The contrast between Ayurveda and modern medicine has been prevalent for centuries. Western medications under Allopathy primarily focus on the symptoms of a disease and seek to cure its symptoms. This may result in a misbalance of elements in the body caused due to powerful allopathic drugs that may or may not cause side effects. Allopathic treatment mostly focuses on symptom management that results in a uni-dimensional cure.
Ayurveda, an ancient Indian system of medicine, provides a comprehensive cure to all kinds of patients for diseases that are generally difficult to treat by Western medicine doctors. Ayurveda offers a holistic and complete system of medicine and wellness. With several modern lifestyle diseases becoming prevalent in society, Ayurveda gives cures for many conditions like hair fall, Asthma, Liver Cirrhosis, Ageing, etc., by treating the root cause of the disease.
