British Association for Vedic Astrology Conference 2019 | London

Amarjeet S Bhamra invited to the British Association for Vedic Astrology Conference 2019 and spoke of the partnership between Jyotish-Yoga-Ayurveda. BAVA aims to preserve and promote the pure science of Jyotish. For the past 20+ years there has been a great revival of traditional Jyotish thanks to translation of many ancient Indian texts, as well as teaching from skilled practitioners, who have kept the tradition alive.  This has coincided with the development of the internet, so Jyotish has spread rapidly over the world. The accumulated knowledge of many generations of Jyotish experts have given us a remarkable system for guiding public and personal life. Astrology has always been popular with society’s leaders. Not only are many British monarchs on record as having their coronations and other key dates elected by the leading astrologers of the time, but many of the most prominent world leaders of recent decades have done so. This avoids the embarrassment resulting from launching projects on days that indicate failure.

Unani Medicine Day | House of Commons

APPG Indian Traditional Sciences organised Unani Medicine Day at Palace of Westminster. Ayurveda and Unani are ancient medicines and most of the pharmacopeia are household remedies.  Dr Mohammed Salim Khan, Principle of the College of Healing Arts UK, expressed his gratitude to the Ministry of AYUSH Government of India, and particularly Amarjeet S Bhamra in bringing the APPG to fruition to celebrate the Indian Traditional Sciences in the Parliament. Dr Khan delivered a brief history of his journey, including slides of his family who arrived in India as physicians in 1526, where they opened a hospital that is still functioning today. That hospital led to the 1908 launch of a school which was opened by Lady Dean, and became a leading school for Unani medicine that was ground-breaking by training women in this field. Later that same year, Hakim Khan created an Ayurveda and Unani Society, and in 1910 he helped to organise the All India Ayurveda and Unani Conference. In 1916, Lord Harding laid the foundation stone of the College was which opened in 1921 by Mahatma Gandhi.  This heritage of AYUSH and in particular Unani medicine, has a considerable pedigree, internationalising Unani Medicine. In Delhi, there is a hospital originally established by the British during their Raj, which is still running and sees some 300 people every day, free of charge, run by 6 Unani doctors.

Ayurveda Day Colloquium 2018 | House of Commons

APPG Indian Traditional Sciences 2018 Colloquium on Ayurveda Day at the Palace of Westminster. Selena van Orden, 5th year student at College of Ayurveda UK appealed eloquently for the NHS to urgently incorporate the Ayurvedic approach to prevent disease. Ayurveda understands six stages of disease, she said, the first three of which are present before any symptoms have manifested and are thus unknown to modern medicine. Treating these early stages of disease can prevent the disease from ever manifesting and could thus save the NHS billions. It was time for patients to take charge of their own health, she said. Dr Rajvinder Kaur an Ayurveda doctor from Ireland since 2007 said that when she arrived there, people had no idea even what turmeric or ginger was! Prevention strategy should be thought through for personalised approach and integration in schools and the health system. Through education and giving people back control of their health then our children will live longer and happier.

Yoga in Health Care Alliance | House of Commons

APPG Indian Traditional Sciences developed a collaborative organisation of leaders within the UK yoga community and healthcare profession, consisting of healthcare practitioners, researchers, and educators. Together we possess tens of thousands of hours of personal study, practice and teaching; and as a group have worked with hundreds of thousands of people all over the world. Many of us have long-established experience in applying yoga in a variety of clinical situations.   There can be no argument that the NHS has a very difficult job. Employing more than 1.5 million people, the doctors, nurses, ambulance staff, GP’s and hospital staff combine to make one of the world’s largest workforces. NHS performs an incredible service despite the continual discussions relating to staff shortages, long hours, hospital deficits and funding.

However, the dedication applied by many members of staff when caring for patients can often come at a cost. A number of studies has documented that NHS staff have over recent years experienced increasing levels of stress, musculoskeletal problems and mental health issues that are affecting their overall health.

  • Just over a quarter (26%) don’t take a break while at work. (Guardian survey).
  • 96% of NHS staff work beyond their contracted hours, doing an average of 5 extra hours per week.
  • Absenteeism costs the NHS £2.4bn per year.
  • Mental health & musculoskeletal problems are the 2 biggest causes of sickness absence in NHS.
  • The amount of ‘stress leave’ recorded by the NHS has risen by 37% in 3 years. (Freedom of Data).

Janet Davies, General Secretary of the Royal College of Nursing has stated,

“These figures paint a bleak picture, but one that sadly will not be a surprise to people working in the NHS. Healthier, happier staff are better able to care for their patients so failing to act on sickness levels is both costly and bad for patient care.”

Recognising the need for change, the culture in the NHS has improved a great deal and in September 2015, NHS Chief Executive Simon Stevens revealed a major drive and £450 million in funding to improve the health and wellbeing of 1.3m health service staff. The initiative will not only support staff, but is expected to provide a knock-on effect for both patients and taxpayers.

National Institute for Health and Care Excellence | House of Lords

APPG Indian Traditional Sciences Meeting on ‘Should Complementary Therapy Services be removed from NICE the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence that Guidelines for Supportive and Palliative Care?’ We all know that the NHS doesn’t have the time or resources to supply all vital services and many people rely on Complementary Medicines. Indeed, if Complementary Medicine was more widely accepted and embraced in Britain and across the world today, so many more people could be enjoying the powerful benefits to be gained in health and wellbeing. This is achieved through addressing the whole person and not just the individual bits of the body.  Also, rather than orthodox medicine’s focus on just trying to control symptoms, we are looking to find underlying causes (which can often be emotional, dietary and energetic) and thus try to find a cure and/or a better, healthier lifestyle, which can help to heal the current conditions, and perhaps, even more importantly, be preventative of illness and disease in the first place.
