A Review of the Evolution of Ayurveda in the United States

Interest in Ayurveda slowly grew in the United States during the 1970s and early 1980s, though the seeds of Ayurveda had been planted and nurtured decades earlier. In 1995, I found myself at the frontline of its development when I began the California College of Ayurveda. At that time, there were no official schools of Ayurvedic medicine in the United States, or for that matter outside of India. Thus, the California College of Ayurveda became the first state-approved Ayurvedic college in the United States. Since that time, I have both witnessed and participated in the growth of the profession. It has been an honor to do so and I am very grateful to the early teachers who inspired my journey: Dr David Frawley and Dr Subhash Ranade. This article recounts the history of Ayurveda in the United States to date as well as issues related to the development of the profession.
