India wants Ayurveda doctors to get trained in surgery

By ThinkNaturalToday Bureau

February 23, 2015: A rift has been created between the Ayurveda practitioners and modern medicine doctors in India, as the government has allowed Ayurveda doctors to get trained in surgery and prescribe certain allopathic medicines. The government wants both the systems of medicines to work together.

While the allopathic doctors believe that this move will only create ?semi-qualified? doctors, Ayurveda doctors say that the training aims to provide a general overview of modern medicine.

The Ayurveda Medical Association of India (AMAI) says that the training is part of a national policy, but the Indian Medical Association (IMA) states that there is no such policy. They also say that the move actually violates the Medical Council of India?s guidelines.

Ayurveda Medical Association of India, on the other hand say that the training is for just one month which will help make Ayurveda practitioners aware of the complications that could arise during surgery or delivery.

The doctors of allopathy say that if an Ayurveda doctor wants to practise modern medicine, he should complete MBBS, which is the basic qualification for practising modern medicine.

Ayurveda is widely practised in India. There are about 2,458 Ayurveda hospitals in India under the government’s directorate of Ayush (Ayurveda, yoga, unani, siddha and homoeopathy).
