In brief: Both have benefits
Many types of healing modalities including eastern traditions and western allopathic medicine can be beneficial depending on the issue at hand.
In some cases, both can be used together. In other cases one may be more appropriate though not exclusive (i.e. In a severe trauma situation, western medicine can save your life; for symptoms of a cold, i would think of using eastern herbal remedies).
