“The state government is mulling to start a department of Panchgavya therapy in Ayurveda colleges and universities of the state,” GDDB chairman Vallabh Kathiriya told reporters here.
Panchgavya therapy is an alternative treatment, in which medicines made of cow milk, curd, ghee, cow urine and cow dung are used for treating people.
The panchgavya therapy increases immunity and prevents occurrence of diseases, Kathiriya said adding that it is a part of ayurveda science.
A state—level conference on panchgavya therapy will be held on Sunday at Chharodi on the outskirts of the city, which will be inaugurated by Minister of State for Health Parbat Patel.
“The main aim of this conference is to tell people about the alternative treatment, which is low—cost,” he said.
Research papers will be presented in the conference, which is expected to be attended by ayurveda doctors, research scholars, cowshed owners, experts and other delegates.
While there is one Ayurveda University at Jamnagar in Gujarat, the number of Ayurveda colleges in the state is ten.
