Ayurveda in Argentina

Practice and trade of Ayurveda is not very popular in Argentina. There are no qualified Ayurveda physicians or full-fledged practice. Some progress has been made in the area of Ayurveda education in the recent years.

In the Medical School of State University of Buenos Aires a Post Graduate Diploma course has been started and Dr. Jorge Luis Berra has been appointed Director for the Post Graduate degree course in Ayurvedic Medicine in the year 2000. These courses are offered to qualified doctors and paramedical professionals. Courses are offered through Foundation de Salud Ayurveda Prema. The foundation has collaboration with Mimonidus University of Argentina, which certifies their Regular and part time PG courses in Ayurveda.

They also have a distant learning course, where the well-known Indian Ayurvedic academicians from Gujarat Ayurved University, Banaras Hindu University and National Institute of Ayurveda, Jaipur, etc. are contributing study materials. All  these courses are run as qualified doctors are practising Post Graduate Courses for Medical Professionals and Ayurveda as a Complementary medicine along with modern medicine. About 300 Medical professionals are qualified from the Foundations courses till date and are practising Ayurveda. The Governments of Venezuela, Chile, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, El Salvador, etc. invited Dr. Jorge Luis Berra, who is the Director of the Foundation de Salud Ayurveda Prema for lectures and briefings in Ayurveda. Ayurveda modules are included in the Diploma course in Tourism Development conducted by UTELAS. Four Latin American Countries, Venezuela, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Guatemala have legally approved the import of 20-30 Ayurveda medicines, some of which have metallic and mineral contents to be used as medicine.

Dr. Sergio Lais-Suarez is offering one-year course (240 Hours) exclusively to medical doctors through his institution, Department de Medicina Ayurveda, Universidad Abierta Ineramericana at Chacabuco since 1997. Dr. Sergio has more than 20 years of experience in Ayurveda and Yoga. He also runs a health spa, where Panchakarma massage is also offered. A visiting faculty from India supports his Institute.
