Native to India, Ayurveda is the collective study of treatment strategies, pathology, anatomy, diagnostic systems, and physiology. Recognized by the World Health Organization as a useful traditional health science, Ayurveda is frequently used in combination with western, or allopathic, medicine in cities, villages, clinics, hospitals, and private practices. Physicians practicing Ayurvedic medicine evaluate a patient’s comprehensive health of the mind, body, and spirit. Treatment is prescribed after the physician determines the patient’s overall “constitution.” Treatments can include exercise, dietary changes, meditation, yoga, herbal sweat baths, and herbal tonics and are designed to help the patient retrieve a state of harmony.
Popular Ayurvedic Herbs include the following:
- Coleus Forskohlii
- Gotu Kola
- Gymnema Sylvestre
- Phyllanthus Niruri
