The Ayurveda medicinal treatment mainly comprises of powders, tablets, decoctions, medicated oils etc. prepared from natural herbs, plants and minerals. Because the medicines are from natural sources and not synthetic, they are accepted and assimilated in the body without creating any side effects when they are used properly in the right proportions.
Along with medicine, proper diet and living style is also advised. This is equally important. Taking a medicine to remove the root cause and at the same time taking some food or following a life style which increases the cause of disease, decelerates the treatment process. Ayurveda advocates a diet depending on the constitution of a person and the area of inhabitance.
Panchakarma therapy involving therapeutic cleansing of the body is also used as a treatment in many diseases (know more about panchakarma).
Thus we find that the methods of diagnosis and treatment are based on simple and natural principles. Ayurveda teaches a very systematic and scientific way of life which is important to pursue both materially and spiritually.
Fundamental principles, health rules, knowledge of individual constitution of our body, use of various herbs, minerals and specially panchkarma therapy can be very safely used by one and all, all over the world to, promote good health, prevent diseases and acquire longevity.
