Sri Lanka Ayurveda tradition
Sri Lanka has its own Ayurvedic system based on a series of prescriptions handed down from generation to generation over a period of 2500 years. Ancient inscriptions on rock surfaces reveal the full establishment of the medical services, which existed within the country.
Ancient hospital complexes which were active centuries ago, and those ancient ruins are the best evidences of our ancient Ayurveda history. There are many local and foreign tourists visiting those ancient hospitals, because these are highly attractive ruins. They have come to symbolize a sense of healing and care which was so prevalent already at that early time. The interrelationship between Ayurveda and royalty has brought Buddhism and medical care into a top position in Sri Lankan administration.
In Sri Lanka, Ayurvedic training includes western medicine alongside traditional Ayurvedic subjects. The diploma can only be acquired after a 6 year full-time training at a government university. The Ministry of Health controls the Department of Ayurveda, headed by the Commissioner of Ayurveda, the Ayurvedic Drug Corporation and the Ayurvedic Research Institute. The Ayurvedic Medical Council maintains and controls the registration of physicians and code of practice, ethics and conduct. Ayurveda has its own unique quality and thus it treats the person, rather than the disease.
Who is my friend Nuwan?
Nuwan is my nearest neighbour, living in only 50 metres distance from my home. Nuwan is an experienced tourist guide/driver/chaufer guide in Sri Lanka since 2003. He is very qualified and his guiding licence is registered as A-706 under the Sri Lanka Tourist Devolopment Authority (SLTDA). I have been knowing him since the year 2000 and our families are good friends. As he has international contacts with holiday makers in Sri Lanka, we agreed to share this Sinhala Ayurvedic Medicine information with the entire world.
