I, Janamejayan on behalf of Acupuncturists' Forum Of India(AFOI) one of the invitee of the high level meeting of Inter Departmental Committee for identifying new system of medicine/ therapy to consider proposals seeking recognition of Acupuncture as a system of medicine, want to draw your kind attention towards the above mentioned subject.
First of all, I convey our heartiest regards to DHR under Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Govt.of India for taking decision to recommend the status of Acupuncture as an independent system of Medicine. That will definitely help our government to provide better and economical therapy to our nation.
Secondly we pray and firmly believe that Ministry will take the right judgement, which is long awaited, by giving independent status of Acupuncture under main AYUSH Ministry , but not under or attached with Naturopathy or any other pathy.
WHY ACUPUNCTURE SHOULD NOT BE CLUBBED UNDER NATUROPATHY
Acupuncture has No similarity with any existing system of medicine including Naturopathy.
Acupuncture fulfills all the criteria of a separate system of medicine.
Naturopathy is a non invasive system using only natural elements. Acupuncture is an invasive method mainly administered by the needle.
Acupuncture philosophy and aetiology is different from Naturopathy. In naturopathy, accumulation of toxins is disease whereas in acupuncture accumulation of Qi and Blood is disease. This is a very unique principle which will not be mastered in an year or in a single semester paper.
For your kind information, we already presented and submitted to DHR, Government of India, the 5 year syllabus on Acupuncture.
I on behalf of more than one lakh pure Acupuncture therapist request you to please consider our expectation that Acupuncture should be recognised as Separate system of Medicine.
Eagerly waiting for your kind consideration at the earliest.
President - AFOI.
