Registered by the Government of West Bengal under Act XXVI based on the Central Government Act XXI of 1860.
True to its motto, "Indigenous Roots, Global Pursuits", the Board has brought alternative medicines to the attention of the masses and trained thousands of students in India and abroad through its various courses in the different disciplines of alternative medicines such as acupressure, acupuncture, aromatherapy, electro homeopathy, naturopathy, biochemical medicine, reiki, etc. to further facilitate the study of alternative medicines and provide a high standard of educational programs.
It would not be an exaggeration to state that despite the consistent advance of western medicine, affordable and effective health care is still beyond the reach of vast sections of the world's population, particularly those residing in the developing world. A few decades ago, it was generally assumed by the scientific community that medicinal plants, homeopathic doses, acupuncture needles, yoga etc. could be safely relegated to no more than a footnote of medical history. But this assumption has indeed turned out to be a very premature one. During the past two decades, the upsurge in herbology, acupressure, acupuncture and yoga etc. across the world has been phenomenal. This renewed interest has generated an international awareness on the richness and importance of the subject. It is to cater to this interest and the need for trained practitioners in the field of alternative medicines that the Indian Board of Alternative Medicines offers a variety of multi level courses in alternative medicines.
