Medical Courses & Colleges
Alternative therapies or medicines are referring to a broad group of natural and spiritual healing methods that are different than the conventional western medical practices and medicines. Many of these healing methods have been used for centuries in many different cultures and countries all over the globe.
The systems of alternative medicines, mainly comprising the AYUSH streams (Ayurveda, Unani, Yoga, Naturopathy, Siddha, and Homeopathy), are rapid gaining pace and popularity in India. The central government of India, in the year of 2018, the Union Budget, increased the allocation to the AYUSH Ministry, purposed with developing education and research in these areas of medicine, by more than 13 per cent to Rs 1,626.37 Cr. Backed by strong government support there is a steady increase in graduate and postgraduate institutes for the study of AYUSH medicine. Central regulatory councils are also being established to create infrastructure and put in place a strong regulatory framework.
