About the Conference 

Ayurveda is not merely a system of medicine; it is a way of life that is underpinned by principles that are eternal and universal.It is eternal as it’s stood the test of time in remaining consistent and as relevant as it was over 5000 years ago.The universality of Ayurveda is the focus of this conference as it is the fundamental principles of Ayurveda that can be and applied to any part of the world and its inhabitants.The five elements, a key concept of Ayurveda, are everywhere, in every country, in all of us. Their composition and qualities adapt to different ecosystems, seasons and climates.
Understanding the geo-climatic nature, flora, fauna and local traditions pertaining to food, lifestyle and medicine is an essential part of tapping into nature’s offerings to preserve and promote the wellbeing of all.Every substance can be a medicine if the knowledge is available in how to harvest, process and use it.
A plant that thrives in a locality contains the ‘osa’ or essence required to thrive in that place.Such plants that offer health benefits in this way are called Aushadhi and it’s our responsibility to learn, share and preserve that knowledge now and in the future with the help of an expert line up of speakers who are bearers of this knowledge.
Aushadhi 2022 is the first endeavour of its kind to reveal the Aushadhi of Australia, for natural, ethical, safe and sustainable medicine for the future.
