Ayurvedic Herbs and their health benefits, review of side effects and safety – Herbs used by healers in India, very little is known in Western countries regarding the accumulated knowledge gathered by such Indian practitioners
October 16 2016

Ayurvedic medicine combines religion and philosophy with science to bring balance to the three doshas — vata, pitta and kapha — elements of the human body similar to the Latin humors. Its origins are rooted in mythology and religious texts. The Hindu god of creation, Brahma, regarded as the fount of knowledge, is believed to have passed on knowledge of ayurvedic medicine to Daksh Prajapati, the father of goddess Parvati. Another legend has it that sage Bharadwaj went to heaven to seek knowledge. Ayurveda texts, written by ancient physicians dating back more than 2,000 years, are still followed by practitioners. The practice can also be traced to Atharva Veda, a sacred Hindu text. Passed on by sages, it was developed into a school of medicine with eight specialties, including pediatrics and psychiatry, and taught in the ancient universities of Takshila and Nalanda. Ayurveda declined with the growth of modern medicine during the British rule but it is thriving again, particularly in Kerala and Tamil Nadu in the south where home medicine chests contain pain balms and digestives alongside modern medications.

Danger and contamination
Researchers from Boston University in 2008 found that more than 20 percent of nearly 200 samples of various ayurvedic herbal cures contained dangerous amounts of lead, arsenic and mercury. Sometimes the presence of metals was a result of sloppy manufacturing; other times the metals were added deliberately as part of the herbal cure.

Rasa shastra uses mercury and other metals as curatives. In 2008, nearly half of the rasa shastra remedies tested had dangers levels of metals.
