Ayurveda is the traditional medicine of Nepal. Studies show that more than 60% of the Nepali people use Ayurveda for any aspect of the primary health care & it is estimated that 90% of the diseases, at present, can be cured by Ayurveda, without any side effects & even with less expenses. Meanwhile, in many developed countries, complementary and traditional medicine is becoming more and more popular. The percentage of the population, which has used complementary and traditional medicine at least once, is 48% in Australia, 50% in Canada, 42% in USA, 38% in Belgium and 75% in France.
Today, the world is suffering from a burden of communicable & non-communicable diseases of different prognosis. Although there is a lot of advancement in disease diagnosis & treatment, these all are of a little importance due to emergent life-threatening disease like HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis, Muscular dystrophy etc. So, the world is in search of such therapy that can combat against diseases & guide people for eternal happiness. For this reason, the world is in search of holistic medicine. In a study conducted in Bir Hospital, Kathmandu, on the topic “Attitudes of doctors of Bir Hospital towards the harmonization of Ayurveda & Modern medicine”, 84.52% of the doctors inquired were positive about the combined Rx (treatment) of Ayurveda and Modern medicine to get superior results where no one system is successful. More than 65% of the doctors inquired accepted that they prescribed Ayurveda medicine & more than 33% accepted that they had referred their patients for Ayurveda.
These all facts reflect that the world is in favor of Ayurveda. Nepal is well known for its biological diversity throughout the world. It has made possible for Nepal to possess the medicinal plants of more than 1600 species (out of the 7000 identified species) of which 700 species are in use at the moment. So, one of the most important areas through which Nepal can attain sustainable development is through the development of Ayurveda.
