Here is How You Can Get Funding to Research an Ayurvedic Cure for COVID-19
Ayurveda is the foundation of medicine. Known by several names across different civilization (Unani, Siddha and even homeopathy), it’s Ayurveda that made modern medicine possible.
It gave an idea of chemicals involved in medicine and the modern health industry found a way to concentrate and commercialize them. However it has now become evident that modern medicine is nowhere near finding a cure for this pandemic. And that’s why, we are once again looking into the past towards Ayurveda to search if the answer to coronavirus lies with nature, and the government is here to help.
What is AYUSH?
Ayush is the result of Ayushman Bharat Yojana, a government initiative to mainstream Ayurvedic medicine once again. India once had a bounty of life-lengthening and disease-removing cures courtesy of this discipline and through AYUSH it’s attempting to regain that bounty. Under this scheme, several vulnerable and poverty-stricken get about INR 5 LAKH per year for treatment in secondary and tertiary care hospitalization.
The secondary and tertiary care health units we talk about are the Ayurvedic and homeopathic medication units, and before to get the government funding for the Ayurvedic cure, you need to get AYUSH license.
How to get Ayush License?
Ayush license is a car equivalent of a driving license where the car is your Ayurvedic medicine manufacturing company. The process of acquiring the said license is as follows:
- First you go to the Ayush site related to your particular state
- Then, you file the form and while doing so, upload and attach the following documents:
- Your personal details
- Copy of manufacturing license
- List of products that you are planning to produce
- Master file of your website
- Manufacturing formula that you are implementing
- Analysis method for your products
- List of products that have been approved by CoPP
- Stability study evaluation
- List of technical staff
- Diagrams of the machinery and layout of the plant
- Export data of the last two years
- Certificates of analysis
- Undertaking that no non-herbal metals or minerals are present in your product
- Undertaking that your business is compliant to the rules and regulation set by the people.
- Now, apply for GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) and CoPP is required.
- Go to the Directorate of Ayush and submit the application.
None of the above steps are possible if you don’t register your business. by registering your business and giving your Ayurvedic trade a legal entity, you can go through the above steps a lot easier.
