The Centre includes Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy,  biofeedback, , Homeopathy, Yunani, Siddha and diet-based therapies, in addition to  a range of other practices. It is frequently grouped with complementary medicine, which generally refers to the same interventions when used in conjunction with mainstream techniques, under the umbrella term complementary and alternative medicine, or CAM. A 1998 systematic review of studies assessing its prevalence in 13 countries concluded that about 31% of cancer patients use some form of complementary and alternative medicine. Alternative medicine varies from country to country; Dr. Edzard Ernst believes that in Austria and Germany CAM is mainly in the hands of physicians, although some estimates suggest that half of CAM is administered by physicians in the US. In Germany, herbs are tightly regulated, with half prescribed by doctors and covered by health insurance based on their Commission E legislation. The prime objective of the Center is to revive the golden era of Indian Medical systems, or say, Vedic Medical Science covering physical, mental and spiritual problems as compared to treatment of only physical body under the modern medical science.  It provides all the services of effective complementary therapies to general masses suffering from acute or chronic diseases like asthma, arthritis,   backache, constipation, diabetes, hypertension, headache, gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, women’s problems etc. Apart from this, the Center provides therapeutic training to the students as a part of their academic course to enhance their practical knowledge and competency.

Significance of CAM

  • Prevention is key to good health. Taking steps to better your health before you get sick is the best way to keep yourself healthy.
  • Your body has the ability to heal itself. Alternative medicine practitioners see themselves as facilitators. To them, your body does the healing work, and treatment encourages your natural healing processes.
  • Learning and healing go hand in hand. Alternative medicine practitioners see themselves as teachers and mentors who offer guidance. To the practitioner, you’re the one who does the healing.
  • Holistic care. The focus is on treating you as a whole person — recognizing that physical health, mental well-being, relationships and spiritual needs are interconnected and play a part in your overall health.
