During the ancient era people were treated by the same old traditional herbs...
And they were way to fit than us....Today if you see every next person has some
Or the other disease....I believe with the introduction of new 'modern medical science'
more diseases like cancer,AIDS and many more contagious diseases have come to existence.
Yes...Ancient medicines are time consuming in their process of healing but they are are body
friendly....And most importantly they do not have any side effects....If we see chemicals used in
modern medicines are like poison to the human liver....And may even cause liver failure.In my opinion ancient science is better than modern medical science,because it is based on the principles
I agree that ancient medical science is better compared to modern medical science. The most important factor that makes me feel that ancient medical prevails compared to present medical techniques is that, People used to go the doctors (vaidyas)and doctors used to recognize the type of disease by just testing the pulse rate. But these days people waste a plenty of time in scanning x ray and other things. The ancient treatment was done by doctors at cheaper rates which was affordable but nowadays people pay lacks together and still do not get perfect assurance of one's health. So by these points I think that ancient medical methods were far better.
According to historians, Until the 19th century, Life expectancy was about 35 yrs compared to about 75 yrs in civilized nations. This is because, Back then, They didn't know about germs so didn't bother cleaning wounds, Having clean bandages, Or even washing their hands prior to touching wounds. Fact is, Back then, If you got scratch by a branch that had bird dropping on, You could die from infection because nobody bothered to clean the bird poo out of the wound much less use anything to sterilize it.
Modern medicine is largely doctors prescribing synthetic man made chemicals that alter your body chemistry. This manipulation causes cells to mutate over time. Prescription drugs are no different than street drugs in the sense that they change the way your body works, And the main argument against illegal drugs is that they have negative consequences in both the short term and long term, And can be very addictive. Opiates, Amphetamines, And benzodiazepines all have potentially life threatening risks extremely addictive, Yet they are some of the most prescribed medications in America. Traditional medicine was all natural, And did not have the same side effects in holistic style healing as in today's lab produced pills. Further research into naturally existing compounds for medical purposes is necessary to evolve modern medicine and find more effective and less harmful treatment approaches. Utilizing traditional holistic medicine could potentially ease the growing health crisis in America.

It is true that ancient medical science worked, But since it was herbs and wild plants, It was also a gamble to find ways to heal. Modern medical science have everything known listed out, From side effects to what is causing the ailment. Modern medicine have increased life expectancy, Whereas some ancient medicine killed the person trying it.
But let's talk alchemy. Alchemist were trying to find both the Philosopher's Stone and the Elixir of Life. The Elixir of Life is a liquid believed to be able to heal all disease. Did it work? No. Did it kill people in the process? Yes.
But it is important to point out that ancient medical science have some proven remedies, But it is no match for effectiveness when compared to modern medicines.
To start off, Life expectancy in the days of herbal medicine (around 1700 for the later days) was around 35 years. If you want to argue sanitation then look at life expectancy in the early 1900's which was 47 years, Despite knowledge on germ theory and sanitation. Today the average life expectancy is around 80 years. There really is no rational argument for ancient medicine being superior.
To top my point off, I want to add that modern medicine is all backed by peer reviewed research, Proving that it works. The reason herbal remedies are almost never used today (by physicians, Not quacks like naturopaths) is either because they have failed to overcome the burden of a placebo during clinical trials, Or other treatments have been shown to be more effective.
