No cross pathy but Ayush systems and modern medicine specialists can work together

All systems of medicine are different. You cannot become expert in one without reading the course and cannot practice one without being registered with respective council.

Ayurveda is touching the world and India is the heritage country of Ayurveda. The need is for both of them to work together and if we can achieve the following we can conquer the world

Combining principles of Panchkarma in chronic diseases and reducing the quantity and duration of allopathic drugs.
Combining Panchkarma and modern medicine in reversing ageing and life style diseases like heart, kidney diseases etc.
If we can reduce the duration and dose of antibiotics in modern system of medicine.
If we can tackle the problem of drug resistance in the country.
If we can find an indigenous vaccines from Ayurveda or Homeopathy etc etc.

Ayurveda Update in the Recent Media

1. AMAI urges Union government to declare Ayurveda as the mainstream medicine of India:

Peethaambaran Kunnathoor, Chennai; Tuesday, January 13, 2015: The Ayurveda Medical Association of India (AMAI) has urged the Ayush Department to declare Ayurveda system of treatment as the mainstream medical system of the country.  The AMAI passed a unanimous resolution in this regard at its 15th state conference held at Kollam in Kerala on January 11.For Ayurveda, challenge is to keep off allopathic drugs, says PM Narendra Modi was the headline in one of the news item appeared in the Indian Express.

2. Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the valedictory function of the 6th World Ayurveda Congress in New Delhi on November 10th said the biggest challenge for Ayurveda is the inclination of its practitioners towards prescribing allopathic drugs.

"The biggest challenge for Ayurveda are the people who have dedicated themselves to it, but when a patient comes, often say let us start with allopathic medicine for the first three days and then move to Ayurveda. Ayurveda doctors need to be 100 per cent committed it Ayurveda,” Modi said in his address. Crosspathy is not allowed as a per a Supreme Court order, but that does not stop Ayurveda practitioners from prescribing allopathic medicines.

The PM emphasized the point that the two are not competing streams of science because one has to do with prevention and the other with cure, but there is a need for Ayurveda to be spoken about in a language that the world understands. “Medical journals should dedicate 10- 20 per cent of their space to Ayurveda,” he added.

He cited the example of the global popularity of Yoga to assert that it is possible for Ayurveda too to attain such heights, but the precondition is that people who work on it should first believe it themselves.
