Allopathy

 The scientific foundation of mainstream medicine took shape in the latter half of the nineteenth century.

 Louis Pasteur’s Germ Theory of Disease, Robert Koch’s postulates, Paul Ehrlich’s discovery of Salvarsan

against syphilis in 1909, were few of the milestones which brought about a paradigm shift in the practice of medicine.

 Science was added to the art of medicine,

 In subsequent years this science was greatly influenced by the pharmaceutical industry.

 While modern medicine or allopathy has contributed greatly to advances in treatment, particularly in

surgical specialities, it has increasingly adopted the “mechanical model” or one size fits all approach.

 This treats humans as machines overlooking their diversity. It killed the art and fragmented the science.

Under influence of market forces, it overlooks the immense self-healing powers of the body.

 Modern medicine has immense value in medical emergencies and can be life or limb saving in such acute situations.

 It has made great strides in surgical specialities.

 It has its limits in chronic and lifestyle related diseases where a holistic approach is more appropriate.
