In 2005, the Examining Board of Natural Medicine Practitioners™ Canada was the first organization to create the guideline for the safe and effective practice of Ayurveda in Canada, carefully adhering to the Benchmarks of The World Health Organization.
Historically, we have registered Ayurveda Practitioners and issued the DNM®, Registered Naturotherapy Practitioner®, Registered Lifestyle Management Practitioner®, and Registered Nutritional Medicine Practitioner® (AYU), thus enabling Ayurvedic Vaidyas and Practitioners to develop professional practices to that effect. Siddha Medicine is also included in this category.
