Fear of the Unknown: Dispelling the Myths of Ayurveda

As human beings we are programmed to fear what we don’t know much about.  We fear the dark, have always been fascinated by the stars and constantly question the  Superpower – these are things we cannot explain.  Ayurveda as a science has had a similar fate over the last few centuries across the globe. Until the mid 90s it was seen as a mystic science that rural consumers in India used for lack of better alternatives. This was during a time when allopathy was reigning supreme and taking control of Indian consumers. With allopaths not knowing much about the science, the easiest thing to do was to dismiss it. Ayurveda was losing its relevance and the 1000s of years of painstaking research that went into it seemed to be going into oblivion.
