I think it is better because you cannot trust any of the "babas" or "vaids" making Ayurveda medicines. You never know what they mix in it but modern medicines are tested and certified. Rather they are also better because we just have to swallow the tablet with water or have a syrup and it effects faster.
Traditional medicine relies on beliefs, without any support, and theories based on assumptions. Modern medicine relies on science and the scientific process, in which treatments are based on facts, and are tested rigorously. The scientific basis of modern medicine is why many diseases that were deadly in the past have now become commonplace to treat.
You can get as much homeopathy as you'd like. I'm sticking with Chemo.
Modern medicine has great impact on curing diseases that were deadly in the past, it helped extend lifespan, but on the other hand, traditional medicine shouldn't be excluded from some treatment, especially in he countries where modern drugs are expensive and are not available. Unfortunately, some herbals with healing effects are being victims of commercial eradication by pharmaceutical companies when productions of drugs become profitable which leads to the destruction of ecosystem where these plants are growing.
Modern medicine tends to be much more rigorously tested than more traditional types of medicine. But blanket statements do not really work here. Tylenol works better than an herbal tea for pain, but does acupuncture work better than Tylenol? That is something the patient alone can decide as they navigate their health care options.
Modern medicines aren't totally better than traditional medicines, or even herbal medicines, for that matter. With the recent onslaught of class action law suits against modern drug manufacturers, I think that modern ones have not had the time and effort put into testing, as much as many of the tried and true drugs and medicines on the market. Just because something is cutting-edge, it doesn't make it better. It is up to the consumer to decide.
Modern medicine helps with the illnesses that have been known and around for some time, but we have poisoned our world such that new illnesses are cropping up every day. And if you are unfortunate enough to have one of those illnesses, you're likely to spend years and a significant investment searching for a diagnosis and trying to get your illness treated, only to discover the doctors didn't really know what they were dealing with anyway.
First of all, I'd like to thank modern medicine for all the people in the E.R they have saved and in that aspect modern medicine has been fantastic in rescuing our loved ones.
However, we are talking about modern medicine. What is modern medicine? Modern medicine is drugs.
Drugs are unnatural, they harm us. How many doctors really know nutrition? They are taught to administer drugs. Biggest company in the USA ? - Pharmaceutical company. It's all a game.
Do we really need medicine for a flu, cough or fever? No.
Natural healing is the way to go.
