Every system of medicine has got its own advantages and disadvantages. Each has its
own supremacy over the others. Each has its own deficiencies. As regards my view, Ayurveda
holds the foremost place in my heart. It has been expounded by Lord Dhanvantari who is the
Ayurveda Pita. Ayurveda is the foremost amongst the medical sciences now extant. The effect
of its treatment is lasting and unhampered. It is the origin and source of most of the other
systems of medicine. As regards immediate cure with the least delay, Allopathy occupies first
place in the front rank. Homeopathy is the most harmless system of medicine and the cheapest in
view of cost.
From "May I answer that" by Swami Sivananda (1987-1963). More Informations on Swami Sivananda: on the Website of Divine Life Society, Photographs of Swami Sivananda, German Pages on Swami Sivananda

  • Siddha Vaidya is the oldest. Dr. Reghu family has been practicing for 900 years. Ayurveda is preventative and Siddha vaidya is curative. Dr. reghu mentioned there might be 10 doctors in India that know what they are doing. The bodywork is excellant.
    Shoga Mochizuki whose family works on the Emperor of Japan their family has been practicing for 240 years. His system is very good. Remember MAO killed off anyone who knew anything so what they do today is from 1950 etc. The Japanese kept theirs as they were able to hide in the mountains.www.japanesemassage.net
