Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that the AYUSH Ministry has coded the terminology related to disease and treatment in Ayurveda, Unani and Siddha medicine and with the help of this, now all doctors will write the same language on their prescriptions. Modi said in his monthly program ‘Mann Ki Baat’ on Sunday that there would be many people among you who get help from Ayurveda, Siddha or Unani medical system for treatment, but their patients face problems when these methods are used. Let’s go to some other doctor. In these medical systems, the same language is not used for disease names, treatments and medicines. Every doctor writes the name of the disease and methods of treatment in his own way. This sometimes makes it very difficult for other doctors to understand. A solution to this problem that has been going on for decades has now been found.
He said that he is happy to inform that the Ministry of AYUSH has classified the data and terminology related to Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani medicine, in this, the World Health Organization has also helped. Due to the efforts of both, terminology related to disease and treatment in Ayurveda, Unani and Siddha medicine has been codified. With the help of this coding, now all doctors will write the same language on their prescriptions. One advantage of this would be that if you go to another doctor with that slip, the doctor will get complete information about it from that slip only. That slip will help you in knowing your illness, treatment, what medicines you have been taking, for how long the treatment has been going on, what things you are allergic to, all this. Another benefit of this will be for those people who are involved in research work. Scientists from other countries will also get complete information about the disease, medicines and its effects.
He said that when he talks about AYUSH system of medicine, the picture of Yanung Jamoh Lago comes before his eyes. Suyanung hails from Arunachal Pradesh and is a herbal medicinal expert. He has done a lot of work to revive the traditional medical system of the Adi tribe. This time he has also been given the Padma Award for this contribution. Similarly, this time Hemchand Manjhi of Chhattisgarh has also received the Padma Award. Vaidyaraj Hemchand Manjhi also treats people with the help of AYUSH system of medicine. People like Suyanung and Hemchand ji have a big role in preserving the treasure of Ayurveda and herbal medicine hidden in our country.
