    In what could be a medical bonanza for Andhra Pradesh, the ministry of Ayush (Indian medicine) has sanctioned two separate hospitals for Ayurveda and Unani to Ongole. District collector Sujatha Sharma formally opened the two 10-bed hospitals on the premises of the old Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) here on Tuesday.

    Expert medical professionals in both Ayurveda and Unani have been appointed. The collector appealed to people to make use of the facility, saying Indian medicine has the capability to cure even chronic diseases. “Experts suggest that Ayurveda and Unani have the best medicines for chronic ailments like back pain, paralysis, joint pains and spinal cord disorders.
