The combined knowledge of both old and new healing modalities
The combined knowledge of both old and new healing modalities is ultimately superior than a single-model approach to health and well-being. After all, no system of medicine can claim to have a monopoly on knowledge! What is needed today is a clinically responsible balance between the science of modern medicine and the comfort of alternative medicine. We need to combine the best of both worlds, much like fusion music does, and physicians from both sides can learn from each other! If Indian doctors are willing to blend an open mind with the scientific discipline which is needed for rigorous research, given our immense patient population and rich traditional medical knowledge base, they can become world leaders in providing the best medical care to their patients.
