The Samhitas – original texts of Ayurveda do mention a combination of herbal and mineral medicines to treat diseases. But, with today’s lifestyle, a lot of patients may not be able to have strong medications. Dr. Rekha follows her family’s tradition of prescribing medicines prepared using only herbs. So, we do not use any medicines with heavy metals in our medicinal formulations. All our medicines are prepared with the finest quality ingredients at our oushadhasala (traditional medicine production facility), supervised by Dr. Rekha and her team of Ayurvedic doctors.
Our treatment ethos is roga sarve api mandha agni – all diseases are caused by an imbalance in our digestive fire (aka gut health). We work primarily on improving gut health and therefore, do not prescribe any medicine that creates an overload on the liver, which is one of the most important organs of digestion. Hence, we take utmost care in making our medicines. Apart from avoiding mineral medicines, we also do not use Ayurvedic herbs, such as ashwagandha, shatavari, etc. that can affect metabolism and digestive functions.
