Homeopathic and Ayurvedic medicines represent two profound branches of holistic healthcare that have stood the test of time. Homeopathy, founded by Samuel Hahnemann in the 18th century, operates on the principle of "like cures like." It is based on the belief that a substance that causes symptoms in a healthy person can, in small doses, treat similar symptoms in a sick person. Ayurveda, originating in ancient India, emphasizes the balance between the individual's unique constitution (dosha), nature, and the universe. Ayurvedic medicine views health as a harmonious alignment with one's inner and outer environment. Both homeopathy and Ayurveda hold their own unique philosophies and methodologies, yet both share the fundamental belief in the body's innate healing capacity and the importance of restoring balance to achieve vibrant health.

Medicinal chemistry deals with the discovery, design, development and both plant Pharmacognosy and analytical characterisation of drug substances. Medicinal chemists are indispensable in the preclinical stages of drug development, and again as organic chemistry in drug quality control Medicinal chemists have a chance to participate in the fundamentals of prevention, therapy and understanding of diseases and thereby to contribute to a healthier and happier life. Medicinal chemistry deals with the facets of Chemistry, Pharmacoanalysis and the chemical analysis of compounds in the form of like small organic molecules such as insulin glargine, erythropoietin, and others. It also helps in developing new chemical entities from existing compounds that are of medicinal and therapeutic effect.
The investigation of biological and chemical properties of natural products for the past two centuries has not only produced drugs for the treatment of several diseases, but has instigated the development of synthetic organic chemistry and the arrival of medicinal chemistry as a major route to discover efficacious and novel therapeutic agents. Structural alteration of natural compounds or synthesis of novel compounds, based on designs following a natural compound scaffolding, have offered us a lot of vital new drugs in the fields of medicine, agriculture, and food spheres. Nature has provided a fascinating array of chemical structures in the form of bioactive secondary metabolites
The Pharmaceutical industry’s interest in natural products diminished with the advent of such promising new technologies like combinatorial chemistry (CC) and high throughput screening (HTS). The prospect of such disciplines, aimed at accelerating drug discovery efforts, led some companies to dismiss their natural product programs. Combinatorial chemistry employs parallel synthesis techniques allowing the creation of libraries containing hundreds of thousands of compounds, whereas HTS allows rapid testing of large numbers of compounds. A significant number of drugs have been derived from plants that were traditionally employed in ethnomedicine or ethnobotany (the use of plants by humans as medicine as in Ayurvedic or Traditional Chinese Medicine), while others were discovered initially (through random screening of plant extracts in animals) or later, by determining their in vitro activity against HIV or cancer cell lines.
