I think best is that you have to try only one pathy at a time. Ayurveda and homeopathy had a different process to cue a disease which are exactly; why opposite.

Water intake should be dependent on your thirst. However, while jogging you can take less water or include some energy drink or electrolyte drink which should replenish your body's electrolytes. For a healthy person, it's without any medical conditions, water intake of 3-4 litres is good.

Allopathy Allopathy is derived from the Greek word állos (other or different) + pathos (disease or suffering), which means “other than the disease.” Allopathy is essentially a piece of the western therapeutic framework and is spread everywhere throughout the world. It is received by the majority of the nations around the globe and commonly called as drug therapy. Allopathy is basically a drug oriented methodology and relies on three things, hypothesis, experimentation, and the result of the experiment. In this methodology, allopathic doctors are restricted by what they can do on the grounds that they just have to concentrate on the symptoms of a disease and not on the causes of those symptoms. It appears that there is a pill for each evil and then, a pill for all their side effects. It is known that allopathy only offers a partial cure, as the drugs are made to only cure the reaction and not the root cause. The effectiveness of allopathic medicines during an emergency is the fundamental reason why it is adopted by most of the people all around the world. The main disadvantage of allopathy is that most of the medicines are associated with some side effects. The pill given to treat a disease cures that particular disease but might give birth to another disease in the body. These side effects can be internal or external. Once the disease is cured, a person needs to take medicines to adverse the side effects caused due to that medicine. For example, if a person takes allopathic medicines such as a Paracetamol tablet to cure fever. The tablet brings down the high body temperature to normal but the tablet also has a harmful effect on the liver. #Fact: It is important to note that there is no place for individuality in allopathy as the same pill is given to the patients suffering from the same disease. Ayurveda Ayurveda – the science of life Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word which is formed from two words, “Ayus” meaning life and “Veda” meaning knowledge or science. So the term Ayurveda resembles, “The Knowledge of Life.” Ayurveda is also known as the science of natural healing because it derives its medicines purely from nature. Ayurveda is originated in India and is 5000 years old medical knowledge system. According to Ayurveda, body, mind, and spirit are connected with each other. The most part of Ayurveda is connected with the cures accessible from nature. It also deals with the root cause of the problem and is a permanent cure in most of the cases. In most of the cases, a patient treated with Ayurveda not only gets cured but also gets the permanent immunity. The main advantage that Ayurveda has over homeopathy is that the former just uses the natural means to cure a disease and is the most eco-accommodating approach to get cured. It has been proved that – “Ayurveda is the mother of all the medication” and every other type of medication is derived from the science of Ayurveda. AYURVEDA SINGLE DRUG -MULTIPLE EFFECTS-NO/LESS SIDE EFFECTS. SLOW BUT STEADY RESULTS. SUITABLE TO ALL. ALLOPATHY SINGLE DRUG-SINGLE EFFECT-MULTIPLE SIDE EFFECTS. QUICK RESULTS BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS. BOTH SCIENCE R BEST AT THEIR PLACES. CHOICE OF TREATMENT DEPENDS UPON THE PROGNOSIS, DISEASE, PATIENTS NEEDS AND TOLERENCE.

It all depends on protein demand of the body. Normally we do not get protein deficient unless we are doing hard physical work. Just like that consuming processed protein powders though may not harm, but will not have any good effect as well, as they will be just eliminated from the body. Over the long run they do impact kidneys. Hence first take high protein rich whole foods and do higher physical activity.
