Naturopathy and Yoga are two important sides of a coin inseparable by any means. The man who is bound by natural yogic lifestyle can embrace the most aesthetic state of physical and mental health. The goal of Naturopathic medicine is to treat the person as a whole-in body, mind and spirit. It aims to heal the root cause of an illness rather than the symptoms. BNYS (Bachelor of Naturopathy and Yogic Science) is 5 1/2 years medical degree course which combines the most efficient drugless modalities of medical system to engender the most proficient doctor of the future who gives no medicine but provides the most coherent patient care and treats the incurable with utmost ease.
The World Health Organization in its first, comprehensive study "On the Health Workforce in India" reports that only 58% of the doctors in urban areas had a medical degree & only 19% of those in rural areas had proper Qualification. The primary Health care in India hasnâ€™t got the priority it needs and the sick reach Hospitals after Faith-Healers, Quacks and other unqualified practitioners fail to cure them. In the absence of doctors, the sick make do with whoever is available, irrespective of their qualification. India doesn't have enough Hospitals, Doctors, Nurses and Health Workers.
At this juncture the decision of the Management of the Annai Group of Institutions to start Annai College of Naturopathy and Yoga Science is highly applauded as Naturopathy and Yoga can smoothly merge the preventive and curative aspect of Health care and thus decrease the number of casualities that occur due to lifestyle diseases and thus reduce the burden on the already overcrowded conventional Hospitals and clinics. Annai Group of Institutions are among the most premium Institutions which runs around 20 professional Institutions in varied fields all over Tamilnadu since two decades. I take utmost pride for being chosen to guide and lead the new venture - Annai College of Naturopathy and Yoga Science.
It gives me immense pleasure in welcoming the students to Annai College of Naturopathy and Yoga Science located in the serene city of Kumbakonam in Tanjore District. The infrastructure, dedicated faculty and the state of the art facilities make the Institution outstanding in the field of Naturopathy and Yoga. I congratulate the students for choosing the latest and most trending field of medicine, now in high demand both among students and health seekers.
