AYURVEDIC DOCTOR AND AYURVEDIC YOGA THERAPIST
Antonio (Vishnu) Aragona AD, is not a medical doctor or osteopathic physician. After a strict outlined process created by NAMA (National Ayurveda Medical Association), based on his education, training, and clinical background he has met the requirements as a professional member at the Ayurvedic Doctor (AD) level, along with satisfying the requirements for Ayurvedic Yoga Therapist (AYT). NAMA is the leading Ayurveda organization creating standards of what it means to practice Ayurveda in the USA. By no means is this to be confused with becoming a medical doctor (MD) which requires a whole other level of training and licensure. Seeing Dr. Aragona is not a replacement for an MD/DO. Here is an additional "Statement of Understanding" that is signed prior to working with Antonio Aragona:
I understand that Antonio Aragona is a Doctor of Ayurveda, who provides me with education, Ayurvedic coaching, and information on the Ayurvedic approach to healthcare, which may affect my diet, lifestyle and health in a positive way. I understand that Antonio may be referred to as Dr. Aragona as a result of the NAMA recognition but I also understand that Antonio is NOT a medical doctor or licensed medical practitioner, has not presented himself as such, and does not seek to diagnose, treat or prescribe for diseases, disorders or other pathological conditions. I agree that I am interested in enhancing my own abilities to regain balance and establish health in mind and body, and this is the reason I have sought his Ayurvedic services. I agree that I may consult a licensed physician for any concern, at any time, about any disease or pathology, which now exists or arises at any time during my professional relationship with Antonio. I understand that Antonio encourages regular medical checkups from a licensed medical professional of my choice, and that any medication that I am now taking upon my licensed physician’s advice, or will take in the future, is taken strictly according to my licensed physician’s directions. I also understand that only a licensed physician of my choice can advise on medication dosages or the discontinuance or resumption of such medication.
