I asked an Indian GI about
ayuvedic treatments and he said that a lot of them contain steroids, so it's really not natural and it's just best to stick with westernized meds. I personally wouldn't try them for that reason--we don't know what exactly is in them. The only "desi" thing that has medical backing is turmeric since it is an anti-inflammatory.
