Hello And Greetings From Aurvedic Cure

First of all let me make one thing clear that Ayurvedic treatment is one of the oldest and most authentic traditional system of medicine as explained in our Vedas. As far as use f heavy metals is concerned like mercury, Lead, gold iron etc so that is used after purifying and within therapeutic range to benefit people. They are not used in the raw form that a person should be afraid of consuming. As The procedures adopted in purifying these metals and making it consumable are medically approved by Indian system of medicine and are well explained in various Ayurveic Texts.

People who are generally not aware about ayurveda and its procedures usually get trapped by such type of myth about the use of metals in ayurvedic products.

Thank you Support
