The Health Minister called upon all the participants to become role models and help the state in reviving this good old ancient Indian medical system, which could help to realise the dream of CM Bhagwant Singh Mann ji to make the people of Punjab hale and healthy. He asked them to voluntarily hold yoga sessions near their homes and sensitise people about the Ayurveda.
He said that the Punjab Government has upgraded 158 Ayush Health and Wellness Centres and herbal gardens are being established at all these centres so that people can opt for natural medicines like herbs to cure themselves from mild diseases, instead of relying on allopathy medicines.
