After the herbal medication has been prepared it can be used in many different ways. It can be used after boiling into a brew or as a powder after the herbal element has been reduced to an ash. It can also be used by leaching out salts from the herb. Salts thus produced from many different herbs can also be combined into a single medicine for specific kinds of ailments. The prescriptive use of these medications is often harmonized by the Ayurvedic doctor according to the age, diet and lifestyle of the patient. Video clips in this section show interviews on how different Ayurvedic doctors think about the use they put these medicines to.
