Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh has said that a proper food regime prescribed for a diabetic patient can also be prescribed for healthy people so that they do not catch the disease. He said COVID has prompted people to discover new norms in adversity and underlined the importance of Indian Traditional Medicine System.
Speaking at the Webinar organized on the eve of World Diabetes Week yesterday, Dr Jitendra Singh said that ever since Narendra Modi took over as Prime Minister, he has brought to the centre stage the virtues of indigenous system of medical management. He said, it was Mr Modi, who brought a unanimous resolution in the United Nations to observe International Day of Yoga, as a result of which Yoga has reached virtually every household across the world. He also added that it was Prime Minister Modi again, who created a separate Ministry of AYUSH, considering the importance of indigenous medical management system, besides promoting Holistic Medicine.
Dr Singh said, corona has also given the physicians a cue to emphasize on the non-pharmacological methods of management including hygiene which had somehow lost due importance in recent years. He noted, even after the COVID pandemic is over, the discipline of physical distancing and avoiding droplet infection will act as safeguard against many other infections as well.
