Course on Health Promotion Through Ayurveda & Yoga ( 2nd Batch) - INAUGURATE

“Traditional Indian systems of medicine are holistic as they help us in management of mind and body”, said Mrs. S. Jalaja, Secretary, Deptt. of Ayush, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, GoI. In her inaugural speech she mentioned that older systems of medication, like Chinese, Arabic and Indian, had gone into hibernation after the Greeks developed an allopathic system. Though the allopathic system has its own merits and provides immediate relief the Ayurvedic and Yogic systems develop all round immunity, improve well being of human beings.
