Description

This paper will focus on researching the general health and health practices of the Indian population by region. More specifically, if they practice more traditional ayurvedic medicine and wellness programs or take a biomedical approach (often seen as more western or modern). From here, the overall health in terms of life span, sickness rates, and mortality to different diseases, for example, will be compared by practice type. Not only will this give an idea of the varying effectiveness of each type of medical practice, but it will also allow some social perspectives into view by way of discussion of the history of these two seemingly contrasting medical practices, and how they might come together to meet the needs of a modern world.
