AYURVEDA Vs.HOMEOPATHY Vs. ALLOPATHY

Now that’s  a  sort of question which have always been in our minds, before staring any treatment for a particular problem or disease, and it’s quite justified also, after all it concerns with our life and the lives of our loved ones …homeopath-med

Kindly allow me to share a comparative analysis with you ( i had myself experienced all three i.e Homeopathy, Allopathy and Ayurveda in last 22yrs )

A. MEANING  –

1. HOMEOPATHY – Derived  from the Greek hómoios- ὅμοιος- “like-” + páthos πάθος “suffering” which means a substance that causes the symptoms of a disease in healthy people will cure that disease in sick people, or in more simple words ” like cures the like “.

2. ALLOPATHY – Derived from a Greek word állos, “other”, “different” + the suffix πάϑος, páthos, “suffering” which means   “other than the disease”.

3. AYURVEDA –  Ayurveda is a Sanskrit term, made up of the words “ayus” and “veda.” “Ayus” means life and “Veda” means knowledge or science. The term “ayurveda” thus means ‘the knowledge of life’ or ‘the science of life’.
B. CONCEPTS THEY FOLLOW  –

1. HOMEOPATHY –  The differences between the way two individuals react to a similar disease are an indication of the unique way in which each of them react. This uniqueness of the symptoms & reactions brings in the difference in the remedy prescribed to each one of them.

2. ALLOPATHY –  The concept of Allopathy is based on that diseases can be treated with the help of drugs.

3. AYURVEDA  –  Ayurveda  insists that the ‘fault’ or dosha, the ’tissue’ or dhatu and the ‘impurity’ or mala should be in harmony with each other, with all the components i.e  ‘Five Great Elements’ (Panchmahabhuta) theory. These five elements are earth (prithvi), water (jal), fire (agni or tej), air (vayu) and ether or space (akash), should be properly balanced.

C. APPROACH TOWARDS THE DISEASE( any disease)

1. HOMEOPATHY  –  Homeopathy forms a holistic approach to health, it aids the body’s abilities to heal itself by improving the immune system of the body. They have a striking balance of  SCIENTIFIC , NATURAL  and INDIVIDUALISTIC approaches in their treatments and prescribing.

2. ALLOPATHY –  Allopathy is an approach which aims to treat the illness only. Allopathic practitioners are limited by what they can do because they only focus on the symptoms not the causes. It seems as though there is a pill for every ill, and even better, a pill for all their side effects. We have somehow been convinced that when sick, it is due to a lack of medicine or surgery and this is the only way.

3. AYURVEDA –  Ayurveda stresses a balance of three elemental energies or Vāyu / vāta (air & space – “wind”), pitta (fire & water – “bile”) and kapha (water & earth – “phlegm”). According to ayurvedic medical theory, these three substances — doṣas (Devanāgarī: दोष)—are important for health, because when they exist in equal quantities, the body will be healthy, and when they are not in equal amounts, the body will be unhealthy in various ways.

D. INDIVIDUALITY FOR THE PATIENTS

1. HOMEOPATHYHigh on individuality, Homeopathic medicines are prescribed on the basis of Individualization which tailoring the remedy according to individuals need. It means every individual is different from others in some way; be it his stature, talking, choices, behavior, or his susceptibility to diseases.  Homeopathic medicines are always prescribed for the complete package that is the individual so naturally the medicine will change for different persons.

2. ALLOPATHY –  Almost no individualization, if two person are suffering from flu then they have a common medicine for both of them.

3. AYURVEDASomewhat individualized, if compared to allopathy but not as highly as that of homeopathy .

E. COST EFFECTIVENESS ( NO AMOUNT OF MONEY IS MAXIMUM, IN CASE OF RESTORING ONE’S HEALTH )

Although cost effectiveness is an issue with some of us, but if we want to have a complete, reliable and forever kind of cure, we have to reach out to the best of doctors, who can cure us and on whom we can trust. now, as far as the money matter goes i only have to say that ” health is priceless “ you can blame me for saying this but its all i have observed till now.

F. SIDE EFFECTS OF THE MEDICINES

1. HOMEOPATHY  If taken under proper guidance of a homeopathic physician, homeopathic medicines have no side effects, but It’s a well known fact that anything taken in excess is bound to be harmful. So why won’t homeopathic medicines cause harmful effects if you take them in excess due to negligence or thinking them to be placebo.

2. ALLOPATHYAllopathy has its own chain of side effects( internal or external) connected with every prescribed medicine.

3. AYURVEDA In ayurveda, there are merely 1-2 side effects, which are of mild nature and easily revokable.
