Ayurveda is a complex system of traditional medicine native to the Indian subcontinent that has roots stretching back 5000 years. The goal of Ayurveda treatment is to maintain the health of a healthy person and heal the illness of a sick person. Ayurveda emphasizes more on prevention of diseases rather than its cure. The ayurvedic treatment is given not only for the ailments or the affected parts, but to the person as a whole. This creates an environment for purifying the body naturally, which eliminates all toxic imbalances, enabling to regain natural resistance from diseases and attain good health.

History shows us that while the West was still developing, India was already a developed civilization.  Ayurveda developed and gained popularity in this brilliant ancient culture, doctors here knew how to sew wounds, drain fluids, remove kidney stones, perform basic surgery, and treat numerous ailments and all this is documented in the Susrutha Samhita, the oldest known surgical text.

Then along came Western allopathic medicine, they identified viruses and bacteria and genes and offered the humankind with quick fix solution for ailments and ills and Ayurveda was left behind. But in recent times  Ayurveda has again gained huge popularity all across the globe as people are realising the side effects and the problems that are associated with allopathic medicines.

Though there are many articles and  write ups denouncing ayurvedic medicine and citing the ill effects of it the truth is  that -  Ayurveda  practised  in its true form  can  do  no harm.  One  has to know that  everything  herbal is  not  Ayurveda,  only  those which follows  texts  written  thousands  of  years  ago and  manufacture  the  ayurvedic  medicines as per the guidelines  that are  prescribed   are  true to the tenants of Ayurveda. The Ayurveda philosophy believes that treatment varies according to individual constitution. Ayurveda holds that each human possesses a unique combination of Doshas as the ratio varies from person to person.

A few ayurvedic medicines do use herbo-mineral compounds, however ethical manufacturers do make sure that these are processed and purified as mentioned in the texts. In majority of the ayurvedic medicines metals are never added rather it is organic herbs that are given prevalence. Ayurveda is an ancient system that includes medicines, meditation, exercise and dietary guidelines practiced by millions of adherents on the Indian subcontinent and increasingly in the West. Ayurvedic treatment is non-invasive and non-toxic, so it can be used safely as an alternative therapy or alongside conventional therapies.

Overall, Ayurveda is not only treatment but a way of life. It does not only prescribe ayurvedic medicines for an ailment rather it uses herbs, herbal-mineral combination, massage, meditation and yoga. It emphasizes on physical, mental and spiritual well-being and this itself is enough to prove that any treatment process that is based on organic herbs and  yoga and meditation cannot have harmful side effects. Moreover, Ayurveda gives you an in-depth knowledge of life and helps achieve - dharm, arth, kama and moksha.
