There is no doubt that modern medicine playing a great role in case of emergency or trauma but once patient stable then must need to switch on alternative natural treatment as for longer use allopathy medicines are not good There are lot of studies and even clinical trials of each drug of modern medicine stated that it have adverse effect as it developed in laboratory by synthetic chemicals, gases, beta blockers microbial and biotechnologically.
History of Allopathy Medicine
Its is believed that allopathy (modern system of medicine) discovered by Hippocrates a Greek physician in 300-400 century but there is no authentic evidence that modern medicine used before 1800 century as first modern medicine was invented only in 1804 by a German scientist “Friedrich Sertürner” but commercial usage of modern medicine started in mid of 1900 century when it was first used in second world war to treat bacterial infections and as pain killer for army peoples during their injuries in war. If we talked about the modern medicine start in India then it was promoted by the British government in India otherwise before 1900 century major source of treatment was ayurvedic treatment in India by the Indian Vaidya.
So, the history of Allopathy or modern medicine is only 200 years old and this is the disadvantage side of of allopathy while we discussing When Ayurvedic treatment Or Modern Medicine need to take.
3 First Modern Medicine Invention in Allopathy
1st Morphine for Pain & Neurological Disorder
First modern medicine was invented by a German scientist “Friedrich Sertürner” in 1804 and its name was “Morphine”, But the main source of active chemical was opium which was extracted in his laboratory but in Indian system of medicine or Ayurveda our ancient Indian scholars (Sadhus/ Maharishi’s) already using opium (Afim) helps to balance Kapha and Vata Dosha and increase the Pitta Dosha in the body and to treat severe pain, muscle pain, spasm, neurological disorder, neuropathy, anxiety and depression etc. But later opium is comes under the narcotics act and controlled by The Central Bureau of Narcotics and ayurvedic manufacturing in Mohali cannot use the opium without approval of narcotics dep’t. and state drug licensing authority.
2nd Quinine for Malaria
After the first invention of Morphine German scientist “Friedrich Sertürner” second medicine invented In 1820 by the French researchers Pierre Joseph Pelletier and Joseph Caventou, Name was “Quinine” and this medicine is also originated by taken active ingredients from the plant name “cinchona” and this medicine is used for malaria but its has lot of serious side effects associated with this medicine like bleeding problems, kidney damage. abnormal heartbeat, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, nervousness and stomach cramps etc.
But in Ayurvedic Treatment there are lot best ayurvedic medicines for malaria which can treat malaria without having any side effects like Mahasudarshan Churna or Sudharshan Vatti, Giloy or Gaduchi Vatti or Amritarisht, These ayurvedic medicines are known as a best ayurvedic pain killer (ayurvedic analgesic), ayurvedic antibiotic and anti-inflammatory.
3rd Paracetamol for Fever & Headaches
Then 3rd medicine name was Paracetamol, first synthesized 1852 and as per few reports state that Cahn & Hepp or a French chemist Charles Gerhardt. Paracetamol helps in pain and reduce a high fever as associated problem such as headaches or sprains, and later in 1897 another medicine for same symptoms also invented called aspirin also made with active ingredients from the bark of the willow tree and this medicine used in headache, fever and inflammation by a German scientist Felix Hoffman, He was able to modify salicylic acid to create acetylsalicylic acid, which was named aspirin.
Felix Hoffmann famously synthesized two drugs: aspirin, one of the most widely beneficial drugs in modern medicine, and heroin made from the morphine a natural ingredient extracted from the seed poppy plants and one of the most harmful of illegal substances. In Ayurveda, above mentioned ayurvedic medicines works as pain killer and antibiotic.
Above three modern medicines are invented between 1800 to 1900 century but officially commercial usages started by USA, Australia and other westerns country only after the second world war in mid of 1900 century.
Advantages & Disadvantages of Modern Medicines
Like Ayurveda, Modern medicine also having the advantages and disadvantages. Allopathy or modern medicine is playing a great role in case of any emergency, trauma or surgery and must need to take to get the stable and recover from emergency but you cannot carry it for long time as modern medicines can do lot of side effects and complications as it contains synthetic chemical which can be absorbed in our body in a certain limit but if you take it regularly then it can be very harmful for liver, kidney, eyes and many more other associated health issues.
Many people thinking that modern medicines has been introduced in market after proper clinical trails but it not 100% true and lot of myths in this statement. By doing some clinical trails on some animals or blind fold trails cannot be assured that modern medicine is 100% safe or good for human so this is again one of the disadvantage of allopathy in our post about When Ayurvedic treatment Or Modern Medicine.
Even there are lot of modern medicines which was withdrawn or banned from the market even after 10-15 years ?
