Ayurvedic doctors shouldn’t prescribe western medications Featured

Minister Rajitha Senaratne wants Ayurvedic doctors to immediately stop prescribing western medications.

He made the request at the handover of 107 Ayurvedic doctor appointment letters at the Bandaranaike medical research institute in Nawinna.

The minister said he wanted to develop indigenous medicine and that he was undertaking the task with a global mentality.

Senaratne said he would visit North Korea early next year to study the indigenous medicine system of that country.
