Ayurvedic doctors have cured many patients from varying backgrounds who were deemed incurable by doctors of Western medicine. The ancient Indian medicinal practice is today popular around the world for its simple, affordable and highly effective treatments. Ayurveda being a holistic and complete system of medicine and wellness has found comprehensive cures for many conditions like Asthma, Liver Cirrhosis, hair fall and Ageing for which allopathy medicines have no cures to date.
There are a lot of advantages which Ayurveda has over Western modern medicine. Here are the best ten arguments to prove the same.
1) AYURVEDA IS A COMPREHENSIVE CURE WHICH BALANCES THE BODY WHILE WESTERN MEDICINES ALMOST ALWAYS ONLY FOCUS ON SYMPTOM MANAGEMENT OR ONE DIMENSIONAL CURE
Western medications primarily focus on the symptoms and treat and cure the symptoms without focusing on the overall balance of the body. A bacterial infection is treated with an anti-bacterial drug and no care taken to tackle the misbalance in the body caused by such powerful drugs.
An Ayurvedic Physician does not limit himself to treating a particular symptom, He goes on to examine the overall body composition of the patient, His spiritual orientation, mental conditions etc, to provide a comprehensive cure and restore balance in the human system.
2) MOST WESTERN MEDICINES ARE CHEMICALS WHILE EVERY AYURVEDIC DRUG IS A REJENUVATOR
Almost all ayurvedic medicines act as a tonic nourishing the brain which triggers restorative properties. This in turn clears the psychological, emotional and mental imbalances along with the physical nourishment. This is possible because all ingredients are natural occurring and there is not chemical intervention in the manufacturing process.
Most western medicines on the other hand are lab manufactured chemicals which are designated to act on certain aspects of the body, which might be beneficial for that purpose but will leave an imbalance elsewhere and a very few drug in western medicine can be repurposed for other use because it will be made up of just that one or two component but most ayurvedic drugs are tonic like and multi-purpose ones which always look to restore the balance of the body.
3) AYURVEDA IS A WAY OF LIFE HENCE FOCUS ON COMPATIBILITY OF FOOD
Practitioners of western medicine will hardly tell u watch out for your diet, the concepts of seasonal foods etc. are still nascent. The focus of doctors will only be on the treatment for the visible or lab detected symptoms
Compatibility of food is given a lot of importance in Ayurveda. Balancing the six tastes, balancing cooling and heating foods and balancing the Tridosas are all taken care of and hence most doctors of Ayurveda suggest a total dietary regime rather than mere prescriptions. If just prescriptions are given, the medicines will be designed in a way to complement one’s dietary regime. This is also (but not only) the reason why two patients with the same disorders get different prescriptions in Ayurveda.
4) AYURVEDA TREATS ALL DISEASES AS PYSCHO-SOMATIC DISORDER WHILE WESTERN MEDICINE SEES ALL PHYSICAL ILLNESS INDEPENDENT OF THE MENTAL STATE
Only Ayurvedic practitioners will understand the pyscho-somatic nature of all diseases, attempts will be made to find the link between the physical illness, the mental situation of the patient and his spiritual levels and the treatment will complement it.
5) AYURVEDA IS A SIMPLE AND AFFORDABLE YET EFFECTIVE CURE, WESTERN MEDICAL TREATMENTS ARE MOST OF TIME TOO HEAVY ON THE PATIENTS POCKETS
No one has ever gone below poverty by paying bills in an Ayurveda facility. There will rarely be a situation when ayurvedic doctors ask people to compulsorily visit them periodically.
Western medical system is the biggest reason why middle class families go to below poverty line in India. Most drugs are overpriced; treatments are out of the reach for an average person and most modern equipments in hospitals require regular management and patients on many occasional are forced to use them regularly. Anyways it is not about the nexus, it is about cost. The bottom-line is Ayurveda is way cheaper than western medicine.
6) AYURVEDA IS HAS A PROVEN HISTORY, IT HAS WORKED FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS
Charaka Samhita and Sushruta Samhita are more than 1500 years old and both authors claim most of their treatments to have existed long before they documented. Ayurveda is definitely one of the oldest continuously practiced medical systems which has cured humanity of illness throughout history
7) MANY AYURVEDIC MEDICINES HAVE STOOD THE TEST OF SCRUTINY FROM SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH
Many other Ayurvedic treatments are even older yet scientific research has time and again proven the efficiency of many Ayurvedic herbs. Ayurvedic Staples like Indian Gooseberry (Amla), Wintercherry (Ashwagandha ), Aloevera and Tinospora Cordifolia (Guducci) have been researched and most of their benefits listed in Ayurvedic texts have been authenticated.
8) AYURVEDA AS A SYSTEM ALWAYS FOCUSES ON IMMUNITY ENHANCEMENT
Ayurvedic medicines focus on enhancing the immunity system in the body and in increasing its capacity and quality and not merely triggering it to react against a pathogen.
9) WESTERN MEDICINES ARE TOTALLY DISCONNECTED TO SPIRITUAL HEALTH, AYURVEDIC TREATMENTS ARE BIOLOGICAL AND SPIRITUAL
The scope of spiritual welfare is out of syllabus for modern medicine. Ayurveda has laid down mechanism to aid the spiritual process.
10) THIS MAKES AYURVEDA THE MOST COMPLETE SYSTEM OF MEDICINE
A lot of dimensions of the human being like consciousness, spiritual levels and even mental conditions are not taken to consideration at all in modern medicine. Ayurvedic system apart from these also considers the environment and body composition and other factors. Ayurveda personalizes the treatment for every individual according to his body composition, climate, environment, mental condition and spiritual level. Doesn’t that sound cool?
Which system is better? The decision is yours to make.
Switch to Ayurveda and live an enriched and blissful life.
