Laxminivas Sarma, a past president of FTCCI shared his experience with Ayurveda over allopathy. When he suffered from a neck problem, allopaths suggested surgery, but he went for Ayurveda and he is now completely cured of it. I am not saying allopathy is bad. It can be used only in cases of emergency. Ayurveda has the least side effects. Youth don’t believe in Ayurveda but after some use cases, youth also follow Ayurveda, he said.
