Ayurveda is the science beyond just medicine – it is a science about life and living. Ayurvedic principles can be followed by anyone without having to actually alter anything major in life. Ayurveda has simple philosophies which can make human beings bond with nature and live a wholesome and holistic life.
The Ayurvedic lifestyle also promotes the usage of herbs and plants for all sorts of medical treatments. According to Ayurveda, there is nothing that cannot be cured with herbs in the right proportion and a good lifestyle.
Herbal tablets, capsules, and herbal oils made from plant and natural extracts are the very core of Ayurvedic Medicine that helps in promoting well-being without the side effects and complications of western medicine, which contains numerous chemicals.
What are Herbal Tablets and How are they made?
Herbal Tablets are made from herbal extracts that are carefully chosen to target specific problems in the body. Each and every derivative of a plant or a tree is very useful as there are many medicinal values attached to every part of a plant or tree.
Ayurvedic practitioners studied the characters and properties of these plants and herbs for years together and experimented with them to gain knowledge about their medicinal values and to bring about medicines with these herbs.
Initially, ayurvedic practitioners would handpick these herbs themselves and cleanse them and make herbal tablets and herbal oils from them by grinding them together in careful measurements and making small pellets out of them.
The ground paste would then be used in making medicated herbal oils and for lepam – which is a paste-like formulation that can be used as an ointment for various purposes. This is how ayurvedic herbal tablets, oils, and other kinds of herbal medicines were made in earlier times.
Herbal Tablets are now made with scientific methods but follow the same ayurvedic principles. Ayurvedic textbooks and measurements are considered carefully to choose herbs from organically grown gardens and then are combined in the right proportions.
Machines are used to grind them and combine them to make tablets and capsules that are then bottled and sold. Even though modern technology is used in the preparation and packaging process, the same ayurvedic traditions and principles are followed by the companies to make effective herbal tablets and other ayurvedic medicines.
