As far as I have read about the remedies, things had started with herbs i.e. Ayurveda in ancient times and continued for long. Whereas with the passage of time and evolution. Things changed drastically, Old philosophies and trends went on extinction in mid time. Nobody had ever thought that Allopathic drugs would ever take its way to imbibe the human life completely. Well the Ayurvedic medicine evolved in India almost 5000 years back and is considered to be the world’s oldest healthcare system and indeed it is. Ayurveda name came from a Sanskrit word that means “science of life”. The holistic formula of Ayurveda strain to create symphony between the body, mind, and spirit, making sure that the balance prevents illness, treats acute conditions, and contributes to a long and healthy life. It has been cited that more than 90% of the population use some form of Ayurvedic treatment or therapy to tune their healthcare system. In India it is taken as a different practice to relieve one from the healthcare issues. Whereas in America it is taken as a complimentary option while many individuals follow massage, meditation and cleansing therapies. And this practice has gained faith from people in tremendous level.
It has been noticed that, most of the time therapies are intended to tune physical health, mental and spiritual harmony. Well it is true to much extent that if the mental health is fine, one can have a healthy life. Ayurveda treats the whole system but not just the organ or system involved.

I recently had an opportunity to interact with one of the Ayurved practitioner just for my curiosity to know how these formulas work for individual. As, I used to listen a lot and hear about the benefits and all, from person to person. But never had a chance to glance into the same. Being a science student, I was more inclined into recent things that are working well for human being in terms of treating their system. I interacted with folks in day to day life and got to know their reviews about the various remedies available, like they said Allopathic drugs treats but it’s more of kind suppressing the virus or bacteria or any diseased condition. Added the tendency of reoccurrence of the particular suppressed condition or may be other affects that generates as side effects after having long term drugs, is more. Whereas in Ayurveda it’s nothing like that. There is no ground of side effect being noticed yet and not only Asians are sloped towards Ayurved but Americans and people from other parts of the worlds as well are trying Ayurveda and feeling the change.
There are instances where immediate treatment is required in those cases, allopathic rules the world. But when it comes for problems being detected at the beginning and if treated with Ayurved, it treats the ailment from root and the tendency of reoccurrence is negligible.
I feel, people should avoid allopathic treatment if possible, and should go with Ayurvedic remedies right from the detection of the ailment in system.
