Cross pathy, gift of science – AYUSH versus gift of god

Also Read


We must legally and scientifically separate what is called as the ‘gift of God’ from the ‘gift of science’ when we deal with AYUSH and allopathic system of medicine so that the conflicts between the two can be minimized and simultaneously the acceptance of both can be maximized.

The traditional healing practices such as Siddha and Ayurveda are believed to have come as the ‘gift of God’ to humanity. On the contrary the allopathic system of medicine has come out of rigorous scientific investigations and scientific proof. The healing practices gifted by God should be preserved with its fullness, native essence, spirit and feelings. Native healing practices like Siddha and Ayurveda has lots to offer to humanity by way of providing mind healing, bio-moral guidance and divine hope etc., to deal the health challenges of progressive and degenerative in nature.

But admixing of modern medicine portions in the curriculum of Siddha and Ayurveda has totally derailed the credence of the system and the evidence being the rampant cross pathy by most of the institutionally qualified Siddha and Ayurveda vaidya in private practice. Those AYUSH vaidyas exhibit great struggles to prove they are also doctor to justify cross pathy. Unfortunately they earn quackery and medical mal practice feel to AYUSH through such engagement. AYUSH has lots to offer to humanity as the system is rich in paramedical procedures and recipes. The simple herbs like ginger, pepper, beetle leaves etc., can offer wonderful paramedical relief which the AYUSH vaidyas can proudly promote and propagate.

The massage therapy using different oils for different types of pain, rejuvenation, relaxation are quite unique which the AYUSH vaidyas in private practice can promote than engaging in illegal act called cross pathy without proper learning either about the allopathic drug or about the diagnosis. Many Siddha vaidyas in private practice in Tamil Nadu through cross pathy has destroyed the glory and significance of Siddha system. However still several Siddha vaidyas are offering great health care service to humanity by practicing strictly Siddha system in Tamil Nadu.

The roots of Siddha system lies in human faith, belief system, discipline, bio-moral recipes, diet regimen and complete submission to the treating vaidya. It is not just the recipe that relieves the patient but their faith in the vaidya also is needed for faster recovery. In that sense our ancient vaidyas had magical / Midas touch to treat the patient.

The gift of God must be further developed with the help of scientific tests. Mixing or including allopathic portions such as anatomy, pathology, physiology, pharmacology etc., in the curriculum of AYUSH would harm the progress of the system and that would result in secret cross pathy by the vaidyas in private practice.


Need of the hour is to separate AYUSH completely from allopathic system of medicine and infuse research science and basic science to the vaidyas separately in order to develop their curiosity, research flair and research activities.

Cross pathy by AYUSH vaidyas in private practice must be curbed strictly and only then the efforts of Ministry of AYUSH to promote AYUSH as great source of health, wellness and paramedical wisdom become successful.

The ethnicity of AYUSH lies also partly in human faith, occultism, divine faith, tradition, culture and religion. Therefore AYUSH should not be separated from its umbilical cord and AYUSH curriculum should not be polluted or adulterated with portions of allopathic science. Instead, AYUSH must be promoted for wellness and paramedical care than for treating diseases. Cross pathy is if not prevented; it may destroy the relevance and values of AYUSH.
