It is a popular perception prevailing throughout the globe that, the traditional practices (let it be Ayurveda, Siddha or Unani) doesn't produce any adverse effects. The utilization of thesed drugs since thousands of years itself supports this notion. But, in present scenario, increased globalization of these practices has raised concerns about their safey and efficacy, whichcreated doubts on Indian heritage.
