Orientation Course in Research Methodology

There is resurgence of interest across the globe on the holistic therapies such as Ayurveda, Homoeopathy, Naturopathy & Yoga, Unani, Siddha etc. These systems are also being criticised for inadequate scientific evidences due to poor documentation. Thus there is a paradoxical situation where in on one side there is increase in demand and another side there is a concerted effort to label these age old traditional practices as unscientific.
