Allopathy

Introduction

The word “allopathic” is a synonym for “Orwellian.” Allopathy illustrates “doublespeak” perfectly: To de-fine something as the opposite of what it really is. According to www.medterms.com, allopathic medicine uses treatments which produce disease symptoms different from the symptoms of the original disease being treated. This contradicts the First Rule of the Hippocratic Oath: “Do no harm,” which is the foundation of real medicine. In reality, however, allopathic procedures cause disease symptoms which are both different and identical to the original disease. For example, Prozac is mainly prescribed to treat depression, while the side effects of Prozac include depression. Does that make any kind of “medical” sense? Why would anyone accept a treatment that causes the very problem being treated? The purpose of allopathy, therefore, is actually the opposite of what most people are told and believe.

Philosophy

The Ayurvedic philosophy is in prevention of the suffering of human beings and to provide them a healthy and long life. The logical inference, sense of perception and hearing realized by the great souls and saints are the true basis of this treatment. On the other hand Allopathy follows 3 main steps which include Hypothesis, Experimentation, Observation and Conclusion. The approach is more symptomatic and the cause in not deal with accurately.

Nature of treatment

Ayurveda is associated with finding the root of the disease and then aims to completely eradicate it. This science of medical treatment is fully aware of the body system and it does not suppress the disturbing element which causes the disease. It aims at searching the origin of the disease and then cures it. The cure is permanent. But in allopathic treatment the disease is not cured permanently and it provides only instant relief to the patients by destroying the disease causing organism.

Side Effects of Allopathy

Patient safety is an essential principle of healthcare. Each phase of healthcare provision has the potential to trigger an error. This means that problems can occur in the practice, products, procedures or systems of healthcare provision which, in turn, could culminate in adverse events for the patients, including an adverse reaction to drugs. This reaction is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as “a response to a drug that is noxious and unintended and occurs at doses normally used in man for the prophylaxis, diagnosis or therapy of disease, or for modification of physiological function”. Although other terminologies have been used to describe unwanted effects of drugs, such as ‘toxic effect’ or ‘side-effect’, the term ‘adverse effect’ is currently the most preferred. Pharmacovigilance is “the science and activities relating to the detection, assessment, understanding and prevention of adverse effects or any other drug-related problem”.

Advantages

The main benefit of the Ayurvedic treatment is that it has no side effects because the Ayurvedic products are prepared by using the essence of fruits, spices, vegetables and natural herbs. These natural ingredients help in curing diseases without causing any other problem. But the side-effects of using Allopathy medicines include hair loss, weakness, allergies, etc.

  • The treatment of Ayurvedic treatment may not be fast but it is very effective unlike the allopathic treatment where it the disease is cured in a short span of time but it causes many side effects and is less effective in permanent cure of the disease.
  • The Allopathic treatment despite its more modern and advanced system of medical treatment, is still unable to cure diseases like Piles, Rheumatoid arthritis, Jaundice, etc. But Ayurveda has successfully been able to cure and manage these diseases.
  • The Allopathic medicines cleanse our body system partially whereas Ayurvedic products and medicines help in decontaminating our body and cleansing it.
  • The Ayurvedic products are environment friendly as they are prepared from organic products unlike the allopathic medicines. The allopathic medicines are manufactured by using chemicals and hence cause damage to the environment.

Disadvantages

Allopathic medicine is a system of medical practice that aims to combat disease by use of remedies, such as drugs or surgery, producing effects different from or incompatible with those produced by the disease being treated. It is a medical practice which makes use of all measures that have proved of value in treatment of the disease.
Taking some complementary medicines and prescription medicines at the same time can increase the risk of side effects, because the active ingredients in the various preparations can ‘clash’.
Unwanted side effects can be caused by all kinds of medicines, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, and complementary medicines such as herbal preparations and vitamins.
