Medical Bill introduced in Lok Sabha


SHRUTY SHUBHANGI ( Convener member)

All medical person in India looking very eagerly about this bill and its future i.e.; how it will affect the medical system?                       

 First of all, I would like to give the main features of the bill:

Doctors of Ayurveda and Homoeopath may be allowed to practice Allopathy after clearing a bridge course.

Its clause 49 having the directions to call for a joint sitting of National Medical Commission including CCH & CCIM at least once in a year for their co-ordination.

It has proposed specific educational program for developing bridge across the various system of medicine. I t can be done with the approval of all members present in the joint sitting.

The commission will be governed by a chairman nominated by government and the members and the board members will be selected by a search committee under the cabinate secretory.

Although this bill is not passed yet and it is being opposed by MCI but if the bill is passed what will be the impact on medical system?

              As I am an Ayush student so according to me this bill will be very dangerous for Homoeopathy. It will damage the image of Homoeopathy because the qualified doctors from Ayush will go for the bridge course for the authority of prescribing Allopathic medicine.       

              But this will be very beneficial for suffering people especially in remote and tribal areas where Allopathic doctors dislike going. These areas are captured by the so called quack doctors. They do not know about anatomy and physiology and pathology of diseases. They only know the name of some medicines with superficial knowledge of prescription. They only think to relief the patient and earn profit. They don’t know the side effects of the medicines prescribed by them. They also don’t have the knowledge of doses of the medicine.

              This bill will help the persons living in the remote and tribal areas to get a good medical privilege and the availability of the doctors with them.  




Needle joints pain out, painlessly

Dr. S. C. Srivasatava

Joints in our body help us movement and lead a normal life. If joints of human being become painful the life becomes miserable. For effective treatment and instant relief we take strong analgesic or anti- inflammatory medicines. Some time doctors use steroids for fast relief. But these treatments are harmful. It may cause some fatal diseases and its suppression causes some serious diseases, like heart ailment.

Selection of correct treatment should be based on nature, severity, deft and causes of disease together with age and sex. We have to decide and choose a particular treatment programme for a particular patient. Here we will discuss the best way of treatment that can give harmless relief to the patient, curtailing treatment time. As far as cure is concerned, it is only possible if the root cause of the disease is removed and repair of damaged cell is possible.

For the correct selection of effective way of treatment, we have to classify the patient of joints pain as follows:

1. imbalanced energy in the body;

2. malnutrition;

3. intestinal deficiency;

4.habit of taking extra protein in the diet;

5. getting overweight;

6. traumatic causes;

7. infections;

8 strained and

9: dry and deformed joints.

At times our body energy becomes imbalanced. Energy level of both sides becomes dissimilar. One side becomes more charged than the other side. At this stage coordination between the two sides becomes essential. Otherwise, our body becomes like a bullock cart where one ox is bigger and stronger than the other. Under this circumstance smooth movement of the cart becomes impossible. The left side of human body possesses negative energy. If a patient suffering from any disease is found to be confirmed negative charged, following symptoms should be there:

A. the problems are aggravated by the cold and they get reduced with hot fomentation;

B. patients acquire negative thinking;
C. patient usually suffer from low blood pressure and constipation;

D. obesity may occur; and E. they may become lazy and dull. The balancing of the body will cure all these problems. The same process is adopted to cure ‘excess positive’ on the right side.


Balanced diet is required for a good health, i. e. normal construction and functioning of the body. Joints are responsible for our movement. It also requires adequate amount of nutrients containing vitamins and minerals.

Intestinal deficiency: With sluggish intestine cells the body can not receive adequate nutrients even if the diet is balanced. A person with chronic history of intestinal deficiency may suffer from bone and joint diseases.

Extra protein: Till the teen age proteins are abundantly required because process of body building is going on. After this age body building process stops. Then less amount of protein is required just to repair damaged cell in the day to day life. Therefore any extra intake of protein is converted into uric acid that is responsible for producing pain in the joints. We can overcome the problem by curtailing the intake of protein in the diet. Non-vegetarian foods, milk and pulses possess extra proteins.

Over weight: The joints of the lower limb have to bear the whole body weight. If the weight is excess, it causes extra pressure on the joints. Ultimately, anatomy and physiology of the joints of the lower limbs, especially knee joints, get disturbed and abnormal symptoms start appearing. To be free from this problem we have to cut down extra fats from our diet.

Traumatic causes: Trauma on the joints causes deformities. This causes acute or chronic problems in the joints. Many joints diseases are with traumatic history. At times trauma produces damaged or dead cell, leading to bacterial or viral infections. This weakens the joints and weak joints can not perform normal functions. If we try to work hard with weak joints it produces abnormal symptoms, like pain, heat and cracking sound, etc. The damaged cells can be removed and repaired to some extent, depending on age and resistance power with the medicinal help. Beyond this only surgery can help.

Infections: At times infections in cells and tissues go to bones and joints. This causes deformities. Due to infections decaying process starts and all joints are disturbed and frozen.

Strained muscles: Occasionally due to hard work muscles of the bone get strained. This strained muscle leads to disturbance in the joints and normal functioning is affected. But symptoms appear in due course.

Dryness of joints: Fluids in joints get lost under certain unavoidable situations and during movement frictions start. Fluids in the joints work as a greasing material which usually prevents the frictions. In absence of greasing materials turmoil starts during movement.

Exposure in joints: Exposure to extreme heat, cold and dampness causes disturbance in the joints and abnormal impact on their every cell.


Joints problems become miserable if proper care is not taken. Acupuncture is the best way of treatment for the joint complaints. Acupuncture way of treatment has a power to produce the following effects:

1. It can strengthen the nerve power of the area;

2. It can repair the damaged cells;

3 damaged cells can be replaced with healthy cells and

4. it has the power to produce increased blood supply.

Acupuncture can produce tremendous results in the treatment of the joints complaints. In acupuncture treatment many small, thin and painless needles are pricked on the surface of human body. ‘Points’ are to be selected according to the nature and complaints of the patient. Acupuncture believes that every living cell requires life energy, which is known as ‘Qi’ in Chinese language. Like other requirement, i. e. oxygen and nutrients, Qi is essential for every cell. The ‘Qi’ supplies life force to the cells. The stoppage causes death of cells. Excess and deficient supply of life force makes the cells diseased. Acupuncture is a way of treatment that creates an atmosphere ensuring adequate supply of life force to the cells. It is a painless but effective treatment to joints pain of any nature.
