ayurvedaallopathyAyurveda is science that has been discovered years ago. It is seen as a traditional way to cure disease. It is considered highly holistic due to its preventive and curative qualities. However, on the other hand Allopathy has been found recently.

There are various benefits of Ayurvedic medicines over allopathic treatment and some of them are stated below:

  • Any ayurvedic medicine effectively treats disease and helps permanently heal a person. It also helps improve overall health. However, on the other hand, Allopathic treatment does not ensure permanent cure of the disease and aims to kill and destroy all the germs, bacteria, etc. that causes sickness and to provide instant relief.

  • As ayurvedic medicines are obtained and produced from various easily available herbs and plants, they are comparatively cheaper than allopathic medicines.

  • Ayurvedic medicines are basically obtained from  natural herbs and extracts of fruits, vegetables, etc. which act as a natural drug and are harmless for our body. These medicines help cure diseases without any side effects. However, Allopathic medicines on the hand usually provide solution to a disease that may produce one side effect or other due to its synthetic preparation.

  • As Ayurvedic medicines are made of organic products, they help saving the environment and atmosphere from harmful chemicals and prove to be extremely eco friendly.

  • Allopathic medicines usually concentrate on the symptoms of the disease leaving aside the root cause. However, Ayurvedic medicine helps to cure specific system of body by focusing on root cause of the problem which further helps maintain a healthy life in long run.

  • When compared with allopathic treatment, Ayurvedic medicines are usually considered more effective for curing chronic illness. For example, diseases related to our liver. It is considered that ayurvedic medicines can rejuvenate liver due to its effective ingredients.

  • Ayurvedic medicines are chemical free, produced using natural ingredients. However, Allopathic medicines include chemicals as they are laboratory manufactured which actually proves to be harmful for body.

  • Ayurvedic medicines successfully cure serious ailments like piles, jaundice, etc. They are a slow healing process but ensure a permanent relief from pain.This is so as they focus on the root cause to cure affected area and other related body systems. However, Allopathy has a modern approach which offers medical treatment that is comparatively faster than ayurvedic treatment but gives only temporary solution to the disease.
