By TRN Online, Kathmandu, Sept.26: Minister of Health and Population (MoHP) Mohan Bahadur Basnet has said that there is a need to make a solid work plan for the development of Ayurveda.
In an inauguration program of basic training and work plan related to Panchakarma medicine, organized by the National Ayurveda Research & Training Centre, at Kirtipur, on Tuesday, Minister Basnet said that rather than flickering talk, there is a need for a strong plan to develop Ayurveda.
He said, "Bring a strong work plan to promote Ayurveda. If so, I will give my full support."
Saying that the stride made on Ayurveda will benefit denizens, Minister Basnet, stressed that Ayurveda which holds no other side effect should be made accessible to all.
"Ayurveda medicines are sold at low prices in foreign countries, and when they are used in making medicines, we have to buy from them pricey. Therefore, there is a need for a strong work plan from the experts to change its course." He said.
Dr Ram Adhar Yadav, Director of the National Ayurveda Research & Training Centre, at Kirtipur, said that 'Panchakarma' medicine is taken as a therapy without intake of medicine and it can cure many pain-related diseases.
While informing about the services provided by National Ayurveda Research & Training Centre, at Kirtipur, Director Yadav said that the Centre is providing treatment, research, and training for the growth of Ayurveda.
