As we have seen in Chikitsa Padah, the medicine’s role is crucial in the success of a treatment.
We work with only old, proven, trusted and renowned companies and people having a thorough understanding of Ayurveda, a profound respect for the herbs and plants and mastering the art of collecting it and preparing it so that their potential is maximum.
Many herbs are only available in regions that are hard to reach or are becoming rare due to their over extensive usage, or also improperly prepared and collected so that their potency is less efficient. All that is taken in account when choosing a medicine as herb safeguard is a major deal for our future.
We use different kind of preparations and formulations such as Churna ( powders ), tablets, capsules, Asavas and Arishtas ( alcoholic preparations ), Ghee and tailam ( oil ) preparations, sometimes processed with specific decoctions, milk, meat or cow urine and buried in the ground for months,etc.
Mainly, the medicine are herbal compounds but for specific and very advanced diseases, an herbo-mineral medicine can be advised or required. First, it is important to know how minerals work in the body. This is something that modern science has no tool to understand or prove. Minerals undergo a purification process in order to make them bioavailable. This word is key to apprehend how it will effectively work in the body.
As no disease and no person is the same, this uniqueness creates a wide variety of medicine that only a wise and experimented Doctor will be able to select accordingly.

Good manufacturing practice (GMP) is that part of quality assurance which ensures that products are consistently produced and controlled to the quality standards appropriate to their intended use and as required by the marketing authorization. GMP is aimed primarily at diminishing the risks inherent in any pharmaceutical production, which may broadly be categorized in two groups: cross contamination/mix-ups and false labelling. Above all, manufacturers must not place patients at risk due to inadequate safety, quality or efficacy; for this reason, risk assessment has come to play an important role in WHO quality assurance guidelines.
