Abstract

Ayurvedic medicine is considered an alternative practice of healing that focuses on the interconnectedness of the body, mind, and life forces. Ayurveda is most commonly practiced in India, and has been practiced successfully for thousands of years. Integrative medicine is the combination of both modern allopathic practice and alternative healing, such as Ayurveda. The purpose of this systematic review is to understand if Integrative Medicine using Ayurveda is more beneficial than the conventional methods of modern medicine. Since the integrative approach includes the healing of the physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional aspects of a person, it is hypothesized that this approach will show faster and complete recovery compared to modern medicinal practices. The articles and studies that were analyzed revealed that Ayurvedic Integrative Medicine is not only faster and more successful in healing diseases, but this approach is able to obtain healing results that modern medicine alone cannot achieve.
