Pseudo scientific threat to health care

All diseases, their causes and treatment are one. Except for traumatic and environmental conditions, the cause of all diseases is one i.e. accumulation of morbid matter in the body. The treatment of all diseases is elimination of morbid matter from the body.

Acute diseases are self-healing efforts of the body. Hence, they are our friends, not the enemy. Chronic diseases are outcome of wrong treatment and suppression of the acute diseases.
Nature is the greatest healer. The human body itself has the healing power to prevent itself from disease and regain health if unhealthy.
In Nature Cure it is not the disease but the entire body of the patient which is caused and is renewed.

In Nature Cure the suppressed diseases are brought to surface and are removed permanently.
Naturopathy treats all the aspects like physical, mental, social and spiritual at the same time.
Naturopathy treats the body as a whole.
According to Naturopathy, “Food is only the Medicine”, no external medications are used.
Performing prayer according to one’s spiritual faith is an important part of treatment (According to Gandhiji “Rama Nama is the best Natural Treatment.)


The above quote is not from a woo woo pseudo science  website. It is from a website of Indian government department for alternative medicine called Ayush. Ayush includes Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Sidha , Homeopathy and Naturopathy.


As per this website acute diseases are our friends , just self healing efforts of the body. But that friend in the form of acute diarrheal disease kills half a million Indian children every year !

Chronic diseases like Diabetes and Hypertension caused by wrong treatment ?

Food should be the only medicine for millions suffering from tuberculosis and malaria ?

Chanting of name of Hindu god Ram an important part of treatment ?

To know the extent of the problem see below the newspaper ad of Ayush ministry on prevention of Dengue. Using public money people are made to falsely believe that alternative system remedies can really prevent Dengue fever.


There are now hundreds of government run medical schools teaching pseudo science. Thousands of Ayush practitioners are coming out from these institutions every year.

Government sponsored propagation of pseudo sciences is making many people shy away from scientific medicine. Patients reach scientific medicine facilities late after trying out all components of Ayush. Many of the alternative medicine practitioners are also involved in spreading irrational fears about scientific medicine and vaccines.

India’s health statistics are far from satisfactory compared even to its smaller and less powerful neighbors like Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Wasting valuable resources on pseudo science is not helping to improve it in any way.

    This is just so appalling. I feel so bad for the people who are duped by this. I also feel bad for the actual doctors who have patients come in too late to save.

    I look at India today and think this is where the US will be if the theocrats and corporatists on the right win the next election. Ted Cruz is our Modi.
