 Inaugural Address by Tony Nader, MD, PhD, MARR – Patron of the Congress

This Congress took its inspiration from an epic 17th century Dutch treatise on medicinal plants of the Western Ghats of South India called Hortus Malabaricus. The inspiration is to connect India, The Netherlands, and Europe through their rich botanical heritage and, at the same time, present the therapeutic potential of plants and the natural approaches to health available in Ayurveda and in traditional remedies from Europe.

During the congress Ayurvedic scholars from different countries presented the scientific approach of Ayurveda as a prevention-oriented healthcare system.

The Congress was held in the beautiful setting of the historical town Leiden having centuries old scenic Dutch water canals, one of Europe’s oldest botanical garden and a major Dutch University and library.

As the congress venue one of the main conference centres cum hotels in Leiden, Holiday Inn Leiden, was chosen, a four-star hotel equipped with International conference facilities and dignified halls for the purpose, including dining and exhibition space.
