🤔Why you suffer from same health problem again and again??

🌷Many times people suffer from same health problem even after taking remedies and treatments for same.🙄

🌷Be it acidity, gas, constipation, respiratory issues,skin problems, piles, kidney stones or tumor.

🌷 Minor or major health problems repeat in same person after some gap.🤔

🌷 This is because if you do not understand cause of your problem and stay away from them this repetition cannot be prevented.👍

🌷 In ayurveda first step of treatment is’ nidan parivarjan ‘ that is staying away from cause, without that no treatment is completed.✅

🌷That is why when you visit a vaidhy he asks in detail about your routine and food habits. ✅

🌷 Then he suggest some changes in routine and diet which helps you to regain health fast and prevent recurrence of disease. 😊✅

🌷 So in ayurveda treatment is very individualistic.

🌷 For this problem take that medicine is not a ayurvedic way of treatment.

🌷A real vaidhy never suggest any medication just by knowing the name of problem.
