Some of the many myths associated with Ayurveda
Ayurveda is not scientific
Ayurveda takes a long time to act
Ayurvedic medicines are filled with heavy metals
The Orphan’s Father sets out to address and dispel these and other myths that have been propagated about Ayurveda. It also strives to showcase the ability of Ayurveda as a system of medicine to act as a great preventive system by promoting wellness. As is painfully evident from the Covid-19 pandemic, it is a given that most people will eventually be exposed to the virus. Being able to fight off the virus without falling sick or maybe just a mild illness will be the ideal situation. Many people have already succumbed to the disease. BUT a far greater number of people have successfully recovered without too much of a fuss. The difference between these two sets of people? Their Immunity! The only way to build immunity (other than a vaccine, which is very specific to one particular disease) is over a long term and by eating right and following the right exercise regimen and using the correct supplements. Enter Ayurveda To The Rescue!!! This is because the Ayurvedic approach to wellness is all-encompassing and includes the right dietary habits and food, appropriate exercise and ayurvedic supplements (known as rasayanas) are the only solution to promote and maintain WELLNESS. Though not formally trained in Ayurveda, the author has been learning Ayurveda for the last 12 years (from his father who learnt from his grandfather who in turn learnt from the author’s great grandfather) via the parampara method of learning. The author hopes that this book serves to clarify various doubts the reader may have about Ayurveda and dispel many common myths associated with Ayurveda. This book is NOT a technical treatise. It is however, a quick, short peep through the keyhole into the wondrous world of Ayurveda.
