Why Ayurvedic medicines or herbs shouldn’t be taken without consulting vaidhya ?

👉Many times it happens that people take medicine after consulting a Vaidya for their disease, if the Vaidya called again after 15 days or 1 month, then they do not visit him and keep on taking the same medicine after getting relief or if the same disease recurs they take same prescribed medicine by themselves .

👉The point to be understood here is that in Ayurveda, the treatment is done according to the condition of the doshas and not by the name of the disease, that’s why vaidhya called patients after 15 days or 1 month of treatment to see the condition of the doshas and accordingly further treatment is done.

👉 In the same way, even if you have the same disease again, then which dosha is dominant at that time, in which source and in which tissue, the treatment is done according to it, so do not take the earlier prescribed medicines by yourself.

👉Most of the people think that Ayurvedic medicines can be taken by themselves or based on information from internet because there are no side effects but it is not so, as even if you the name of your disease but Ayurvedic treatment is done according to dosha and other parameters which only qualified vaidhya can judge that is why for same disease there is no same treatment in Ayurveda.

👉On self-medication, either there is no relief or side effects occur, then you will say that Ayurvedic medicines do not work or work slowly or have harmful effects.

👉Consult a Vaidhya even before taking any common herbs like amla, turmeric, fenugreek, garlic, arjun, etc. or Ayurvedic tablets, decoctions etc.
