Bengaluru, March 29: Yoga has been deemed as an alternative cure for the world's deadliest disease-Cancer. However, the absolute cure is still a year away. Union minister of AYUSH Shripad Naik said that Yoga has the capacity to arrest the disease and reduce exposure to chemotherapy.
Speaking at the AYUSH Expo organised by the central ministry near Panaji, Naik said that it is in the process of vetting documentation submitted by Bengaluru-based deemed yoga university, which has claimed to have cured patients suffering from the disease.
Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana, a deemed university headed by Dr H R Nagendra, who was earlier a mechanical engineer with NASA and later had a stint at Harvard University.
Naik told reporters,"SVYASA University in Bengaluru has found a yoga technique for prevention and cure of cancer. We have collected all documentation and the process is going on."
On asking how much time will it take for the AYUSH ministry to vet the documentation, Naik said,"I think it will take about a year. The documentation should be perfect."
