Ayurscientifica 1 (1): 000-000, 2017
For the past thousands of years, the fight between disease and treatment is still going on. Human beings have shared a common goal of improving health for longevity. However, different medical systems around the world have developed their own approaches to achieve this goal. In these approaches, modern system of medicine emerged as an important system of medicine based on evidence and scientific validation. At the same time, the tradition medicinal systems (TMS) are undergoing through a proving-process in a completely new environment. In modern era, the attitude towards TMS is either to be modernized or disappeared. However, public preference is moving towards traditional medicine where science is not the starting point to decide the healthy living. It is also apparent that any healthcare model based on a single system of medicine is not sufficient to cope up with the healthcare demands. With existing modern medicinal system, the safety is the prime concern in developed countries whereas accessibility and cost are the major issues in developing countries. Therefore, integration of traditional and modern medical systems is need of the hour to serve mankind in a better way.
