Even this challenging situation would ease
Food, water and sleep determines the immunity of your body to a great extent. You just have to monitor your intake and do sufficient exercise. Although if there was a showdown or a competition between treatments, I am on Ayurveda's side. There's a problem though, the raw materials aren't readily available in ayurveda and most ayurvedic medicines cannot be stored for a long time. Moreover Ayurvedic medicines come with certain constrains.
But even with all these flaws, Ayurveda is proven to be efficient in curing the most chronic diseases.
The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.
Allopathy cures fast. But side effects are more. It may not cure the problem permanently.
Homeopathy medicines are also good, I agree. But the important point here is the Physician should understand the disease correctly. So the diagnosis is very important here.
Allopathy so far is the most advanced system of medicine and surgery available to mankind today and it is backed by lot of research and ground work. Unfortunately this system of medicine has lot of side effects which many times trap the patient in another type of complication. Over and above that there are various ailments where Allopathy also fails (like cancer). In many ailments it does not cure but manages and patient has to take medicine life long. For example Tuberculosis is perfectly treated by Allopathy by certain medicines in few months while for blood pressure (hypertension) you have to take medicine life long.
Ayurveda system is based on action of medicinal plants and their products on human ailment. This system is based on natural products and as such do not produce side effects. In many ailments these successfully treat the patients but in severe infections and serious illness the efficacy of these medicines is questionable. It is believed that ayurvedic system of medicines is more effective on people having disciplined and yoga following life style.
The homeopathic medicines are based entirely on a different principle and mechanism of 'like cures like' and is not backed by as much research as has been done in Allopathy. The system has not gone much changes in diagnosis and prescription than what was propounded by its founder Hahnemann, a German physician long back in 18th century. It is believed that if diagnosis is correct this system is able to treat many diseases. One surprising element in this system is that the potency or effectiveness of a formulation increases with more and more dilution of the raw medicine. This may not be palatable to modern day scientist. Still homeopathy is a world wide popular system of medicines. One of the reasons of its popularity is that it does not produce side actions.
Every system has its merit and demerits and it is to be taken after considering the pros and cons.
Knowledge is power.
