Thoughts On Alternative Systems Of Medicine

H.E. Shri Narendra Modi ji

Hon’ble Prime Minister


"The Judicious use of Alternative Systems of Medicine is found cost effective and having lesser or no side effects. India stays in rural setup, where medicines from alternative systems can play very big role in curing the primary healthcare problems”

H.E. Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ji

Hon’ble Former Prime Minister of India,


While lauding the role of Alternative Systems of Medicines, traditional Medicines - herbs in promoting good health, Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, H.E. Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ji said: “There are many virtues in the Indian systems of medicine, which are, unfortunately, not generally well-recognized. They are inexpensive. They are effective in the cure of many ailments. They are also more or less free of harmful side effects. I know, how in my childhood, my mother used to prepare a kashay or a decoction of ordinary herbs and leaves like Tulsi whenever we had a cough or some other common ailment, and it worked. It worked not only because the formula was good, but also because it came with the mother’s love".

During a conversation with Dr. Pravin Bhatia - Purecha His Excellency Balasaheb Thackrey said,"The traditional and alternative therapie such as Naturopathy, Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Unani, Siddha, Yoga, Reiki, Acupressure, Acupunture, Massage Therapies, Chiropractic, Magneto Therapies, etc. which are natural methods of treatment, attempt to cure the diseases by simulating the self curative forces inherent in the human body and these are becoming extremely popular in the world.
