Bangalore: The Karnataka government will soon set up a yoga and naturopathy council and allot 10 per cent of the health budget in the ensuing fiscal (2012-13) to promote Indian systems of medicine comprising Ayurvedic, Yoga, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy (Ayush).

"Yoga and naturopathy are two native therapies that can prevent and cure several physical and psychosomatic ailments, especially diabetes and HIV+ cases, which have been increasing in the country of late. We hope Ayush will address these issues in the long-term," Medical Education Minister SA Ramadass said here.

Delivering the valedictory address at the five-day international conference on yoga and naturopathy, Ramadass said the state government would also set up a separate Directorate of Ayush at Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences in the city to offer paramedical diploma and certificate courses in Indian systems of medicine, reports IANS.

"In addition, a Ayush rehab unit will be set up to treat HIV+ cases with natural remedies and form an international working group to promote yoga and naturopathy," the Minister said.
