Dhanwantari is the incarnation of the Lord, as the Doctor of Doctors. Let us arouse this Master Doctor from His Sleep !.

The logic behind this is that Science is defined as a systematic study of Nature, Prakriti. Prakriti is infinitely wise in Her Wisdom. But Purusha, the Male Component of the Ultmate has full control and He, as the Lord of Prakriti, has the power to heal all diseases ( which are caused by Nature ).
