The above-mentioned herbs are only a few out of thousands of Ayurvedic herbs which have benefited the mankind for thousands years and is and will be doing the same for many more years. Ayurvedic medicine comes in the forms of churnas or tasty and delicious powders which you will love to lick. Ayurvedic physicians provide these churna to be taken with after or before food sometimes and sometimes with water or with milk according to the disease and symptoms of the patient. Some churnas which are listed under Ayurvedic Medicine are avipatikar churna, ashwagandha churna, ajamodadi churna, kukubhadi churna, aamalki churna, ghoti churna, chandnadi churna, jesthabasadi churna, dhanyapanchak churna, nimbadi churna, panchasakar churna, pushyanug churna, balchatubhadra churna, mahasudarsan churna, yasthimadhu churna, raktalavangadi churna, vilvadi churna, rohitkayadi churna, and many others.

Benefits of Ayurveda are not only limited to treatment of various types of diseases or disorders but Ayurveda also helps in improving and maintaining beauty of various parts of our body like face, eyes, nose, and hair. Some ayurvedic herbs by the name of Rasayanas Keshya herbs promote overall longevity and health of our hair. Amla or the thorny Indian Gooseberry is particularly beneficial because of its ability to maintain hair strength and color. Consumption of amla on a daily basis either in tablet form or in powder form as a dietary supplement helps in promoting beauty of your hair. Triphala as I mentioned above also benefits in cleaning up the bowels and detoxification and at the same time it works as a super tonic for the human body, so there are multiple benefits of Ayurveda some of which I have mentioned above but there are many other remaining which I am unable to mention in such a small space, so the scope of Ayurvedic treatment is very wide due to its natural healing system.

      Yes if a person will start to follow medicine of nature than the person will avoid getting ill and prevent many diseases or problems from happening. Most people don't understand this before it is too late. Natural medicine is positive all the time. I know it takes time but treats from the roots of the disease not like allopathic medicine which treats the signs and symptoms only and just deactivates the infection temporarily and when it erupts again, our body needs more strengh and higher dose of chemical medicine to fight with the disease and this keeps on happening again and again until the patient dies.

      @BKcreative, Thanks for your great comment. I have been taking Ayurvedic herbs in form of tablets for the last 10 years or more. As I regularly eat outside and sometimes drink a glass or two of liquor also, I consume one tablet in the morning and one tablet in the evening of Liv-52 DS or double strength to keep my liver working fine. Liv-52 is an Ayurvedic medicine which contains Himsra or Capparis spinosa, Kasani or Cichorium intybus Kakamachi or Solanum nigrum, and Arjuna or Terminalia which cleans up the toxins out from our liver, preserves it, and it has been found beneficial in liver cirrhosis patients.

      Another most common Ayurvedic medicine is Laxa Care, which treats piles and postsurgical conditions and removes problems of constipation from its roots if consumed regularly.

      The most important thing about Ayurvedic medicine is that it has no side effects and taking it does not cause problems that is why there are millions of people worldwide who take Ayurvedic medicines like Liv-52 and others without any prescription. Just go ahead and start taking Liv-52 and I promise that you will see a difference in your overall health in a few days. Your indigestion and constipation problems with also go away. With Ayurvedic medicine, there are double benefits, you will become health and it will also not hurt your pocket. I recommend you to buy Liv.52 DS (Double Strength) 60 Tablets' by Himalaya for just 6.50 $US

      @agusfanani, there are many spas and health centers in India and abroad that are offering hair care, beauty care, and healthcare. Thanks for the comment friend., also thanks a lot for your comment. Yes there are many herbs found in Indian foods like in Northern India, the vegetable curry is made up by using turmeric for color and strong bones. Turmeric heals many types of internal ulcers or infections in a easy way that’s why Indians use this in their daily food. There are many others and I will write a hub on that. Healing eating – thanks for the nice idea dear.

      @pachuchu1977, It’s my pleasure that you visited my profile and got to know about me for the first time via this hub.

      Loved reading this hub. Thanks Soni. It has stood the test of time. 5,000 years! it is hard to argue with that and would love to see modern medicine embrace these traditions more and more. I'd be interested to know how many of these herbs are found in Indian Cooking! Takes healthy eating to another level - healing eating!

      I'm a believer in this ancient practice. A friend had the most serious skin problems - and dermatologists were giving her all sorts of topical skin creams (of course this doesn't address the cause of the problems). She went to an Ayurvedic practitioner here in NYC - and was told she had to stop eating corn (my friend loved corn on the cob and popcorn) - but she stopped and immediately, within days, her skin started clearing up - it has been perfect ever since!

      I embrace all these ancient and time tested non-invasive and safe treatments.

      Thanks for the hub!
