Ayurveda / Ayurvedic Medicine is an ancient, recognised health care system that is native to the Indian subcontinent. It is concerned with measures to protect the body, which includes healthy living along with therapeutic measures that relate to physical, mental, social and spiritual harmony.

Ayurveda is also one among the few traditional systems of medicine to contain a sophisticated system of surgery. There are 8 branches in Ayurveda:
  • Internal medicine - Kayachikitsa Tantra
  • Surgery - Shalya Tantra
  • Ears, eyes, nose and throat - Shalakya Tantra
  • Pediatrics - Kaumarabhritya Tantra
  • Toxicology - Agada Tantra
  • Purification of the genetic organs - Bajikarana Tantra
  • Health and Longevity - Rasayana Tantra
  • Spiritual Healing/ Psychiatry - Bhuta Vidya
Ayurveda holds that the tastes of foods or herbs have specific physiological effects. Those tastes that transform after digestion are more powerful. Ayurvedic medicaments are made from herbs or mixtures of herbs, either alone or in combination with purified minerals, metals and other ingredients of animal origin before being used for medicinal purposes.

Ayurvedic massage is a form of treatment for various age related and other common disorders like pain relief, improved circulation, stress relief, better sleep, flexibility, athletic performance and emotional benefits.
Naturopathic Medicine / Naturopathy is a school of medical philosophy and practice that seeks to improve health and treat disease chiefly by assisting the body's innate capacity to recover from illness and injury. Naturopathic practice may include a broad array of different modalities, including
  •   Manual Therapy
  •   Hydrotherapy
  •   Herbalism
  •   Acupuncture
  •   Counseling
  •   Environmental Medicine
  •   Aromatherapy
  •   Nutritional Counseling
  •   Homeopathy, and so on.
Practitioners tend to emphasize a holistic approach to patient care. Naturopathy has its origins in India along with Ayurveda, but is today practiced in many countries around the world in one form or another, where it is subject to different standards of regulation and levels of acceptance.

Naturopathic practitioners prefer not to use invasive surgery, or most synthetic drugs, preferring "natural" remedies, for instance relatively unprocessed or whole medications, such as herbs and foods. Diagnostic tests such as imaging and blood tests are made before deciding upon the full course of treatment. Naturopathic Practitioners also employ the use of prescription medications and surgery when necessary and refer out to other medical practitioners.
