I read an article today in the IndiaPost online that describes the rise of natural medicine in the country. Basically many people are turning to traditional Ayurvedic, homeopathic and naturopathic medicine to treat a wide range of illnesses. So far, so same as here.
But what struck me about this piece was just how differently another country’s press approached the story. None of the normal panning of natural medicine we’re becoming so used to seeing in our media, just an honest reporting of the statistics and a quote saying that there is no option but allopathic medicine for emergency, surgery and cardiac cases (quite right).
How refreshing. I wish Western journalists would take a leaf out of their book and report the uptake of natural medicine as the positive it is and in a less sensational manner. Have a read: http://www.indiapost.com/health-science/4708-Ayurveda-Homeopathy-witness-impressive-growth.html
