Myth: Ayurveda is slow?

It is a popular myth that ayurvedic medicines are slow acting and take longer to heal. There are many fast-acting sometimes even faster than allopathic medicines. Unlike Allopathy, Ayurveda focuses on the host itself rather than the disease. But it depends upon the type of ailment and its ‘age’.

Scorpion sting poison can be removed within a minute. Neuralgia (headache) can be cured within minutes. Toothache can be cured just by the smoke of the seeds of a plant. And, which is more, there will be no more ache from that tooth/teeth.

Blood from a cut or wound can be stopped within seconds. Asthma attacks can also be stopped immediately by herbal smoke. A simple application of a paste of a tuber on the soles of hands and feet, or a root of a plant tied at the waist of the expecting mother having difficulty in childbirth; gave wonderful and immediate results.

Serious concussions in the body from accidents or falls can be cured within 3/4 days. Many diseases were cured by ‘burning’ at a particular part/spot of the body. This practice is forgotten because it was/is considered quackery by the modern system.

Depending upon the type and ‘age’ of the disease/ailment, ayurvedic medicines will take a ‘short’ or ‘long’ time.

The length of Ayurvedic treatment is different for everyone as people have different types of bodies. It also depends upon the severity of the condition you have.

Since Ayurveda aims at balancing the three doshas i. e- Vata, Pitta, and Kapha in the body. It uses herbal therapy to balance the doshas and treat the root cause of the ailment.

Creating balance inside the body with the help of herbs can take time. The best thing is that ayurvedic treatment has no side effects, so you can take the therapy for a longer period of time.
