    There should b reorientation programs among themselves

  2. Reorientation for what . All of these bunkam fellows want orientatation course to learn modren medicine. These fellows don\’t have knowledge about any disease , simply they talk and treat our unsuspecting and scientifically illiterate public. Even some ayush fellows are against vaccination of our kids. There is not one scientific publication about efficacy of their the so called treatment. They say they have or can cure every disease without knowing the pathology . They don\’t have guts or honest enough to accept facts. No question of orientation programme they should not be practicing and treating public . Homeopathy has only placebo effect , ayurvedhacharyas use all modren medicine and they are the heighest use of steroids . You go to any Ayurvedhic clinic and verify. You bunkam fellows have some shame.
