentation desires to explore the possibilities of a “journey towards all-round well being” through Ayurveda at global level; a journey which will enable an improved Quality of Life, a better Happiness Index and reduced cost of healthcare all of which is achieved through re-focusing on the core Ayurveda definition of Health and Happiness which includesphysical well being, emotional well being, spiritual well being ,environmental well being and relationship well being. 

Dr. Ramkumar Kutty, Founder Director of Punarnava Ayurveda, an institution committed to Authentic Ayurveda for Universal Well-Being. Over the last 15 years, he has given talks and conducted workshops in the Americas, Africa, Europe, Australia and South-East Asia. Dr.Ramkumar has also been the prime mover behind a series of International Conferences on “Ayurveda & Yoga – where science meets consciousness”. This series began in 2006 and the fifth edition was held in December 2015. He is currently part of a group engaged in the creation of a green self-sustaining authentic Ayurveda healing village on the outskirts of Coimbatore in South India. This village is working towards adhering to the principles of authentic Ayurveda and vastu; and will also engage in natural farming, use of alternate energy sources, waste recycling, environment friendly construction, water management and so on – the idea is to create an “optimum healing environment”. The village has commenced functioning in a small way with 36 patient units – it is called “vaidyagrāma” and is an initiative of Punarnava Ayurveda.
