Aim is to exploit potential of ayurvedic treatments and standardise it
Many Indians resort to alternative therapies and report positive outcomes.The evidence however is elusive as many practitioners do not share the ingredients they use for the drugs. The aim of AIIMS researchers is to validate the medicines prescribed as alternative therapy. This will not only exploit the potential of this therapy but will also help standardise it. Allopathic treatments have often been associated with side effects whereas, alternative treatments are deemed as safer.

Will also look into cannabis’s efficiency in cancer treatment
Many alternative therapy practitioners give herbo-minerals (bhashm) for cancer treatment. Studies suggest that it is beneficial but the quantity is not known. Thus, a study about the ingredients composition will also be made. The AIIMS project will also take a look at cannabis’s efficiency in maintaining the quality of life in cancer patients.
