Allopathic doctors in Uttarakhand to get training in Ayurveda

Dehradun: Allopathic doctors in Uttarakhand will undergo a six-day training in Ayurveda and the programme will help clear doubts about the efficacy of the traditional medicine system, Chief Secretary S.S. Sandhu said on Saturday.

"Allopathy and Ayurveda are not contradictory, but complementary to each other," he said and added that the State Ayush Department would conduct the training programme using presentations based on facts and documents.  

The purpose of the six-day training programme is to bust myths about Ayurvedic treatment and help allopathic doctors shed their doubts about its efficacy, the chief secretary said. The dates for the programme are yet to be announced. 

Mr. Sandhu said Ayurveda is not just a system of medicine but a way of leading a disease-free life. Being the hub of Yoga and Ayurveda, Uttarakhand can benefit in various ways through a renewed emphasis on Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Naturopathy and Homeopathy, a PTI report quoted him as saying.
