Diminishing importance of Ayurveda
India, in terms of medical heritage, has been blessed with glorious achievements not only in medicine and surgery but also in development of codes on medical ethics since ages.
Even after creation of a separate ministry for AYUSH in 2014, the system remains clueless and direction less and is struggling for survival.
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.
Giving permission to prescribe allopathic drugs to AYUSH vaid is like quackery with black cat security
Integrated health care approach should not be confused with permission to AYUSH vaid to prescribe certain allopathic drugs.
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.
Siddha system is the geographic indicator of Tamil philosophy, tradition and spirituality – Let not BSMS curriculum be in English
Like how Ayurveda is linked with our Vedas and Sanskrit language, Siddha is linked with Tamil culture and tradition and hence the teaching of Siddha at BSMS level must be in Tamil and only then the true scholarliness of Siddha system would remain relevant and glorious.
AYUSH vaidya must create right perception; follow tradition in spirit and letter to popularize the system
AYUSH belongs to our tradition, culture and civilization. AYUSH came as an extension of our sacred divine practices to offer health and wellness to people.
Making our society healthy, conscious of all health titbits and morally and spiritually responsible is equally important as achieving WHO prescription of doctor-population ratio.
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.
