Ujjain : Ayush Gram, a project commenced by the Government of India and National Ayush Mission (NAM) to encourage traditional medical practices like Ayurveda, yoga and naturopathy, was launched in the presence of chief guest, energy minister Paras Jain at Unhel square on Saturday.
District level committees will be formed under the Ayush Gram project, said Jain. An autonomous Ayush college will be opened, which will coordinate with the divisional and district Ayush officers, to execute the project in select villages. Initially, 4 villages have been selected at every legislative seat. In Ujjain, Karohan, Mojamkhedi, Jahangirpur and Piploda Dwarikadhish have been selected under the project.
The project will ensure that every family has a health card, which will keep record of all health issues of family members. This health record will form the basis of the upcoming health policy of that particular village.
Jain said, “Ayurvedic treatment takes time, but ensures complete eradication of disease without any side effect”. MLA Mohan Yadav, who was also present said the Government has been making efforts to encourage ayurveda and people were being increasingly drawn towards it.” Earlier, guests offered flower garlands and lit a lamp before the portrait of Lord Dhanwantri.
