Prime Minister Narendra Modi mentioned that like Yoga, efforts would be made to tell the world the importance of Ayurveda in the traditional Indian medicine system. The first step has been taken in this episode. So far, the whole world is dependent on allopathy medicines and English medicine in treating coronavirus. But to bring Ayurveda and other alternative medicine methods to the centre point, the Modi government has decided to trial indigenous treatment people. The Ayush Ministry will do the trial. The World Health Organization (WHO) will help train experts and researchers. You may be surprised to know that 1.80 lakh people have already got their registration done for this trial.

Ayurveda Treatment For COVID-19

Ayurveda is the essence of thousands of years of Indian knowledge, in which it is described as a favourable treatment for almost all diseases and health problems. Now at a time when the whole world is facing a major epidemic and has been closed for over two months, this is the best time to examine and understand the importance of Ayurveda. Therefore, the Ministry of AYUSH will also examine Ayurvedic treatment on coronavirus patients. Trial has already started at Chaudhary Brahmaprakash Ayurved Hospital and Tibia College in Delhi. Apart from this, Banaras Hindu University has also sought permission for testing.
