“Though there are many systems of medicine, Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani etc., modern medicine has evolved as a system of medicine adopted a system of medicine used by almost 96% of Indian population based on sustained research & constant up gradation. We welcome & propose that all our traditional systems should strive hard & make themselves more people-centered & evidence-based. Now there is a shift in the government policy; instead of promoting the systems, a new method of Mixopathy, in which systems which are mutually unrelated in principles & mode of Operandi are integrated together as one system.” Says the statement given by IMA
