India has an abundance of ayurvedic herbs and these herbs have been used in different forms and ways since ages. In ancient times, acute diseases were also treated with the help of Ayurveda and even surgeries were done with the help of this miraculous science only. With the advent of modern technology, Ayurveda started losing its sheen and people thought it to be silly to go the ayurvedic way for any remedy. But as it is said ‘Old is Gold’, Ayurveda kept on proving its presence in ways and the other. The best thing about ayurvedic herbs is that they are 100 per cent natural and have minimum side effects, only when not taken properly.
Ayurveda, the most ancient medical science of India, is well-known for its healing powers. Herbs from various plants, flowers and trees are the key component of Ayurveda. These herbs were traditionally used to get people rid of diseases and to keep the mind, body and spirit in balance. With changing lifestyles, this science has also been modified to be used in various ways. Talking about spas and wellness centres, ayurvedic herbs are an essential part of many therapies such as body massage, body wrap, scrub and even helping the clients in making their diet chart. The treatment starts with a consultation during which your body type (dosha) is determined. Body types are classified into three types – vata, pitta and kapha. These herbs are very effective in detoxification, fat mobilisation improves blood circulation and tan removal from the body. Our Ayurveda is very vast and there are numerous herbs, some of which are still not known to mankind.
The major factor for ayurvedic herbs to work well is that one needs to be consistent and disciplined while on the treatment. One should follow the given advice properly else it can have adverse effects.
