What Is Ayuved?
Much before allopathy and homeopathy came an ancient Indian science called Ayurved that relied entirely on nature’s bounty for its cures. Ayurved is the traditional, time-tested science of healing with herbs, fruits and minerals that are plentifully available in nature . It is one of the oldest scientific medical systems in the world.
How Is Ayurved Different From Allopathic/Modern Medicines?
Modern medicine treats the symptoms in the short term, rather than addressing the root cause of a patient’s suffering. Ayurved on the other hand, makes its special contributions by addressing the uniqueness of each patient and by helping each body to heal from the root cause of the ailment. Thus, Ayurved looks at a longer term solution to patient suffering in comparison with modern medicine.
Are Ayurvedic Medicines Used For Chronic Ailments Only?
A large number of people look towards allopathy for a cure to an ailment. When the results are negative, they turn to Ayurved. By this time the disease becomes chronic. Therefore there is a misconception that Ayurvedic drugs cannot be used for minor ailments like cold, cough, fever, acidity, loose motions and other aches and pains.
