Manila, Philippines – Magbibigay ang Department of Health (DOH) – Calabarzon ng mga pagsasanay para sa acupuncture, ventosa at moxibustion sa mga piling health workers sa nasabing rehiyon.
Ayon sa regional office, ang aktibidad na ito ay naglalayong i-promote ang ligtas na paggamit ng traditional medicine.
“This training will be the first step towards achieving our goal of integrating traditional and complementary health care into the primary health care delivery system at the same time upholding our country’s traditional medicine heritage,” ani Regional Director Eduardo Janairo.
“We have seen the increase of traditional medicine in recent years and today people are going back to basics – using herbal supplements to stay fit and healthy. The demand continues to rise and it is important to be selective of what traditional method or approach to use – safety must be the primary consideration,” dagdag pa nito.
Sinabi rin ni Janairo na ang tradisyunal at alternatibong healthcare ay nauuso na para sa paggamot ng ilang sakit.
“Although they are getting popular in the medical and wellness sector, we still have to make sure that these procedures are properly applied and practiced by health professionals with the utmost safety to avoid any incident,” paalala naman ng regional director.
Ipinahayag rin ni Janairo na may plano silang maglabas ng iba pang uri ng alternative medicine system para sa susunod pang henerasyon.
“We will also introduce other complementary and alternative system of medicine such as the Ayurveda, Naturopathy and Homeopathy,” ani Janairo. Remate News Team
