In AIIMS study, claims herbal medicine has filled wounds like allopathy

In AIIMS study, claims herbal medicine has filled wounds like allopathy


Like allopathy, herbal medicine is also effective in healing wounds. This has been revealed in the AIIMS study. The doctor says that the benefit of allopathy is the same as herbal medicine. For the first time, herbal medicine was used to heal the burn wounds. Manish Singhal, an HOD doctor at the Burn Department at AIIMS who led the trial, said that while we may be positive about natural products, doctors often avoid using it because of lack of evidence.

Dr. Manish said that the AYUSH Ministry had asked for a study on this particular type of herbal medicine. He said the drug had been used by people in the Tribal area, but it was not used medically as there was no scientific evidence. The AYUSH Ministry provided the medicine for the trial. The patient's care for the trial was done by the Burn Department of AIIMS.
Dr Singhal said that since herbal medicine was being used for the first time, it was used only on patients suffering from superficial burns. We did not want to use it on very deep wounds. We selected 60 such patients and divided them into groups of 30-30. In one group, normal allopathic medicine was given and in another group herbal medicine was given. The trial found that herbal was the same as the allopathic medicine that was effective in wound healing. Some patients saw more effects than that. That's a big deal, because we can now feel free to use it.
He said the big fear in the use of allopathic medicine is of side effects. Doctors also do not want a patient to undergo side effects. While the trial on a similar natural product is showing an advantage on the one hand, it is also cheaper if there are no side effects. "Our trial has been completed and now we have the evidence, we will submit the report of the trial to the AYUSH Ministry soon," the doctor said.
