(1) Allopathic Science Inspired From Ayurveda
In ancient times the rishis of vedic discipline have given many methods of treatment which are very similar to modern cancer treatment methods, and also Ayurvedic treatments are without side effects that are widely experienced and feared in allopathic science.

Radiation (Swedan):-
In allopathy heavy metals (radioactive) are used to give radiation to cancer affected parts of the body.
In Ayurveda the Methods are:

The tumor is applied with medicated oils and an ointment which is then covered with a metal plate made of different metals including gold silver, copper etc. these plates when applied on the tumor in heated state produce radiation which kills cancerous cells.
Heated pre-medicated oils are poured on the tumor which is one type of radiation.
Medicines are applied on the tumor in the form of a paste bound in bandage and heated, is one type of radiation.
Medicated steam is used in Panchkarma therapy to remove toxins from the body.

Like in modern medicine, Ayurveda devotes one whole section on surgery called Sushrut, given by the sage Sushrut.

In some cancerous tumors maggots start developing in the tumors when gangrene sets in shushrut has given guidelines for natural surgery of these tumors by maggots by allowing them to eat away the cancerous cells and then through herbal medicines and complex surgical procedures the tumor is naturally healed.

Since Ayurveda is much older than modern science, it can be inferred upon that modern allopathic science draws it’s roots from Ayurveda.
