The Ministry of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy,
Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (abbreviated as AYUSH) has begun
documentation of Ayurvedic medicinal knowledge — an ancient
indigenous Indian system of medicine — from ‘Vaidyas’ (Ayurvedic
practitioners).

More than 200 Vaidyas from Kerala have recorded their knowledge with
the Union Ministry until now, Shripad Naik, Union Minister of State
for AYUSH, told a group of media persons on Saturday night.

He said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government has focused
on indigenous system of medicines and have given priority to AYUSH
Ministry.

“There are hundreds of Vaidyas across the country.
They are neither
registered under any department nor they pass their knowledge to
next generation.
