Do these really work?
Ayurveda is a medical system developed over a period of 5000 years. That means what is documented now has been tried by our ancestor vaidyas across patients across centuries and finally documented a set of herbs for our use. Such uses are clearly documented in books(dictionaries) like Dhanvantari Nighantu and Raja Nighantu. Today India has around close to 5000 medicinal plants with their usages documented and majority of them are scientifically validated within India and global organizations too. For example, a simple search of The National Center for Biotechnology Information for Tulasi, provides all the information on the efficacy, uses and safety of the Tulsi. When used with the help of a certified ayurvedic practitioner, these scientifically validated herbs are safer than the NSAIDs, OTC painkillers and cough syrups.
Long tradition of use of many herbal remedies and experiences passed on from generation to generation has brought about reliance by the people on herbal remedies. At present, the use of medicinal plants for health benefits is increasing worldwide.
