Ayurveda and yoga can check non-communicable diseases effectively: Shripad Naik

New Delhi: The Indian traditional medicine system and Yoga can play a prominent role in checking Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs). This was stated by Sh.

Moreover, they are economical and safe. Shri Naik said that the Government intends to bring quality and differential changes in the health system in the country. AYUSH Ministry has developed a Yoga protocol for diabetes.

  1. Every one whether doctor or not play to the gallary .where is the proof that Ayuash works. They have no answer for infectious diseases , now they are talking of non communicable diseases. They should understand non communicable diseases have periods of remissions and exacerbation . Before implementing any thing govts have the responsibelity to verify and by scientific proof . Mr minister don\’t try to fool the public just because you r ayush minister. Ayush is bunkam spend the same resources and for portable water ,immunization,nutrition and things like that . Ayush fellows are idiots and even advocate gharba Sanskar. Exacerbation and remmisions are part of disease course. Remmisions can be called as cure Try to understand a diseases don\’t go by the advise of baba , swamijis ,gurijis and pple like that . Don\’t curb scientific temperament in the name traditional methods.
