Some times some animal products like milk, bones gallstones can also be used. There are many Ayurvedic medicines in which some minerals like arsenic, gold, copper and lead are used. Alcohol can be also used during the operation as a narcotic. There are many Ayurvedic medicines and Ayurvedic companies in India. Ayurveda has many treatments for those diseases, which do not have treatment in western medicine.

Ayurveda, the ancient Indian treatment is well known as one of the major systems of alternative medicine. The treatment is based on usage of indigenous herbs. In the recent while, the interest in Ayurevda has been on a rise. In the past, it was considered as being truly undeserving to be called as a medicinal system, due to lack of lab trials. But, times have changed and now is taken more seriously with various researches on ayurvedic herbs that are used as medicines being conducted.

Recognised by World Health Organisation, Ayurveda is certified by the Government of India as well. The holistic healing approach that it follows is more than just mind-body sync, it aims at achieving overall good health inclusive of emotional and spiritual aspects as well. Unlike other medicinal systems which rely on medicines, Ayurveda treatment takes a slight different turn. The treatment combines herbs, yoga, exercises and dietary changes to treat disease on a holistic base.

Though mainly considered as totally harmless, Ayurveda does has its share of side effects. Alike everything which in excess causes harm, ayurvedic herbs if exceeded more than recommended can do harm. Consider the case of Garlic bulb. When consumed in excess amount, garlic is observed to cause post- operation bleeding. If consumed on empty stomach, the side effects include vomit and chest burn. Odour problem is another issue with excess garlic consumption. Another in the list is licorice root. Far too consumption can result into swelling of hand and feet due to water accumulation. Use of excess licorice should be avoided specially in cases of high blood pressure.

Obesity is a major trouble for masses around the globe. Modern day health care systems still have not been of much use to many and is slowly being replaced by Ayurveda for cure. The major thing working in favour of ayurvedic healing are the effective results. Practitioners offer treatment based on the assessment of different body types. Importance is given to achieve overall health, which often is neglected in conventional treatment for troubling obesity. The Ayurveda treatment may vary from each person, yet, the basic objective is overall healing.

Ayurveda massages are known to facilitate blood circulation, which helps in fresh and regular supply to tissues functioning in the body. Massages cure the problems of insomnia, high and low blood pressure, ulcers, disorders of urinary bladder and kidney. Ayurveda massage therapy is mainly known for the rejuvenating spirit it incites.

Ayurveda means the science of life. Followers and practitioners alike believe in this ancient form of medicine as well as its philosophy of treating the whole person.

Ayurvedic medicine consists of many different elements. In India, there are eight distinct branches of Ayurvedic medicine:

Internal Medicine
Surgery
Treatment of head and neck disease
Gynecology, obstetrics and pediatrics
Toxicology
Psychiatry
Care of the elderly and rejuvenation
Sexual vitality

Nearly 80 percent of the population of India use some form of Ayurvedic medicine for healing, with or without a combination of conventional medicine. In the United States, over 200,000 adults will use Ayurveda medicine in any given year.

The underlying basis of Ayurveda medicine is that the foundation of health has to do with our connection to the universe, namely the bodys constitution or prakriti and life forces or doshas.

The prakriti refers to a persons general health, the likelihood of them coming out of balance, and their ability to resist disease or recover from it. The prakriti is unique to each person, and describes the way their body functions to maintain health. Key elements are the way the body digests and disposes of waste. The prakriti generally stays the same over ones lifetime.

The doshas are the three life forces or energies found in us all, with some combination of all three found in everyone. The likelihood of a person contracting a disease are based on the balance of the doshas as well as the state of the body, and mental and lifestyle factors.

The three doshas are:

Vata  this dosha respresents ether and air. It is the most powerful of the three as it controls vital body processes like breathing, the heart, cell division, the mind and waste disposal. This dosha can be upset by fear, grief, and lack of sleep, among other forces. Those with vata as their main dosha are susceptible to skin and neurological conditions, heart disease and rheumatoid arthritis as well as other afflictions.

Pitta  this dosha represents fire and water, and controls both the hormones and digestive system. Pitta can be upset by spicy or sour food, fatigue and too much time in the sun. Those with pitta as their main dosha are susceptible to hypertension, heart disease, and others.

Kapha  this dosha represents water and earth, and controls strength and immunity. Kapha is upset by greed, sleeping during the day, and too much salt and sugar in the diet. Those with kapha as their main dosah are susceptible to diabetes, cancer, obesity and respiratory illnesses.

Ayurveda medicine has been around for centuries, and is here to stay. It is an alternative, holistic, and complete medicine and its list of patients grows each day.

Shri Vinay Mitra Mandal, a non government organization from Raipur, in the Chhattisgarh state of India, has been actively involved in many social welfare activities. They regularly participate in various activities helping the poor people of the region and have been quite actively involved in Jaipur foot camp in collaboration with Balco, a private sector company. The programme helps provide light-weight artificial limb made of Aluminium to poor people who suffer from lower limb amputation. They have also been involved in other relief and social welfare programmes over the years. One such programme was in Kukurbeda and Subhash Nagar areas of Raipur, Chhattisgarh.

There was an outbreak of Jaundice in the poor areas of Raipur which included the Kukurbeda and Suhash Nagar areas of Raipur. Many people suffered from Jaundice and most of the people suffering were poor women and children. The outbreak of Jaundice was mostly in the slum and poor areas of Raipur as the hygiene in these areas are generally not very good. Many times the water supply is not up to the mark. In general the cases of water borne diseases go up in India during the monsoon season and the people who suffer the most are the poor people who cannot afford the good quality water as buying treated water is expensive and the only source of treated water at reasonable cost is the Government water supply which is not available in many of the places due to various reasons.

During the outbreak of Jaundice in Raipur, Shri Vinay Mitra Mandal took several steps to help the poor people. They worked closely with the local government officials of the city and also with the mayor of the municipal corporation of Raipur. They collaborated with the private sector business organizations and doctors to help the poor people of kukurbeda and Subash Nagar. They organized camps where poor people were given free medical checkups and also given free medicines in collaboration with the private sector donors. The camps were personally visited by the mayor of the city. The free medicine included the ayurvedic medicine Kamalahar. Kamalahar is an Ayurvedic or herbal medicine which is very useful in the treatment of liver disorders such as hepatitis, jaundice, cirrhosis, fatty liver, etc. The herbal ingredients present in Kamalahar are very good for liver detoxification which helps to make the liver strong and healthy. The medicine is widely used in the eastern part of India in the state of Jharkhand, Orissa, Bihar, etc. to treat people suffering from jaundice, hepatitis, cirrhosis, fatty liver and at the same time the medicine is also very cost effective. The NGO worked closely with Khatore Pharmaceuticals Private Limited the company that make and sells Kamalahar.

During the outbreak of Jaundice in kukurbeda and Subash Nagar areas of Raipur, apart from setting up the camps, Shri Vinay Mitra Mandal also dedicated their office in the city centre to distribute free Kamalahar and other medicines to the needy patients. The initiative by the NGO in collaboration with Khatore Pharmaceuticals Private limited benefited hundreds of patients in the worst affected areas of Raipur and helped in controlling the outbreak of jaundice quickly. The people who benefited from the initiative most included poor women and children who have been the most affected by the outbreak. The initiative was even more important as the current way to treat jaundice is to ask for rest which the poor people cannot afford as they have to work daily to earn their living.

Ayurvedic Product Kamalahar - Effective for the treatment of liver disorders, hepatitis, jaundice, cirrhosis, fatty liver.

Chronic Pain conditions are a growing problem in the United States. And while the debate still rages about whether or not chronic pain should be managed as a separate condition or just a symptom of another problem it is clear that pain management has become a booming segment of the healthcare industry.

Consequently, the use of pharmaceutical drugs for pain control has also reached an all time high. Drugs like Oxicontin, Vicodin and methadone, are front page news in causing America's latest drug crisis, as a result, the use of cocaine and heroin have also reached levels not seen in this country in 30 years.

Due to the economic and scientific phenomena of the pharmaceutical revolution of the 20th century, thousands of years of knowledge were suddenly abandoned. Herbal medicine has safely and effectively treated pain for millennia, and is for safer than the synthesized, processed medications that today's doctors seem to be all too willing to hand out like so much candy.

In the realm of alternative medicine, there are many forms of natural pain management that are in fact, the basis of where many of our oh-so-popular pharmaceutical drugs come from.

Codeine and morphine are opium derivatives that may be effective but are also highly addictive, and even aspirin is a derivative of willow bark. Many other plants have been used in natural pain management since antiquity, such as lavender and chamomile for minor pain issues and these plants have the added benefit of also assisting with the emotional component of pain such as anxiety and difficulty sleeping. Plants like henbane and mandrake are so effective that they are even used very effectively during labor to ease the pain of childbirth.

Some wonderful and powerful herbal medicine can also be found in the spice cabinet. Spices like turmeric, and ginger are two of the most powerful anti- inflammatories on the planet. These plants are natural COX-2 inhibitors; they are the alternative medicine answer to the popular pharmaceutical drugs Celebrex and Vioxx. In the middle east, India and all over Asia where the diets are rich in spices like turmeric, and ginger and cayenne, where life is also far less convenient then our own, people have a far less occurrence of arthritis and chronic back pain, and continue to work very labor intensive jobs such as farming and agriculture work even into their 90's.

There has always been an accepted school of thought in allopathic medicine that it is acceptable to injure one part of the body to heal another, thus even common over the counter NSAID pain relievers such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen, can cause long term damage, acetaminophen to the liver and ibuprofen to the kidneys, in natural pain management many plants, roots, barks, and other herbs not only antistetic in nature but they are also anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic as well, and herbal medicine is gentler on the system and is more synergistic with the body allowing for greater absorption of the necessary constitutes.

So you see that alternative medicine goes beyond the typically accepted ideal of treating just the symptoms and goes farther to treat many of the underlying causes as well as some of the other components involved in chronic pain conditions.

Nevertheless, as well considerably vata can cause hyperactivity, due to the fact it affects the motion of other energies in the human body. The Ayurvedic herbs employed to deal with ADHD are herbs that calm down the vata. While clinical trials have yet to decide the efficacy of these herbs, they seem to be a promising organic remedy for ADHD.

Brahming>

Brahmi is one particular of the most critical herbs of Ayurvedic medication. Brahmi is native to the marshy locations of India, and its therapeutic properties arrive from the bacosides and saponins on its leaves. When purified bacopa extracts and bacosides have been given to animals, researchers mentioned that they enhanced their psychological functions and studying power. Brain scans on people also exposed that brahmi enhances the effects of the neurotransmitters GABA, serotonin, and acetylocholine. This can explain why brahmi is recommended to treat depression and anxiety. Brahmi is also made use of as a natural antioxidant to safeguard brain cells and nutrients from cost-free radical damage. Traditional Ayurvedic texts advise taking 5-10 mg of powdered brahmi daily, but double-blind present day-day studies on people demonstrate that 300-450 mg of brahmi with 55% bacosides is most efficient.

Ashwagandha

Asghwagandha is plant from the pepper family, but Ayurvedic medicine makes use of its roots, not the fruits. Ashwagandha is known for its adaptogenic properties, which means it has numerous, non-particular actions that counteract the results of worry and advertise total perfectly-getting. The roots also incorporate compounds referred to as withanolides, which are the most important active components of ashwagandha. Research display that the molecular structure of withanolides is related to that of Asian ginseng, yet another powerful organic treatment for ADHD.

Mandukaparni

The roots and leaves of the mandukaparni plant are vital Ayurvedic herbs applied as a brain tonic. This impressive herb is recognized for its capability to enrich memory (dhriti), recollection (smriti), and comprehension (dhi). Ayurvedic practitioners believe that these a few skills must be completely designed to achieve the mind's fullest likely. Aside from that, mandukaparni is known to boost the creation of collagen, increase the body's psychoneuroimmunological response, and nourish the thoughts-entire body connection.

These 3 herbs are the major components of a commercial herbal preparation identified as Mentat, which is specifically designed as an ADHD herbal remedy. A amount of placebo-managed, double-blind research in India exhibit that Mentat has aided small children get over ADHD and finding out disabilities. Mentat and other Ayurvedic herbs are typically safe and sound and non-poisonous, but it is often ideal to consult the assistance of a homeopath ahead of taking ADHD herbal treatments or giving them to your little one.

Around 80-90% people today at their teenage experience from the problem of this skin ailment known as pimples. It may appear on the neck, encounter and physique.
