Move to allow Ayurveda docs in military hospitals hailed

The decision of the Indian armed forces to throw open the doors of top military hospitals to doctors specialising in Ayurveda and other alternative systems of medicine has brought joy to the practitioners.

City-based AyurVAID Hospitals had launched an online campaign four years ago. It received the support of more than 10,000 people via change.org.

“We urge the Armed Forces Medical Services not to be patronising and restrict access of these specialists only to terminally ill patients. We take note with concern the approach of AFMS that specialists of Ayurveda will be provided access to only terminally ill patients,” said AyurVAID Hospitals CEO Rajiv Vasudevan.
