The Role Of Pharmaceutical Solutions in Ayurveda and Other Modern Medical Systems

Pharmaceutical Solutions and Ayurveda in India are often confused with one another. Both of these systems deal with the use of medicines and other treatments and the resultant cure, which are achieved by treating a person with an illness or disease by means of medicines and other medical interventions. Pharmaceutical Solutions in Indian system of Ayurveda is focused on providing the cure through medicinal means while Ayurveda in India is centered on spiritual cures. Pharmaceutical solutions and Ayurveda in India are both centered on the concept of detoxification, which is a part of Ayurveda treatment process. In the pharmaceutical solutions the therapeutic agents are dissolved in a non-metallic base such as solvents, alcohols, non-water solvents, etc. where as in the ayurvedic formulations the therapeutic agents are dissolved in the pure essential oils or liquors, which have properties that can cure the illness. This can be achieved by mixing the oil in the pure solvent, which will then penetrate into the body of the person who is to be treated thereby giving the desired solution. Pharmaceutical solutions or therapeutic agents. For an example let us take the anticoagulant properties of the anticoagulant Cationic surfactants used in Ayurveda therapies; these anticoagulants are dissolved in the pure, cationic surfactant water, which will then pass through the blood stream into the capillaries, which will in turn remove the unwanted deposits of cholesterol and triglycerides in the body which are responsible for the accumulation of cellular growth and tissue damage. In this case it can be clearly seen that the pharmaceutical solutions are safer and more effective than the ayurvedic formulations. Another case to illustrate this point is the use of sodium hypochlorite (used in the medical management of acidity and osteoporosis) in the manufacture of prescription drugs. Sodium Hypochlorite is very dangerous as it produces a poisonous gas when mixed with oxygen; hence this is not to be mixed with the therapeutic solutions of sodium hypochlorite in the manufacture of prescriptive drugs.
