Dr Trehan, Baba Ramdev announce the fusion of modern and ancient medicine

New Delhi: Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev and Dr Naresh Trehan, Chairman, Medanta The Medicity, discussed about holistic healing of heart diseases by Yoga, Ayurveda and meditation along with modern diagnostics on the concluding day of India’s first International Coronary Congress, organised by Medanta The Medicity.

The ICC 2016 was a three day event that began on Nov 11.

During the discussion, the experts viewed that the fusion of modern medical system and ancient medicines will help in healing various heart related ailments like hypertension, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, arthritis, etc.

While addressing the audience, Dr Naresh Trehan,Chairman, Medanta the Medicity said: “Around six crore people in India already have heart related diseases and another six crore are in line. The current modern medical systems treat patients using methods like antibiotics, chemotherapy, surgeries, radiation, etc. but even after successful surgeries, the patients’ body is left in great trauma.”




He said: “The fusion of both- modern and ancient medicine- helps strengthen your body and fight diseases. This new-era medicine will emerge from India and will also benefit the people who are unable to access quality healthcare services.”

Stressing on the importance of Yoga and Ayurveda, Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev said, “Less physical activity, stress, unhealthy eating habits, smoking & drinking, undisciplined lifestyle, etc leads to mainly heart diseases, obesity, high cholesterol, hypertension, and high Blood Pressure”. He suggested, “Denying daily exercises lead to many diseases; correcting lifestyle and adopting simple exercises in your daily routine will build immunity. These practices can cure almost 99 per cent of diseases”.

The ICC 2016 will be a first-of-its-kind comprehensive course on coronary artery disease management bringing together the most eminent cardiac surgeons and cardiologists from the world on the same platform for a comprehensive overview of the subject.

The objective of ICC 2016 is to break the stereotype mind set of individualistic approach of coronary artery disease management towards more broad-based approaches built on consensus. It is the most comprehensive course on updated coronary artery disease management to meet the unmet needs of young cardiac surgeons.

This event has brought together the Cardiac surgeons, interventional cardiologists, clinical cardiologists, general practitioners, nurse practitioners, Cath lab technicians, and other healthcare professionals with a special interest in the field of cardiovascular medicine.

  1. Alternative medicine has a role in prevention and life style change but it is only modern medicine that is truly curative. This distinction needs to be clearly underscored.

  2. fusion of medicine with trading is already leading to erosion of respect of medical profession. Piggy – backing on popular sentiment may be smart marketing but does not bode well for medical ethics.

    Holistic medicine is a conduit to introduce alternative medicine systems with undocumented results into a system which boasts \’ Evidence based Medicine \’ to propagate itself further and make it acceptable to the gullible public.
    It\’s like fusing \’ jyotish shahstra\’ with modern day avionics and calling it Holistic Flight control.
    The practitioners of modern medicine should resent such back door entries for surreptitious modalities.
    If these treatment modalities, ancient, as they are, couldn\’t prevent plagues, choleras, maternal deaths, decreased life expectancy, Tuberculosis ,Polio and Leprosy which has hounded humanity in the past, of which we see a far betettr picture today, thanks to the practice of \’modern medicine\’, why, do I ask fuse it with something which has remained purely anecdotal and abstruse ?

    Stop Holistic, be pure!!

    To add to my contention above, Ayurvedacharyas have already started using modern medicine tools like the Stethoscope, BP apparatus , imaging modalities and Laboratory facilities etc, so in effect it is the Alternative medicine which has already fused with Modern Medicine practice, saying goodbye to \” nadi-pariksha\”.
    So there is no need for Evidence Based Medicine to \”fuse\” with Ayurveda.
    It\’s their \” need\” and not the need of the \”times\” as some marketers like Trehan are propagating.
