I'm a holistic healer, an Ayurvedic professional. Ayurveda is an ancient medical science of India (dating centuries back). While I thought to join Health stack exchange to provide tips from my 8 yr of medical experience, it seems that users here are more interested in asking for 'references' than believing 'age old' science.
Ayurveda is an alternative medicine with little scientific or laboratory evidences of scientific researches, laboratory testings, animal testings and so on. If I say that yoga helps in 'x' thing, I mean it. Because we have the results. Finding how yoga works with parasympathetic or sympathetic nervous system, how herbs penetrate a human cell and how do they work on hypothalamus to bring down fever will be not only difficult but amusing!
Alternative medicines work like 'dogmas'. Believe it (as it is actually a personal evidence based medicine) or leave it.
Having said that, observing the number of 'downvotes' to my answers simply because 'no scientific evidence' provided, I feel that I should deregister from this site.
Your opinion (preferably from disinterested people/moderator) will be appreciated.
