    Ayurveda is an excellent system of medicine, some of the procedures practiced by ancient indian physicians are truly remarkable. But over time some superstitious & ill conceived practices have crept in, these need to be weeded out by proper scientific testing. Proper scientific testing as in double blind control trials under strict regulation & not like the example shown in this video where effects like placebo effect, observer bias & patient bias played a role, the observer knew which of the subjects had been administered with the medicine & I guess the subjects knew too since he made no attempt to hide it. Rigorous, scientific third party clinical trials are needed to prove to the world that Ayurveda truly works.

    Of course they work, It just needs to be studied deeper to isolate compounds … make concentrates and go thru human trials. Ayurveda is practiced since Vedic civilization … these people weren’t idiots.

    "alternative medicine" which works, is called "medicine"

    A new company called Patanjali is giving a run for the money to the consumer goods corporates. The products of patanjali are excellent and very effective.

    The military found it to be very effective and they have signed a contract with patanjali ayurved to supply huge amounts of medicines. Great 🙂 2015.
