Ayurveda-Russia -India Association (ARIA), an organisation of the Ayurveda doctors practising in Russia,  and Ayurveda Hospitals Managements Association (AHMA)   have signed an MoU to promote Ayurveda  in Russia.

ARIA president Anita Karilio Arcas and AHMA general secretary Baby Krishnan said their aim was to promote Ayurveda by ensuring quality treatment for Russian patients in hospitals here and check the exploitation by massage parlours and unauthorised centres.

They also have plans for arranging a ‘Knowledge Exchange  Programme’  for sensitising the doctors practising modern medicine in Russia about Ayurveda. Anita Karilio Arcas said they had been in touch with Ayurveda doctors since 1995.  She said they were trying to get legalisation for Ayurveda.

They were also sensitising people about Ayurveda in Russia. She pointed out that several people from Russia were already visiting Kerala to undergo an Ayurvedic treatment.

There are Ayurvedic centres functioning in various parts of  Moscow and they hope to give a boost to the sector in the coming days.

According to the Nagarjuna Institute of  Ayurvedic Research,  Kaladi, director Dr Madhav Chandran the MoU would help bring more Russian tourists seeking Ayurveda treatment to Kerala. Nagarjuna  will also provide treatment to Russian citizens at its Kaladi centre.  There are also plans for sending more doctors and paramedical staff to Russia to provide treatment. ARIA executive director Kuzmin Kuzmin,  AHMA president   A M Anwar and others also attended.
