How is the study of Ayurveda different from Allopathy
How is the study of Ayurveda different from Allopathy - Medical aspirants and in fact people, in general, have always been confused in the difference between Allopathy and Ayurveda. It is a well-known fact that Ayurveda has always been an essential part of our Indian system. From the smallest health issue like cough and cold to treating diseases like dengue and such, Ayurveda helps in all. However, an Allopathy doctor never gives a prescription of Ayurvedic medicine to any patient because legally they are not allowed to do so. This is because they are not supposed to be advising such medications to patients which they haven't themselves studied in depth. The difference between Allopathy and Ayurveda is significant and much valued in the field of medicine.
