The Precious Heritage of the People’s Science is Going to Extinction

The human communities had been facing challenges since the unknown time of human history.  In the meanwhile, they had been responding with critical analyses, mature responses, and solid philosophies. Though taking a longer time period (evolution) the results were always easy to understand, interesting to implement and accurate to target the challenge. The people’s science is a great art which is proved by the time and generations.

Lets’ take the health science (people’s health science) as an example. It was absolutely based on the concepts of symbiosis, wellness of all, hot & cold (nature of the product), personal nature, prevailing environments, habitats and landscape (weather, water, air etc) and a long list of things. The Philosophy of Symbiosis and Gut’s Role in Natural Health

The techniques of the people’s science are fortified with the following merits.

  • Free of side effects
  • Symbiotic in nature
  • Local solution (available local)
  • Locally manageable
  • Cheaper in prices (usually free available)
  • No intellectual and proprietary rights
  • No corporate business is involved
  • No problem to the environment.

As a conclusion of the talk, I would expect, the scientists, philosophers, thinkers, policymakers, educationist, and politicians to consider this precious part of science. The modern era is forcing this precious heritage of people’s science towards extinction. It is the utmost need of time to give proper place to people’s science so that the modern ideas go hand in hand with the proven science of the communities.
