Technically, Ayurveda is a form of medicine, that deals with chemicals occurring naturally. Plants, ores, minerals, roots, trees, mountain soil, sea water, etc, used to be the sources of such ayurvedic medicines.
But throughout the ages, Ayurveda has seen significant growth and prosperity. Many experiments have been done on ayurvedic medicines to increase their levels of potency! So, these medicines have an early onset, or works faster than before!
But obviously you can consult your doctor if there’s any part of your diet you are unsure or worried about!
You should know that these medicines are extracted from naturally occurring substances. Making of ayurvedic medicines undergoes vigorous refinement! The end product only contains those compounds that will treat your disease!
Even if it contains traces of toxic metals, then that’s on purpose. To some extent ayurveda also believes in the theory of “Like cures Like”. So you will only be taking medicines that are suitable for you. And if you still have questions regarding the ingredient content of your medicine, then feel free to ask your doctor, and you should be provided with the correct answers to your queries!
But, that doesn’t mean one should ignore medications! To lower the side effects, the practitioner will help you out in various ways possible.
Finally, what matters is, whether or not you are taking the right medicines to get well! Only a proper and well trained ayurvedic practitioner can help you out well, in treating your medical condition, with reduced side effects!
You should have a detailed talk with your respective doctors, and discuss your medications thoroughly.
Obviously not all medications tally well with each other! Only doctors can you help you out with the correct combinations of medicines!
Since Ayurveda deals with both physical and spiritual healing, hence you can expect to face questions that might sound impractical. Like, say for example, how often do you have mood swings, what type of lifestyle you lead, with what kind of people you mix, what kind of environments you find suitable to live, and anything as such!
But you should not lose hope hearing questions like those! Well-being, strongly involves theories of physical health, psychology, psychonautics and so on!
To be precise everything that exists in this world, influences our health and well being!
Most importantly, there are high chances that you might really like your appointment with a good Ayurveda practitioner!
Also once you come out from that appointment, you might feel motivated and energised!
