Ayurved is all about using the natural things to bring the nature of body back. We use all herbs, minerals in Ayurved. But in many of the cases we need to prepare the medicines in a proper way so that these can give proper results in the treatment of any condition. If we have trained physicians but not the good quality medicines it is like fighting a war with best soldiers of the world-without weapons.
We understand that- quality of the medicines is an important thing for the treatment and we work hard to control the quality of the medicines. We cannot “prepare” all medicines so we procure the best quality medicines from different pharma companies of Ayurved.
According to Ayurved, a single medicine can be poisonous if not used properly and this is the duty of a physician only to ensure the quality of the medicine. As Charak Says….
योगादपि विषं तीक्ष्णमुत्तमं भेषजं भवेत् ! भेषजं चापि दुर्युक्तं तीक्ष्णं संपद्यते विषम !!
तस्मान्न भिषजा युक्तं युक्तिबाह्येन भेषजं ! धीमता किन्चिदादेयम जिवितारोग्याकंक्षिनान !!
This stanza from Charak says that drug and poison are same things, there is no difference in these two. This is the way of using these which decides the course and effect of medicine whether it will help a patient or will do some harm to the patient.
यथा विषं यथा शस्त्र्म यथाग्निरशनिर्यथा ! तथौषधमविज्यतम विज्ञाताममृतं यथा!!
Medicine, Poison, Weapon, Fire these all are same it depends on the person who is using these that what will be the result of these.
