homeopathyAyurvedic have been in practice in south-east Asia for ions while homeopathy has been in practice for three centuries. Both of them follow different philosophy in curing diseases.

In Ayurveda, it is believed that one can remain free of any disease by keeping the toxins out of his body. It also employs both oral medicines made from herbs and spices and surgical procedures to flush the toxins out of the body; thereby curing diseases and various ailments. In Homeopathy, diseases are cured by introducing symptoms similar to those of the disease in a much diluted form. It is believed that this will help the life force in neutralizing the disease and hence curing the patient.

According to the philosophy of Homeopathy, diseases are not contacted, but have always been present in us. It is believed by the practitioners of Homeopathy that these disturbances in life force are the main reasons for diseases and should be corrected for curing the diseases.

Though both Ayurveda and Homeopathy believes in the importance of a positive mind, they differ vastly in their forms of treatment. Homeopathy has always been critical of Allopathic medications and believes that the diseases treated by Allopathic medicines never fully leaves the body but it is just subsided by them and the diseases will return when the effect of these medicines wear off.

The validity of these medications would always remain disputed with no side relenting to the other.
