Ayurvedic Medicine & Mesothelioma
Ayurvedic medicine, also known as Ayurveda, is the traditional medicine of India. Much like traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine seeks to treat the entire person as a holistic system rather than addressing individual parts of the body. Practitioners seek to correct imbalances in a patient’s body systems to promote overall wellness.
Ayurveda states that each person’s body has a unique, stable combination of fundamental regulatory elements that keep the body functioning. When they become destabilized, the patient begins to experience symptoms of disease. While herbal treatments are an important part of restoring balance to these systems, Ayurveda also integrates exercise, massage, and diet to correct imbalances and make sure the body is working properly.
Ayurvedic medicine has been criticized for its practice of using metals and minerals in its preparations. Some of those medications include heavy metals like mercury that can cause permanent neurological damage when they build up in the body. In addition, toxic elements like arsenic have also been found in Ayurvedic preparations.
If you do decide to incorporate Ayurveda as part of a comprehensive cancer treatment plan, make sure your Ayurvedic preparations come from a reliable source and do not contain any minerals or metals at all. By taking herbal preparations that use metals and minerals, you may be putting your health at risk. By working with your doctor, you can find a way to use traditional Indian medicine without putting yourself at undue risk.
