Allopathy anachronistic to human health: Joshi

Written by: Staff

Anand, Nov 19 (UNI) The 25th sammelan of Gujarat Pradesh Ayurved Sammelan (conference) was held here today under the auspices of the Delhi-based Akhil Bhartiya Ayurved Mahasammelan.

Former Union Minister Murli Manohar Joshi gave away the ''Piyush Pani'' awards to 11 ayurved physicians. The award comprised a statuette of 'Dhanvantari' and a citation.

He also honoured Rakhi Mehra of Central Research Institute of Ayurveda, New Delhi, who has written a book on ayurveda for her contributin to the traditional system. She was given a cash prize of Rs 50,000 and a citation. Similarly, Vashisht Tripathi of Uttar Pradesh was given Rs 50,000 cash prize and a citation for his contribution to the Sanskrit language.

In his address Dr Joshi alleged an allopathic doctor treats a patient only to extract money from him. ''Even before the operation he demands money. Allopathy has become an anti-human policy today,'' heclaimed, adding that in sharp contrast, ayurveda says that ''never operate a person when his pulse is weak.'' Despite claiming to be knowledgeable, these allopathic doctors do not even know the basics of human philosophy. It is this approach that is harmful to the patients, he said.

Ayurvedic shastra is based on the principle of bestowing good health and enhancing the life span without any harmful side-effect, Dr Joshi noted.

Calling upon Ayurved physicians to train students properly, he said Ayurvedic knowledge needs to be disseminated propery. There is direct co-relation between Vedas and Ayurveda. Since Ayurveda is linked to Sanskrit it is both a ''gyan(knowledge)'' and science, Dr Joshi said.
