Allopathy vs Ayurvedic

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you are thinking about Ayurveda vs Allopathy?

Most of you will come up with the answer that Allopathic treatment will provide speedy and permanent recovery, which is partially correct; they may be speedy but not permanent. On the other hand, Ayurvedic treatment and medicines may provide a relatively slow recovery but it will provide a guaranteed permanent relief. But here, choosing the proper treatment is what matters.

The Truth is…

Ayurveda is a curative wonder which was brought into light thousands of years ago. Ayurveda is such a treatment that, it cures the illness leaving no side effects. It is a treatment which uses herbs and natural ingredients.

Allopathy, Western Medicines, have too emerged about to Ayurveda. It has made its own place in the new era. Allopathy is able to fix the illness temporarily with leaving behind many side effects.

Comparison: Ayurveda and Allopathy

Ayurveda will never help you in curing problems like cardiac arrest, jaundice, dengue, shortness of breath, severe throat infection etc. The reason for this is that there are certain diseases where only injections can cure and provide relief. Allopathic also comes into use when you’re severely injured or had a surgery which was indeed painful once the anaesthesia stops working.

Western Medicines come along with a lot of side effects, but indelibly cure the illness.

Conversely, Ayurveda is well known to point out the root causes of the issue and it curing it. Although it could have contraindications to a very small extent depending on your body’s reaction towards a particular ingredient, but the chances of this are very mild, ergo, one can take the risk.



Ayurveda is known to cure the root cause of the disease.

  Allopathy is known to cure the symptoms, not the root cause of the illness.

Ayurveda uses herbs and natural ingredients to calm the illness.

  Allopathy uses Science based chemical antibiotics and drugs to cure the illness.

Ayurveda is also popular because, besides curing the illness, it also leaves a sense of relaxation  to the patient.

  Allopathy just terminates the symptoms, that’s it.

It has either very mild or no side effects.

  Whereas, Allopathy enters with a lot of side effects.

Ayurveda treats the illness by looking at the person’s body’s response towards any particular herb.           

   Allopathy never does what Ayurveda does. If two persons are suffering from a same disease, the pills given to them will be same.


In the Allopathic methodology, doctors focus on the symptoms, not on the root cause of the illness. In other words, the root cause of the disease is not cured, which leaves behind a ton of side effects. But, there is a pill for every ill and a pill for every side effect. Therefore, Allopathic offers only a partial cure as the medicines are made only to cure the symptoms and not the root cause.

But in contrast, Ayurveda heeds the “The Great Five Elements”: Prithvi, Jal, Agni, Vayu and Aakash theory. According to this theory, there should be consonance with the ‘fault’, ‘tissue’ and the ‘impurity’. Ayurveda focuses on the balance between the three elemental energies (Doshas) Vatt (Air + Space= “wind”), Pitta (Fire +Water= “bile”) and Kapha (Water + Earth= “phlegm”).

It’s very straightforward. You do not dampen the leaves in order to make the plant look beautiful, you souse the roots so that it would grow up as an alluring healthy plant in the long-term. Ayurvedic treatment works the same way, we think long term. We do not just cure the symptoms; we cure the root cause itself so that you never have to get a treatment again.

Treatment as Individuality

In Allopathy, if two persons are suffering from one same illness, the treatment given to them will be same. Hence, no individuality is kept in mind whilst Allopathy.

While in Ayurveda, the treatment is individualized according to the person’s body constitution, (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) and treated as per the requirements.

Side Effects

Allopathy derives with a chain of side effects. This is one of the major drawbacks of Allopathy. Each prescribed medicine is linked with some side effects, because we need to cure them too, we need to take more medicines and the cycle keeps moving.

We eyelessly believe that Ayurveda has no side effects for they are made from herbs and natural ingredients. But, if not used properly, Ayurvedic medicines can cause adverse effects. Also, the medicines should be used in their purest forms without any adulteration.

Hence, we deduce that there are instances where you can only use Allopathy and there are instances, too, where you can only rely on Ayurveda.


Allopathy comes with a lot of side effects,

Which will ultimately result in a lot of aches!

Choose judiciously, Ayurveda or Allopathy,

What to use when,

But before that, come to Sarvah Ayurveda and acquire a little gen
