2000 BC “Here, eat this root.”
1000 AD: “That root is heathen. Here, say this prayer.”
1850 AD: “That prayer is superstition. Here, drink this potion.”
1900 AD: “That potion is snake oil. Here, swallow this pill.”
1950 AD: “That pill is ineffective. Here, take this antibiotic.”
2000 AD: “That antibiotic is artificial. Here, eat this root.”
Once, when British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli was addressing the House of Lords, a member interrupted him and shouted, “You, sir, are either mad or diseased!”
Disraeli stared him down and calmly replied, “That depends, sir, on whether I embrace your principles or your mistress!”

yeah, its partial truth because ayurvedic science has lots of power to heal and to cure but the only drawback is it cant handle emergencies where only alopathy can play role.Also the new emerging diseases and infections can be cured by the drugs and antibiotics only. So the the statement is neither fully wrong nor completely right.
