How Do Ayurvedic Herbs Work?

Ayurveda was first practiced by holy men, who would live their entire life in the jungle; meditating and praying and who did not have any means to provide for food and medicines but the plants and roots found in the woods.
Ayurvedic herbs are made out of leaves, bark, roots and plants found in the Asian jungles, where they grow free of chemicals and pesticides. These herbs work with the immune system to fight the diseases or improve the natural state of mind and thus, provide harmony of the body and mind. Ayurvedic herbs are administered orally, applied on wounds directly or inhaled depending on your need and suffering.
