Traditional medicine

An Indian-US workshop on traditional medicine was enlightening and enriching.....with speakers from different traditional forms of medicine discussing (with some case studies) the impact and efficacy of traditional medicine, particularly in treatment and cure of cancer. The branches represented were ayurveda, siddha, unani, homeopathy, yoga and naturopathy.
We were there at the invite of Vaidya Balendu Prakash, who has successfully cured cancer with his herbo-mineral formulations.

There were stalls put up by different organisations; the most informative one was by The National Medicinal Plant Board, with posters listing the plants used for treating specific disorders, as well as live plants commonly used in ayurvedic medicine.

Even for us who live in the land of traditional medicine, the workshop was a revelation!
