Can I keep taking my medication when using Ayurveda?
One of the misconceptions about herbs used in Ayurvedic therapies is that because they are plants and not chemical-based pharmaceuticals, they aren’t very potent. This is, of course, completely untrue, for while there are herbs used that are valued for their gentle nature, there are also some that when taken in improper combinations can undermine one’s health. While it is certainly possible for you to continue taking certain forms of medication while also pursuing an Ayurvedic regimen, it is of tremendous importance that you speak to a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner about your medical history and current routine before implementing anything in your lifestyle.
