Shripad Naik, the Minister of State for AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoepathy), has urged scientists and researchers to explore scope of using alternative medicines and practices for cancer care. Speaking at the symposium organised to mark the World Cancer Day with the theme ‘AYUSH for Cancer Care’ yesterday in New Delhi, Naik stated that the traditional systems of medicine are based on strong fundamental principles, time-tested experiences and holistic concepts of application, and not only advise the treatment of patients with drugs, but also have the concept of modulating the life-style, dietary regimen, seasonal regimen and behaviour to prevent and cure the diseases.
 
He stated that a scientific eye and mind is required to explore the value from the vast knowledge base of AYUSH for healthcare of cancer patients. Naik said, “We must emphasise highlighting the solutions that do exist or can be developed from AYUSH systems to help controlling the menace of cancer and which are within our reach and resources.”
 
Minister added that integration of AYUSH with conventional healthcare system is another important area to be explored to reduce the side effects of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and to prevent the recurrence and metastasis and improve the quality of life of cancer patients. Naik stated that looking at the global scenario of cancer management, it must be understood that stand alone modern medicine may not be sufficient to meet health needs of the society ailing with this dreaded disease.
