Ayurveda Q&A

Ayurveda, an ancient system of Indian medicine, is now being practiced the world over as a complementary system of medicine. Ayurvedic practitioners have, over the years, identified a number of medicinal preparations from natural ingredients like herbs to cure various diseases which are, at times, not completely curable by other systems.

More often than not, the Ayurvedic form of treatment is chosen by patients to avoid the toxins present in modern medicine. And, the side effects are minimal and rare.
