My Ayurveda teacher Fr Jacob Gnalian is holding the 1st International Ayurveda Convention and Expo next month with the theme “WELNESS FOR ALL”.

It will be held in UP Diliman on September 25 and 26.

The main objective of the convention is the promotion of Ayurveda and other alternative health care modalities to solve  health problems. The high cost and multiple side effects of conventional medical practices have given rise to the search for complementary treatments. Over the last five thousand years, Ayurveda, the ancient Indian science of medicine, has continuously evolved to cure even so-called incurable illnesses through non-invasive natural sources. As practiced here in the Philippines at the Sandhi Ayurveda Clinic and Research Center, founded by the Missionaries of the East, Ayurveda has proven to be effective, safe and affordable in the Philippine environment with no reports of any adverse side effects or contra-indications.

This is organized to provide those interested in sustaining good health with the opportunity, knowledge and skills to help themselves and others towards inner peace and wellness.

 AYURVEDA- Science of Life- is an ancient Indian medical science aimed at the prevention and cure of illness, through the restoration and maintenance of the fundamental balance of the principles (Vata, Pitha, Kapha) in living beings as a whole - body, mind, and spirit. In other words empower the individual to attain and sustain balance within him/herself- body, mind and spirit through restoring harmony with Nature.

Key Principle of Ayurveda 

The principle of Ayurveda is based on the principle of Panchabuttas and Tridoshas. The root cause of sickness is imbalance of Doshas and accumulation of  Malas and Amam. While Conventional medical systems treat the symptoms, Ayurveda treats the root cause and gives lasting cure. It is beneficial to learn the how and why.     

Key Elements of Aurveda:

Preventive and Curative practices have evolved over 5000 years and include complex combinations of natural resources (preparations) which have neither adverse nor contraindicative effects.  With its "emphasis on sustaining health, as much as on curing illness", Ayurveda is very likely the most complete health system developed thus far for human illnesses.

Dr. A.P. J Abdul Kalam 
Hon. Former President of India says:  

“Health can be maintained and diseases can be prevented. Though technology is advancing, People are still falling sick. Health care costs keep on increasing, and there is no way to reduce that unless you introduce prevention. The best prevention is through Ayurveda, because it is a very comprehensive science system based on natural medicine, which is devoid of toxicity.”
