“India should follow China’s model in popularising ancient Indian medicine. China is on par with contemporary west medicine and consumers in China prefer the traditional Chinese medicine,” said Joint Director, Department of AYUSH, Dr Ahalya Sharma.
Addressing at the graduation day of JSS Ayurveda Medical College here in the city on Wednesday, she said, “Ayurveda will be the main stream of medicines by 2035, and more responsibilities lies on the young generations who are practising Ayurveda. The challenge in front of Ayurveda practitioner is working on safe integrated model and research. Providing affordable, acceptable and convincing healthcare for the people will be another major challenge,”
On the occasion, Vice Chancellor of Trans Disciplinary University, Padmashree Darshan Shankar said, “Ayurveda is the richest knowledge system in the world. We can solve various medical, health problems of today’s generation by treating through Ayurveda. Around 5000 clinical observations have been recorded in Ayurveda. But it’s unfortunate that today so many theses are following the reduction method of research that Allopathy follows. There are methods to do research in different interventions and paper based on the research can be published in highest journals.”
Dr C G Betsurmath, Executive Secretary of JSS University, Channa Basappa and others were present.
