Famed natural medicine practitioner, Mohanan Vaidyar who has been under attack by the Kerala Health Department, has found support from some unexpected corners. Entrepreneur, Sohan Roy and bestselling author, Praveen P. Gopinath have come out in staunch support of Mohanan Vaidyar’s treatment methods.
For those of you who are not acquainted with the name, Mohanan Vaidyar lays no claims to being a doctor or a medic. He refers to himself as a guide who lives in accordance with nature and claims that traditional, easily available medicinal plants are the most effective in warding off and curing many illnesses that are rampant in our State. He has been relentless in his pursuit to educate the general public about the steadily increasing use of pesticides in our vegetables and the toxic chemicals in our everyday beauty products, including soaps and detergents. He has also bluntly criticized modern medicine, including Allopathy and Ayurveda as having an unholy unhealthy mutually beneficial relationship with the pharmaceutical industry and monopolizing the healthcare market. Mohanan Vaidyar’s incessant warnings against the use of chemotherapy, as weakening a cancer patient further has now been validated by a new report by a team of US researchers. They have suggested that chemotherapy may be back firing by helping spread cancer resulting in more aggressive types of diseases or organ failures in the long run.
Sohan Roy, founder Chairman and CEO of Aries Group of companies and director of the Hollywood movie DAM999 has updated his Facebook page with flyers stating, ‘Save Naturopathy Ayurveda’ in support of Mohanan Vaidyar and traditional ayurvedic remedies. He has appealed to his followers to ‘Stand against the professional massacre of Mohanan Vaidyar by Allopathy practitioners. Don’t let Ayurveda die.’
