Medical Tourism Escalates
As more American consumers become involved in their health decisions, there has been an uptick in medical tourism. One example is the increased traffic to Indian destinations where consumers can engage in Ayurveda, an ancient system of medicine. Some make the trip because they suffer from an illness while other go in order to stay health through Ayurveda’s holistic approach. As the world continues to shrink and consumer minds continue to open, signs are that medical tourism escalates.
The world’s medical tourism industry so far has been undervalued while its worth is around US$500 billion, with an expected annual growth rate of up to 25% within the forthcoming 10 years. This market trend has begun a strong and consolidated growth, and by 2025 it could be worth up to US$3 trillion.The figures are based on a report published by VISA and Oxford Economics 2017.
Among the main destinations proposed to medical tourism seekers is the Indian Sub-continent which is prevailing because of its low-cost value-added services, high-quality assistance, and the wide selection of treatments based on Ayurveda’s ancient medical treatments.
Dating back to 5,000 years, Ayurveda is among the oldest holistic medicines in the world, as certified by the “Science of Life.”
Its healing power is widely considered the oldest form of curative medicine, the answer to almost all the disturbances known to mankind. Known to help to prevent diseases, maintain good health, and to guarantee a true balance between man, body and nature.
Ayurvedic medicines and supplements are made up of natural substances, free of side effects, iincluding physical or psychological dependence. They re-integrate the energy system of the body, relieving pains and mental stress.
