Addressing the gathering, Sonowal emphasized that a transformative shift is underway in the education, practice, and drug development sectors of AYUSH. He said the National Commission for Indian Systems of Medicine and the National Commission for Homoeopathy have aligned AYUSH education according to the new education policy, and are attracting new talents to the extent that not only AYUSH is the first choice of treatment, but could also become the first choice for students seeking medical education.
The minister said homeopathy medicines are easily administered and acceptable to a large number of people. He further said public acceptance of homeopathy is high, and people seek treatment from family physicians for generations, an official statement said.
