The word medicine has never been new for human beings. As medicine is without doubt, an inevitable element that can not be thrown out of our lives since it helps us get rid of any kind of ailment. The term medicine itself is diverse as it does not only refer to the drugs we take in case we suffer from a disease but it is a science as well which is being studied all over the world. Now this study of medicine is then further categorized in many sub branches like homeopathic medicine, allopathic medicine and herbal medicine. Moreover, even the study of medicine does not imply that the this study is only about diagnosing and curing diseases of human beings but in fact medicine is studied to find cures for animals as well.
People often indulge in this futile discussion of why medicine is important. Well, let me counter ask all of them that if any of their vehicles’ part suffers wear-and-tear, would they keep the vehicle with them without finding a cure? Of course not because it may lead to some serious issues so, that exactly is the case with living organisms. When we suffer from a disease due to any possible reason, we also need an immediate cure and this cure is a drug or medicine. Now that’s beyond a discussion since, medicine is almost indispensable in keeping a living organism healthy. So, the thing which can still be discussed is which type of medicine has the most effective long term results.
Now as mentioned earlier there are three main types of medicines. Among which herbal medicine is the most primitive method of curing ailments. Herbal medicine is basically the type of medicine which is being prepared by using different plants having medicinal properties, their leaves, bark, roots etc. It is said to have no side effects and many people believe that these medicines have remarkably beneficial effects. However, some people may have certain allergies which could be exacerbated by these medicines so you need to stay cautious. Then comes the allopathic medicine, it is the modern way of treating ailments and shows the quickest results. It does not only include the oral medicines but also constitute the surgical way of treating a disease. But too many of these medicines can make you bear long term side effects. Lastly there are homeopathic medicines which although have no side effects but it takes relatively long to cure a disease. So, it depends on you which method you prefer but it is always suggested that you consult your physician beforehand.
