Is the fight really about Allopathic vs Ayurvedic?
Is the fight really about Allopathic vs Ayurvedic? Are the two different philosophies of treatment even comparable? While Allopathy is the modern method of treatment, Ayurveda is the ancient method of treatment. India has made giant strides in the development of modern medicine and scientific evidence related to it. We have become some of the few countries in the world with capabilities of end-to-end development and production of pharmaceuticals and biologic medicines like vaccines.
Why aren’t we developing Ayurveda on the same lines of scientific vigor? Why should Ayurveda medicines not be subject to trials before introducing into the market? Why does the Indian public frown upon anyone who questions the effectiveness of ayurvedic medicines, just because they are from the past and were used by ancient sages, they cannot just be deemed to be effective. Why do we still believe that our ancestors were much smarter than us? Why do the proponents of Ayurveda hate the Allopathic doctor so much, that they have started making fun of doctors martyred on duty in the fight against COVID-19?
Baba Ramdev’s Attack on Allopathic Medicine Doctors
Baba Ramdev in one of his sessions questioned the whole science of Allopathic modern medicine and crossed all limits by commenting “Lakhs Of People Died Due To Allopathic Medicines”. We fail to understand what problem does Baba Ramdev has with Allopathic Medicine?
It is Allopathic modern medicine due to which countless lives are being saved and countless doctors have given their lives while fighting at the frontline between the sickest of patients not caring about their own health. And this is the most outrageous comment which actually disrespects the sacrifice of so many doctors.
It was only due to advances of modern medicine which have lead to the production of one of the fastest developed vaccine ever in human history to counter the COVID-19 virus.
If not for modern medical science, Babas like him would never even have understood the disease or the causative factor for COVID 19. Today he has the audacity to make such a comment that “Lakhs Of People Died Due To Allopathic Medicines”.
Baba Ramdev and his team have made Ayurveda into a pure business, what used to be a benevolent science. We strongly condemn this statement and the attitude of Baba Ramdev towards modern allopathic medicine.
By making such comments he has been responsible for the death of countless cancer patients who go to baba Ramdev thinking that he will cure their cancer (personally know quite a few patients whose treatable cancer became advanced and inoperable while they were in his ashrams) and he will also be responsible for the death of countless Covid patients if following him the patients don’t seek timely medical care.
