Thinking of ayurvedic medication? Think again. Doctors warn that ayurvedic medicines may contain high levels of toxic metals, which could lead to poisoning, besides leading to side effects like depression, memory loss, loss of sensation and renal failure.

Various city nephrologists, neurologists and endocrinologists come across cases where patients opt for ayurvedic medication, and it worsens their condition.

Experts feel most people assume that ayurvedic medicines do not have side effects. However cases have shown contaminated and badly prepared medicines can be harmful.

There is also the issue that many treatments have not been proven to work for the conditions they have been prescribed or any other conditions.
