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.
The paramedical tag if is given to AYUSH and its role is defined well, not only we can eliminate cross pathy and medication health fraud but also we can re-invent the significance and relevance of AYUSH to our society.
The money Ministry of AYUSH incur on such mission without doing the root cause correction, it would be a wasteful exercise and nothing else. The nation is at loss.
Cross pathy is if not prevented; it may destroy the relevance and values of 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.
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.
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.
