Ayurvedic research at IVAC is an ongoing effort with the purpose of making useful contributions to mainstream medicine. IVAC hopes to successfully superimpose current know-how on ancient Ayurvedic traditions without sacrificing the integrity of those traditions.


IVAC has committed substantial resources into Ayurveda research. For the first time IVAC is a part of a collaborative research program with Vikram hospital and Heart Care, Mysore and the University of Maryland, USA on the study and prevention of childhood obesity. A number of similar research programs have been planned for the future. This would indeed increase awareness and acceptance by the international community of Ayurveda as a valid ?science of life?. In addition to this IVAC will give Ayurveda a truly global perspective and relevance.

All research papers and findings produced at IVAC will be published in accordance with the Protocols recommended by the World Health Organization on presentations of scientific papers.
