India is a land of so many different cultures and traditions. And of course, that is the same for health systems too. Before the arrival of allopathy, each region predominantly had its medical and health practices. And today, they are known to us as local and crude practices, which do not have scientific backing. In that sense, here in Hyderabad, we find so many bonesetters with their centres, promising people a quick, safe and natural cure for bone-related injuries.
This episode of The Suno India Show is a feature about bonesetters, which is one of the many folk medical systems, and how they are being looked at by the people and the government.
