Allopathy works on only symptoms just aim to cure a single problem point. It may harm other body organs in the short and Long run. Operations for knee replacements and physiotherapy take so much from the body leaving aside time and money.

Indian sages worked on the beautiful science of Mother Nature and used to perform even organ replacements 2000 years ago successfully. “Jeevan shardai shatam ” which implies that everyone should be living for atleast 100 years is clearly mentioned in our Vedas because they were confident of their ancient medicinal knowledge known as Ayurveda.
