Madhavbaug Reaffirms Commitment to PM Modi's Vision to Revive Ayurveda

MUMBAI, November 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

A Need For Revising The Ayurveda Course Syllabus   

India's PM Narendra Modi mentioned at the inauguration event on Ayurveda Day that no country can progress until its people acknowledge and respect its heritage, take pride in its history and ancient practices. Mr Modi also spoke about ancient Ayurvedic practices and the need to revive and modernize this knowledge. The BAMS (Bachelor Of Ayurveda, Medicine, and Surgery) course needs to be revised to integrate modern diagnostic techniques with knowledge of ancient ayurvedic remedies. Moreover, BAMS doctors should be encouraged to acquire additional certification and use modern diagnostic techniques. As Mr Modi indicated, Ayurveda is an umbrella comprising of subjects like social health, public health, and environmental health - and there is a need for integration of all these in the coursework.

The coursework of Madhavbaug's Institute of Preventive Cardiology provided to BAMS doctors is an example of such advanced training through additional certification. This certification allows BAMS doctors to use ayurvedic protocols along with modern diagnostic tools. This holistic approach benefits patients and also increases the doctors' exposure to modern diagnostic tools.

Lack of standardization through a regulatory body for ayurveda: The lack of standardization is primarily because the information in ancient ayurvedic texts are in a crude form or incomplete. Furthermore, randomized clinical trials are required before the results are accepted by the scientific community. Madhavbaug's research focuses on the efficacy of ayurvedic formulations for heart disease and has published 'Effect of heart failure reversal treatment as add-on therapy in patients with chronic heart failure: A randomized, open-label study' in the Indian Heart Journal.

More in Brief About the Clinical Trial as a Part Of Madhavbaug's Ayurvedic Research   

Madhavbaug's research has focused on combining Ayurvedic procedures such as panchakarma with standard chronic heart failure treatment. A study, that they conducted on the scope of Ayurvedic procedures like panchakarma for heart disease management recently appeared in the Indian Heart Journal. Madhavbaug's trademarked HFRT procedure (Heart Failure Reversal Therapy) includes Ayurvedic practices that improve exercise tolerance and aerobic capacity, thereby raising quality of life.

HFRT promotes an enhancement of VO2peak (peak oxygen uptake) by 45.34% - this is of particular significance as an increase in VO2peak of just 1-unit is associated with a 15% reduction in the risk of fatality. This safe and non-invasive approach to coronary heart disease management dramatically improves patient outlook and is already being provided to heart patients at Madhavbaug facilities across the country.

Age Old Science Will Now Flourish for a Better Life   

As Mr Modi pointed out, 'the integration of modern science and Ayurveda is now one of the top 4 priorities of the government'. This has seen an independent government body that has formulated National Health Policy which includes (rather than ignores) Ayurveda in the public health services.

The government aims to have a minimum of one ayurvedic hospital in every district in India. This news is likely to spread awareness of real benefits of Ayurveda across the country, as well as encourage ayurvedic physicians to delve deeper into ayurvedic knowledge and serve patients better.
