Need for an integrated approach to medicine

Presenting the 11th MV Arunachalam Endowment Oration, Dr Michael Evans , an internationally acclaimed anthroposophic specialist said that anthroposophic medicine can bring down healthcare cost. He lamented that modern science has some deeply held beliefs that limit it from exploring the reality beyond things that are measurable.

Anthroposophic medicines include ointments, tablets and injections made of plants and minerals, rhythmical massage,  mindfulness and art therapy. The role of an anthroposophic doctor is to be a counsellor and help patients understand the wide range of medical options and make their own choices wisely, he observed. M V Murugappan, Trustee, Vellayan Chettiar Trust, gave the presidential address, while A Vellayan, Executive Chairman, Murugappa Group, and Trustee, Vellayan Chettiar Trust, welcomed the gathering.
