Difference between Allopathy, Homeopathy and Ayurveda

There are basically three types of methodology to treat a disease. Homeopathy, Allopathy and Ayurveda. All of these methodologies have a common goal which is to cure the disease. Each one has different origin and different way of treatment. In the present article we are going to differentiate these three methodologies their origin and the way of treatment used by them.
The word homeopathy is basically derived from the Greek word “homoios” which means like and “pathos” which means suffering. Which means like cures like or we can say that the substance which is responsible for a particular disease in healthy people is used to cure that disease. Homeopathy medicines are highly dependent on individuality. Two persons having same disease are treated differently means the medicine is different for both in homeopathy. The medicine is given on the basis of how different peoples react to same kind of disease. So, everyone has a different reaction to same disease and hence is treated with different medicines.
Homeopathy helps the body to heal itself by improvising its immune system. The medicine given to an individual depends on his behavior and his susceptibility to a particular type of disease. The treatment in homeopathy takes a long period of time. So it can’t be used in emergency case. One good thing about homeopathy is that this methodology has no side effects if the treatment is going under the supervision.
Allopathy is basically a part of western medical system and is spread all over the world. Its network is very wide. It is adopted by almost all of the countries around the world. Allopathy is drug oriented methodology. Allopathy mainly depends on three things hypothesis, experimentation and the outcome of the experiment. This methodology basically depends on experimentation. In this doctors treat a disease based on symptoms not on the causes. The pill given to the patient depends on the outcome of the experiment. Suppose one got viral then his blood is tested to check the type of viral. Depending on the output of the blood test the pill is given. So we can say that in allopathy there is a pill for a particular disease. There is no place for individuality in allopathy because the same pill is given to all the patients having same kind of disease.
The effectiveness of allopathy in emergency is the main reason why people around the world adopted allopathy. Most of the drugs given in allopathy have side effects. The pill given for a disease is curing that particular disease and also giving birth to another disease in the body. So allopathy has this drawback of side effects of pills. For example the person who has fever is given paracetamol tablet which is responsible to bring down the body temperature to normal condition but on the other hand it is harmful for our lever. The side effects can be internal or external. Once your disease is cured then you have to take pill for the side effects caused due the pills used consumed for the treatment. And then while curing these side effects another one occurs. So a chain of side effects is created due to the pills given in allopathic treatment. So this is the area of concern in allopathic treatment.
Ayurveda is ancient medical science of india. It is called as the mother of eastern medical science. According to ayurveda there are three types of elemental energies in human body and a disease is caused due to imbalance of any of these three energies called doshas. The three doshas are
1).           Vata (air or wind)
2).           Pitta (fire or bile)
3).           Kapha (earth or bodily fluids or phlegm or mucous)
All the above faults or doshas are called tridoshas in ayurveda. The imbalance of any of these doshas in our body causes the disease. There are list of disease in ayurveda caused due to imbalance of one particular dosha.  Ayurveda depends on the hierarchical structure rather than experimentation in allopathy. The physician in ayurveda does their own experimentation to identify the disease. Every physician in ayurveda has different remedy for a same kind of disease. Ayurveda depends on the medicinal plants for treating a disease. It uses the matter in their natural form. When compared with allopathy, ayurveda has very low count in terms of side effects which merely occurs due to the lack of knowledge of the physician. Now a day’s people are adopting ayurveda due to its low count of side effects.
