AYUSH to support integrative medical practice

Ministry of AYUSH will support a new integrative approach with modern medicine, overhauling the practice and teaching of indigenous medicine, including Ayurveda, Yoga, and Unani, and systematically documenting and collecting data said Dr. Rajesh Kotecha, Special Secretary, Ministry of AYUSH, in Kochi last Sunday. Dr. Kotecha was participating as the chief guest at Amrita Samyogam 2017, an international conference on integrative Ayurveda and modern medicine, organised by the School of Ayurveda, Amrita University, in association with Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences. Information Technology will be the backbone of AYUSH systems in the country, as it will provide a platform to collate information on various indigenous treatment methods that will help create a database for future research, he said. He added that a national AYUSH grid would be created connecting various hospitals and research labs for data analysis.
