Great number of efforts were devoted to this question in order to solve the problem. Additionally, it should be said that due to the difference in mentalities of people, who lived in various regions, different points of view and different ways to cure people appeared and became popular.

The Western world developed the practices which became known as traditional medicine. However, in some regions another practice obtained popularity and nowadays, at least half million people believe in the power of Ayurvedic Medicine (Ayurvedic Medicine., n.d.). The movie Second Opinion with T. R. Reid: Inside Ayurvedic Medicine is devoted to this very issue.

The whole movie centers around the experience of T. Reid, a reporter who decided to investigate the main issues of this kind of medicine in order to understand whether it is really efficient and can help people (Palfreman Film Group, n.d.). The movie is rather informative and it suggests firsthand experience of a person who is rather skeptic, thought, who wants to investigate the issue and understand it.

Surprisingly, it turns out that this kind of medicine has very developed infrastructure and scientific approach to the issue of health care. The movie presents a viewer a great number of facts about Ayurvedic medicine and different ways in which people are healed. Additionally, comments of the reporter make some moments more interesting and clear.

Watching the video, it is impossible not to get involved in the issue. It becomes obvious that Ayurvedic medicine is closely connected with religious and philosophical ideas and beliefs of people who live in the area. The first book, devoted to the issue, was written almost three thousand years ago (Ayurvedic Medicine: An Introduction, n.d).

However, it is still relevant and people still use practices described there. However, from the video it becomes obvious that nowadays it is rather modern and well organized practice which attracts hundreds of people all over the world. It should be said that I did not have much information about this issue before watching the video. Moreover, my image of Ayurvedic medicine was based on some traditional prejudices and stereotypes and was associated with low quality and primitive services. However, this video changed this image completely.
