Updating Ayurveda in Modern Terms and Times - Need of the Hour

Pradeep M Muragundi1, Shripathi Acharya G2 & Anantha Naik Nagappa1

Introduction: In pre independence era, the health care system in India was catered by traditional health care systems like Ayurveda, Unani and Siddha which were evolved as a part of civilization. The practitioners were called as Vaidya, Hakeem and Siddha who made their own medicines for their patients and treated them. The British regime in India, introduced Allopathic system of health care to Indian Society. The charm of the new medicine is quick relief from symptoms and a feel good effect for the patients. The new medicines were so efficient, and hence successful, were able to displace the traditional system into obscure. The allopathic system was adopted as a major system of health care in place of traditional systems. In recent times, the price of the above folly of adaptation was realized and Government of India in an attempt to strengthen and revitalize traditional health care system has opened Department of Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (AYUSH) in November, 2003 with a view to providing focused attention to development of Education & Research in Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy systems.
