- Are the medicines provided by a ‘legally approved practitioner’? This is important to let the legal system and others to know he/she is not a quack.
- Is there a proven and uniform system available for the system of medicine what we take and the person is educated in that? Otherwise we are taking medicines by someone who claims but not actually a practitioner.
- Are the medicines tested scientifically against that particular disease? It doesn’t mean that should be tested the way modern medicines are tested but need to have some rationale.
- Is the medicine we take proven as having ‘no side effects’ officially by the system available? The truth is no medicine or even food is not proven as not having any side effects.
- Anyone can practise any system of medicine without legal approval or proper education and pay a TV channel to increase the business. Can we deny this?
Do we know how much ‘liver failure, kidney failure’ cases were admitted in hospitals because they have taken alternative medicine by untrained and unapproved practitioners? I agree that it happens with approved practitioners but the number is comparatively very low.
I know many kidney and liver failures due to wrong medication by alternative medicines. The quacks are taking advantage of published side effects of allopathic medicine and doing propaganda against it just to get business. This does not mean alternative medicines are not having side effects.
Since I am working /consulting in HIV and TB projects for more than a couple decades seen hundreds of alternative medicine providers claimed cure for HIV, STI and TB were miserably failed despite of given opportunity to prove by allowing them to treat the patients admitted in government hospitals.
We should also be careful of choosing allopathic doctors who is getting commissions from testing centres and drug manufacturers and making a big whole in our livelihood. We will certainly discuss on this in upcoming articles. Read Ayurveda addiction killer review here.
