About : 

  • AYUSH systems of healthcare form the foundation of India’s Medical Heritage. These systems are not merely sciences of disease and drug, but have their conceptual spheres touching every aspect of life. Path-finding visionaries have appeared in each of the different streams of AYUSH systems at different times in history and made valuable contributions to the growth and development of respective practices.
  • Department of Posts is bringing out Commemorative Postage Stamps on 12 such Master Healers from different streams of AYUSH systems.
    • Dinshaw Mehta: A close confidante of and personal physician to Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Dinshaw Mehta was deeply committed to natural and holistic methods of cure. He helped Mahatma Gandhi establish the Nature Cure Clinic and Sanatorium at Pune, which is presently the National Institute of Naturopathy. Dr. Dinshaw carried out scientific studies in Naturopathy, especially on fasting. He is a true path-finder for Naturopathy in India.
