Ayurveda is an age-old medicine based treatment which is based on ancient writings and believes in a holistic approach to physical and mental health. It remains one of India’s traditional health care systems. Its primary goal is to promote good health and not fight disease. Ayurvedic healing believes in a delicate balance between body, mind and spirit. With the cold months approaching us, many households rely on ayurvedic kadha to help prevent cold and other common diseases in low temperatures. But the usual question pops up. Is ayurveda really effective? Does Ayurvedic Kadha really work? This article will help you in understanding the way Ayurveda works and its side effects.

Does Ayurvedic Kadha Really Work?

Ayurvedic medicine includes mostly plant substances and a few might also include animal based substances and heavy metals which increase the power of the medicine. The common household Ayurvedic kadha is made as a concoction of different substances which are easily available in the kitchen such as tulsi, ginger, honey, lemon, spices. These spices are boiled in water until the quantity is reduced by at least half. This Kadha is beneficial due to its anti-inflammatory properties and anti-microbial properties. But how does Ayurveda heal? The mechanism of action is not understood exactly but consuming it daily in moderation is proven beneficial.

What are the side effects of Ayurveda?

As the old saying goes, anything in moderation is good for health. Although Ayurvedic Kadha is made of household items, excess amounts can lead to deleterious effects. Due to the presence of plant alkaloids there are chances that the liver can be affected in too much quantities. Other side effects include constipation or diarrhoea or reflux. Since the substances are concentrated, higher quantities may result in these side effects

Ayurvedic kadha made from household spices can be taken but this might not treat the condition. If you are looking for a natural way to improve your well-being, one can try having it every day in moderation. But when you have any symptoms of reflux, or yellow eyes or any other medical condition, do not forget to tell the physician about the ayurvedic supplements/concoction you are taking.
