ADAVED – First Ayurveda Umbrella Organisation Established in Germany
On May 7, 2019, a wide range of German Ayurveda associations and Ayurvedic institutions came together to officially establish ADAVED as the umbrella organisation for Ayurveda in Germany, which has long been envisioned by many Ayurveda experts. ADAVED’s founders include leaders in the field of education, spas and clinics, products and manufacturing, research and media. Lothar Pirc, CEO of the Maharishi AyurVeda Health Centre Bad Ems, was elected to the board as a representative of the German Ayurveda Association (DGA).
“The goals of this umbrella organization for Ayurveda in Germany are the promotion, dissemination, integration, and recognition of Ayurveda as a comprehensive medical system in Germany. To get Ayurveda recognized in Germany as a traditional health system, and to promote and spread it, that is the purpose of ADAVED.”
