'fruitloopery' - what a great word.
'In Ayurvedic medicine, disease is always seen as an imbalance in the dosha system'
your dosh balance goes down and theirs goes up.(a joke)
The three doshas that need balancing are wind, bile and phlegm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dosha
They are composed of ether, fire, air, earth and water.
That's the standard scientific view from about 1300AD. Not to say that their concoctions don't contain substances that might be beneficial.
I was going to say it won't do you any harm but unfortunately
'two U.S. studies finding about 20% of Ayurvedic treatments contained toxic levels of heavy metals such as lead, mercury and arsenic.'
On the other hand many people have been killed and harmed by modern medicine too. Never heard of anyone getting compulsive gambling from Ayurvedic medicine. Just heavy metal poisoning.
