The pseudoscience tag has come to AYUSH mostly due to cross pathy by several institutionally qualified AYUSH vaiydas in private practice than due to lack of any science.
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 has faith, divine spirit, moral codes, self- discipline etc., than science and experimental proof.
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.
