FSSAI granting licence to several herbal ingredients such as Thippili powder, Kasturi manjal and Mudakathan as food supplements being objected by some Siddha experts, seems quite bizarre.
Save AYUSH from Pseudoscience tag, declare as traditional wisdom for paramedical benefit, stop cross-pathy
Government of India, especially the Ministry of AYUSH must clearly define and differentiate AYUSH from proven science by limiting and describing AYUSH as ancient traditional wisdom and not proven science.
Glory of Calendula, Lavender, Jojoba, Avacado etc., AYUSH could not earn in international market – A thought for Ministry of AYUSH
There are several of our approaches and strategies in handling AYUSH had gone flop and turned topsy-turvy purely because the components called merit, emotion and reality we did not separate while promoting AYUSH.
Both Siddha and Ayurveda are not just treasure houses of paramedical wisdom but are indeed an inexhaustible mine for humanity to continuously excavate newer and newer healing wisdom.
AYUSH emphasizes on aligning the mind-body harmony so that the patient is sufficiently counselled and prepared to deal the health problem.
Cross pathy should not be allowed to destroy AYUSH tradition in India. AYUSH way of life, India must re-invent soon.
Unless the cross pathy is dealt severely, we cannot either promote AYUSH or achieve total and complete health care where body and mind are taken together in the treatment process.
Forgoing our age-old traditional harmless medicinal science may not be proved to be good for the inclusive health of the nation.
Government must enforce a re-orientation programme to all those Siddha and Ayurveda practitioners in private practice to feel proud about own system and permanently abstain from cross pathy.
