We are living in the age of modern technology with hi-tech advance treatment options, innovations and quick results which are indirectly affecting our mind, body and soul. These are creating long term health hazards and not providing complete cures. Moreover, toxins are being added to our body through our food, environment and the chemical medications we consume. Behind all these advancements, herbal and natural medication is getting masked but thanks to a few handful companies who are still nurturing traditional values in the modern world, more and more people are realizing the benefits of Ayurveda with respect to overall health and complete cure.
Curing problems using herbs is not a new approach; it is almost 5000 years old and an authentic way to treat diseases and balance the body. It focuses on physical and emotional health and also re-energizes and heals the body at all levels; physical, spiritual and psychological. In contrast, allopathic or chemical medicines only treat physical health and suppress the symptoms. It does not provide a complete cure and does not alleviate the problem from its roots unless a person goes through surgical procedures.
Herbal Supplements Vs Allopathic Medicines
Many people avoid using natural supplements because they take a longer time to act compared to allopathic medicines. It is already known that herbal supplements are natural and derived from plants, while allopathic medicines are chemicals and produced synthetically which works on targeted tissues or organs directly. Natural products take a longer time to enter into our blood stream and start taking effect as these are not boosted by steroidal components. They are more body friendly and work slowly to remove the root cause of diseases rather than directly targeting the affected and distressed organ only.
According to Ayurveda, there are 3 types of energies, vata: controls movement, pitta: is concern with digestion and metabolism and kapha: for maintenance and growth. Any imbalance in these 3 energies is due to poor diet, disease or stress and may affect mental or physical health adversely. Hence to rebalance these energies one need to be patient because the natural supplements work to restore all the three energies and rebuild normal and long-lasting health. Though it offers slow action, it ensures complete recovery and rejuvenation of the whole body including the mind and soul.
