    Bogus?? What's bogus about medicines which are almost always 100% natural? Even if they dont work for you in the very least you will not have any side-affects. Of course it goes without saying that this has been in use in India, and that part of the world for thousands of years.

    An experience of mine. I personally used to have running nose, caught cold every 2 weeks when I was 16 or so. Then I ate the following religiously for 2 odd years, a spoonful a day. It is more than a decade but I have never had any cold/allergy.

    For people with seasonal allergies I would recommend it greatly. You can find it online or in most local Indian stores.


  8. Most herbal products on the market have roots in Ayurveda. Not bogus in the slightest.

    I am Jewish I believe in the Torah. They claim ayurvedic medicine is over 5000 years old which means it would be older than the Torah. Since I believe in the Torah it would be contradictory. Since the Torah is not as old as this ayurvedic medicine and yet the most highly respected oldest belief and most well documented I wonder. I believe in herbs by all means. I take some of the herbs mentioned in this thread.

    I have a neurologist next week that is indian that will be pitching a product line based on ayurvedic medicine in the Doctors office I work at. She is claiming it is the best stuff on the market.

  10. I know that some GI doc's now prescribe/rec'd curcumin for Crohn's and other IBD's

    Then you are approaching this issue all wrong. You will have to ask yourself if faith comes first or science(in this case Ayurveda). You can find ample articles on web about how old Ayurveda is..and that may very well be in conflict with Torah. However just as it is not fair for Ayurveda beleiver to call Torah bogus surely you can extend the same courtsey to Ayurveda..no?

  12. The majority of our products are rooted in Ayurvedic medicine. Evolution dictated that all matter on earth is made from the same components - therefore, are bodies are literally made to interact favorably with the flora on our planet. Combine this innate connection with clinical research proving that Ayurvedic treatments are continually outperforming their pharmaceutical counterparts, and it is NOWHERE near bogus.

  16. Ayuvedic, traditional Chinese medicine, and other "natural" healing methods ARE bunk in the sense that they don't understand the real reasons for herbal products working. They explain it with energy channels, elements and other BS instead of the real science.

    It doesn't mean the herbals don't work, it just means the philosophy is total bunk.

    Is this meant as a joke?

  18. Since I believe in GOD and GOD created every thing In this case I believe he also created ayurvedic medicine since in the garden of eden it states we were given herbs which would include these ayurvedic herbs too. The people that believe in this belief also believe in buddha and since the writings of buddha came after the christian beliefs which is way after the torah any way it makes me wonder if its really that old.

  19. "Let the earth sprout grass, seed-yielding herbs, fruit trees bearing fruit of its own kind, with its seed within it, upon the earth."

    "Behold, I have given to you all seed-yielding herbs that are on the surface of the earth, and every tree that has seed-yielding fruit; to you it shall be for food."

    "And for every animal of the earth, for every bird of the heaven, and for everything that creeps on the ground, in which there is a living spirit, all vegetational herbs shall be [their] food." And it was so."

    This is straight from the Torah.

    I think in this situation I would believe in ayurvedic medicine.

    Exactly what I am thinking. Ayurvedic medcine may have been around for 1000's of years but superstition has also been around for 1000's of years. I think herbs with science rational behind the herb is okay. Look at kavakava very popular yet the FDA says its a nono. I take herbs but based on science not because its been around for 1000's of years and thats the only reason.

    I say this in the most non-inflammatory way possible - what the **** are you talking about?

    More or less, that was the most ignorant thing I have read in quite some time. You just grouped ethnic, cultural, religious, and naturopathic beliefs into one ignorant statement - amazing.

    Thats another of the "enlightened" thoughts from someone who is absolutely clueless about Ancient History.

    For starters Ayurveda is NOT Chinese medicine, it is Indian. But even if we speak of Chinese their science was way advanced for its time. Please research on the subject and find when Chinese invented paper, gun powder etc etc. Only recently I saw this programme on History channel where they discovered a Chinese Mummy(you can search on the web for Diva Mummy) that was atleast 2000 years old and it was in such a pristine condition that the Doctors could actually figure out her last meal!! Even with all the modern marvels today's doctors are unable to come up with any good reason how this was possible?

    Bottomline, give credit where its due.

  23. I am completely lost here. The Sanskrit, traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurveda, and so on, offer a comprehensive approach to healing, delving into aspects that Western medicine, even in its finest form, may never match. One category of examples: Adaptogens. Ginseng (in its various forms), Ashwagandha, Rhodiola Rosea, Shilajit, were only recently introduced into Western medicine after thousands of years of daily use in Ayurveda. Take Banaba Extract. Take Horny Goat Weed (yes, the potency of icariin was first observed in a Chinese village), and so so. How can anyone seriously challenge the legitimacy, depth, effectiveness, and comprehensiveness of Ayurvedic medicine???

    Look man now you are being plain dumb. You have all the reason in the world not to use Ayurveda medicine, or beleive in anything prior to Torah(yes please go ahead and forget the Pyramids and Stonehenge while we are at it) but if you call Ayurveda as superstition then you are been plain dumb.

    Indian science was wayyyy advanced for its time. The ZERO that is the core of English mathematics(Roman numerals) was invented in India(also known as Gwalior numeral).

    And by the way whats your issue anyway? It is NOT that your issue is Ayurveda as far as I can see, you are simply toeing the line of your faith that the world started after Torah. This is why I said choose if you beleive in faith or science. Cos if you beleive in latter you can find enough evidence of how life was apparent on other parts of the world much before the timeline you read. If you beleive in the former nothing will convince you.

  25. Cissus is ayurvedic also.

  26. I believe in herbs 100% and I use them every day but I believe the higher power created them not indians and buddha and his beliefs but in Indian Jewish people of the time. I don't believe in buddha being the Messiah. Nor do I believe that hare Krishna was the messiah or people who think they were the 1st.

    I fail to see the relation between your subjective religious beliefs, and the physiological capacity of medicinal herbs?

    Then maybe you need to start reading about history and other cultures.

    Buddha is NOT considered a messiah by Buddhist. I am not sure what gave you that idea but frankly it doesnt surprise me considering your assertions in this thread. As per Buddhist traditions anyone can become a Buddha(literally meaning The Enlightened One). Anyone who follows the right path, does the right deeds will attain the status of moksha(nirvana) and will become a Buddha. So no Buddha was NOT a messiah, its a term that you obviously do not understand.

    The case of Krishna is completely different. He is thought of as God, and he is NOT a messiah. Jesus is considered a messiah but he is NOT God but son of God. Krishna is considered God.

    I am mentioning all of this so you would have some idea of the very jargons and terms you keep throwing randomly. Of course I fail to see what has this discussion got to do with Supplements in the first place.

  29. To add, Buddhists do not consider their teachings a 'religion', but rather, an explanation. They believe in a material dialectic, and adhere to the innate connection of all things.

  30. dj needs his own category on the wall of fame. I hope he doesn't realize how ignorant he is. I would swallow the business end of my revolver if I found out I was that stupid.
