In rural India, there is a great dearth of hospitals, dispensaries and health centers. The cost of conventional or allopathy drugs are increasing day by day and sometime beyond the reach of poor people which constitute the majority of our population. The greatest advantage about allopathy lies on its ongoing research inn respect of improvement upon the already existing medicines, and introduction of new medicines in which alternative medicine lags behind. Allopathy has risen to present heights because it is backed by enormous financial assistance from the states and voluntary organization and countless individuals. These advantages were denied to other systems and this is the leading factor that compelled the alternative or complementary systems of medicines to adopt a low profile. Certain therapies were confined to specific areas, tribes or even selected homes. As a result the benefits of alternative medicines could not reach the vast majority of people. However no one can deny the importance of conventional drugs and surgery in the treatment of life threatening disorders. But it is also a known fact that in some cases conventional Drugs does not cure the diseases rather than make the symptoms of the disease more complicated. On the other hand, alternative medicines fail to achieve the task of curing problems in certain cases. Hence a holistic or rational approach is required to make the people free from diseases and lessen their sufferings. Conventional and complementary practitioners need to exchange ideas and cooperate to combine the best drugs, herbs and other treatment approaches to improve the well being of their patients. Integration is the key to the best possible healthcare for the future.

The author strongly believes in integrative medicine whereby a combination of conventional and alternative medicine work wonders in controlling and curing any type of disease.
