The history of medicine, tells that the early medical traditions include those of Babylon, China, Egypt and India. Then The Greeks introduced the concepts of medical diagnosis, prognosis, and advanced medical ethics. After a long Journey of Systematic training, understanding of anatomy, great inventions eg; that of microscope, Advanced researches , along with developments in chemistry, genetics, and lab technology (such as the x-ray) modern medicine or Allopathy was born.
Allopathy’ as described by German physician Samuel Hahnemann, dates back to the late 18th century and is the practice of treating diseases by means of drugs that produce effects different from those caused by the disease itself.*(allos ‘opposite’ , pathos ‘suffering’ ) and mostly involves the use of harsh medical practices and administration of drugs, which HAVE toxic potential”
Till the time THIS Toxicity, side effects, addictions, development of resistance were manageable, ALLOPATHY saw it’s boom, and the traditional systems of treatment and medication were ignored. But with the cons of Allopathy so glaringly frightening, in your face and causing wide spread and uncontrollable harms, Old systems of traditional therapies are seeing Revival
Ayurveda, with it’s origin that goes back nearly to 5000 years, is the oldest surviving complete medical system in the world. Originating from INDIA, The art of Ayurveda spread around in the 6th century BC to Tibet, China,Mongolia, Korea and Sri Lanka, carried over by the Buddhist monks travelling to those lands. Derived from its ancient Sanskrit roots – ‘ayus’ (life) and ‘ved’ (knowledge) – AYURVEDA offers a rich, comprehensive outlook to a healthy life. The main source of knowledge in this field comes from the Vedas, the books of knowledge, more specifically Atharvaveda that dates back to around 1000 BC, The Charaka Samhita, the Sushruta Samhita and The Astanga Hridayam, a more concise compilation of earlier texts created about a thousand years ago
With such rich heritage, history, knowledge, trust AND the backing of hundreds of years of ACTUAL usage and PROOFS of EFFICACY and Safety, AYURVEDA with NO untoward , unmanageable toxicity, has again come to be treated as the main line of therapy even by allopathic practitioners too.
