Recognisation of Ayurveda In Melbourne 


Is ayurveda recognise in Australia

If you are into natural medicine, you may want to explore Ayurveda, but you may have a question like “Is Ayurveda Recognised in Australia?” we are here to answer.


Ayurveda is recognized in Australia as a Complementary Health Medicine. Ayurveda or Ayurvedic medicine originated in India around 5000 years ago. It mainly offers natural treatments.


Ayurveda Practitioners in Australia are mostly registered with the Australasian Association of Ayurveda, also known as AAA. Ayurveda came into existence in Australia in 1988 with the formation of AAA. Today AAA has the largest number of Ayurvedic Practitioners registered in Australia. Over 120 Ayurvedic Practitioners are registered with AAA, and Melbourne alone has over 40 Ayurveda practitioners.


Other Registered Associations recognize and register Ayurveda Practitioners, such as Australasian Ayurvedic Practitioner Association (AAPA) and Australian Natural Therapists Association (ANTA). An Ayurvedic Practitioner Registered with any of these associations enjoys professional indemnity and public liability insurance. These standard requirements for an Australian Ayurvedic Practitioner help keep Australians safe by ensuring that All Ayurvedic practitioners maintain the high standards of Ayurvedic practices.


In Australia, Ayurvedic Practitioners could offer Private Health Fund Rebates under the Ayurveda Modalities. As only a few private health insurances have Ayurveda covers for their members, AAA is working hard with other insurances company to add Ayurveda as a modality.


Ayurveda Practitioners are also governed by a Constitution and Professional Code of Conduct and Ethics for Non- Registered Health Practitioners in Australia. Non-Registered Health Practitioner includes those not registered with Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). Mainstream Medical Doctors, Nurses, Pharmacists, Psychologists, etc., are registered with AHPRA. 


Who are Ayurvedic Practitioners?


Ayurvedic practitioners include the following:


1. Ayurvedic Doctor: An Ayurvedic Doctor hold a Bachelor or above qualification in Ayurvedic Medicine. This qualification is offered in India, Nepal, and Srilanka and is known as Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery or BAMS. It is usually six years of full-time University study. This qualification should be distinct from a Medical Doctor in Australia. Ayurvedic Doctors are recognized as Naturopaths in Australia by the Vetassess Governing body. An Ayurvedic Doctor is qualified to make an Ayurvedic diagnosis based on various Ayurvedic principles, including Ayurvedic body type and dosa imbalance in the client, considering various other factors. Ayurvedic Doctors can offer all components of Ayurvedic Treatment, including Diet and Lifestyle recommendations, single or compound Ayurvedic Medicine Herbal Products, Yoga, meditation, various Ayurvedic therapies, including massage, Shiro Dhara, etc., and Panchakarma detox program. 


2. Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant: This Qualification is offered in Australia by various Registered Training Providers at various TAFEs. There are two qualifications offered in Australia, namely Diploma and Advanced Diploma. Ayurvedic Lifestyle consultants can offer various Ayurveda-based Lifestyle and diet recommendations, including yoga and meditation. They may offer single-herb Ayurvedic medicinal preparations to their clients based on their level of qualification. They can also offer various Ayurveda therapies, including massage, Shirodhara, etc.


Ayurvedic medicine is a very vast area of natural medicine. Classic Ayurvedic medicine is mainly plant-based but may sometimes contain processed heavy metals and animal products. 


Australians should find relief knowing that various legal authorities, including TGA Act 1989, strictly monitor Ayurvedic Medicine in Australia. These authorities ensure that only plant-based Ayurvedic medicines, with some exceptions (milk and milk products and bee wax and bee honey, etc.), are prescribed in Australia. 


One should be very mindful about the source where they buy their Ayurvedic Medicines as a Registered Ayurvedic Practitioner would only prescribe what is legislatively advised in Australia. But you may still find various Ayurvedic Medicines being sold in various Indian Grocery stores, other retail shops, or even online. This type of Ayurvedic Medicine may have yet to pass the strict Australian legal requirements, including correct import Licensing for Ayurvedic Medicine in Australia, quarantine measures, and customs clearance in Australian Border security to protect Australian natural Flora and Fauna.

  • I consulted Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for my teenage son to improve his height. He was 4.11 at 13. I was very worried as we are not tall parents and I thought to do something natural soon before its too late. I took a phone consultation with Dr Saini at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic. Range of dietary, lifestyle changes were suggested and some Ayurvedic medicine was posted to me. I am very happy to say that with in six months, my son has shown a significant improvement in height. His family and friends have all acknowledged the improvement in height. I highly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for natural height improvements.

  • Highly recommend seeing Pooja for various womens health issues. Pooja offers long term alternative approaches to self managing one's health with the holistic ayurvedic system. Her manner and concern is sincere and she is very conscious of leaving you with the tools you need to take care of yourself beyond her consultations.

  • Simply the best thing I have done for myself and my health. Just knowing that Dr Saini is there is so comforting.

  • I strongly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic to anyone who is looking into natural and organic health benefits. I consulted Ayurvedic Doctor Dr Gurnam Saini for hair loss treatment, as I had almost tried everything from expensive hair products to medicine for years and was highly disappointed. Dr Saini was very detailed and made me understand how lot of factors including my digestive fire, my sleep, my lifestyle etc. were directly impacting my hair health. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and his passion about getting me to understand the root cause. I clearly figured out how I was not in sync with my body. I am actually surprised that these organic ayurvedic medicines are very effective, as that was not my immediate expectation and I thought it will be a very lengthy process, but I was ready to give it a go! He also gave a me a specific ayurvedic organic hair oil to put on my scalp. It's been 3 months and I have almost completely stopped loosing hair and gaining more volume in my hair. I also found that taking shirodhara and nasya and head massage ayurvedic therapies of Dr Saini's recommendation was also important part of the treatment. I now feel more connected to my body and definitely my hair growth is visible to me and my family. Thank you Dr Gurnam Saini and Dr Pooja Saini (for those amazing therapies). You guys are working for a great cause.

  • Hello all, I have been consulting Dr. Saini for past 2years or so and have found his treatment very helpful and effective. He has a deep knowledge of Aryuveda and listens to your health issues, doubts and concerns patiently and advices Aryuved herbs and gives advice accordingly. He is kind and easy to talk to. I highly recommend Dr. Saini to anyone who is looking for treatment for their health issues or improving their overall health.

  • I decided to take my 10 yr old daughter to Dr Saini after 9.5 yrs of struggling with eczema and food intolerances, and no solutions found but topical, long term use of cortisone creams. After only one month, we saw massive improvements in her skin, finally clearing up the majority of her eczema. This was done with herbal capsules and without needing to remove various foods from her diet. That improvement allowed us to tackle other health concerns like her consistent disturbed sleep. Now 4 months on, her skin is perfect, and her sleep is mostly uninterrupted. Any sporadic nighttime waking is for a very short period of time. And even better, now we can focus on her digestion which is my last concern for her. I can’t recommend Ayurvedic medicine enough to gently and naturally heal and balance out your body. l had done lots of reading on Ayurveda before we tried it, and all my expectations have been met and I’m sure will be exceeded in the near future. Thank you Dr Saini, for your kind and gentle consultations, and genuine interest in better health outcomes for your patients.

  • Thank you Dr Saini for the remarkable improvement in my health since first seeing you only 3 months ago. With herbal supplements, herbal teas and a single panchakarma treatment I have already experienced the following benefits that western medicine had not been able to assist: * Lower blood pressure permitting a reduction in medication. * Reduced anxiety. * No dizziness or fainting following sudden exercise such as climbing stairs. * Eye floaters gone. * Persistent (2 year) cough almost gone. * Frequent reflux gone. With continued treatment and lifestyle changes I am looking forward to: * normal blood pressure without medication, * weight loss without strict diets, * cough gone!

  • I am very happy with the treatment and thankful for Dr.Saini. I was suffering from psoriasis for past 7 years. I never had such an improvement with any medications before. Psoriasis in my face was completed cleared in first 3 months. And almost 50% improvement in other places of my body in last one month. Ayurveda has a better impact on mind , body and soul rather than harmful anti immune tablets which is used as a medication for the condition. I really appreciate Dr.Saini for the his compassion.

  • I started to get depressive mood and nightmares since diagnosed with varicocele and hydrocele. Specialist recommended me getting coil embolization to block the veins. I was hesitant with the idea of it and ignored his advice. I thought I would try with natural approach to deal with my health issues. After reading online I started to make healthy changes in my life-style and food regime e.g. avoiding inflammatory and junk food, energy drinks etc. Also reduced smoking and alcohol for 3 months. But my pain and swelling in the scrotal area did not improve. More over I started to get lack of libido, premature ejaculation and erectile difficulties. Due to that I started to remain frustrated and angry most of the time. My relationship with my family members, friends and partner started to get difficult. Finally came across Dr Saini ayurvedic medicine clinic in Melbourne. Had a detial consult with Dr Saini. His Ayurveda approach for varicocele and its related problem worked like magic for me. First month he modified my life-style and food, based on my ayurvedic makeup. He also introduced some his own blends of organic herbs and spices with daily breathing exercise. In second month I did panchakarma detoxification. Now there is no pain or swelling in my scrotal area. My manpower is back to normal (even better than earlier), having grounded emotions and sound sleep with best physical and mental health. I highly recommend everyone to follow ayurvedic life style and its natural way of healing your body. Dr Saini is best in his job.
