The Benefits of Ayurvedic Medicine: Agastya Rasayanam

Agasthya-RasayanamAgastya Rasayanam, also known as Agastya Haritaki (Hareetaki) Vasasyana, is an Ayurvedic medicine famously used to treat asthma and other chronic respiratory conditions. Agastya Rasayanam, which is comprised of multiple Ayurvedic herbs, including shati and bala, is also useful as a rejuvenative.

If not addressed, rasa depletion may result in lowered vitality, lowered immunity, and chronic health issues.

And while Pregnancy hemorrhoids can be averted with a maternity support and anal sex hemorrhoids can be averted with proper training or abstinence, hard, dry stools require greater effort to prevent.
