Ayurveda, Siddha or Allopathy: What is the difference? – Dr. Devi Shetty with Sadhguru

Sadhguru explains the difference between the three systems of ayurveda, siddha and allopathy. While allopathy is essentially chemical-based, ayurveda is a herbal-based medical system. Though many ayurvedic practitioners are receiving ayurveda training certificates in a month’s time nowadays, the classical Indian systems of medicine need enormous dedication. It is said that ayurveda has over 300,000 prescriptions, which a person has to know and imbibe before he can impart.

Siddha Vaidhya, the classical system from South India, is elemental in nature and comes more from the yogic science. The essential principle involves purifying the five elements in the system, which is the most basic practice in the yogic science.

Join us Saturday, June 28th at 7pm for the live webstream of the next In Conversation with the Mystic, “Mechanics of Health.” Dr. Devi Shetty, Chairman of Narayana Hrudayalaya, will engage Sadhguru on what is needed to bring about true health and wellbeing.

    Ayurveda, Siddha have no relevance in today’s world. Allopathy is only Scientific way to treat ailments. The former are based on superstition and dogma, and are not evidence based. Govt. should ban quackery in all forms and implement only scientific way (allopathy) for treating illnesses.
