  • Herbs with a harmonious and well-balanced effect (so-called TriDosha herbs or herbs with a harmonious balance of Yin-Yang). Such herbs are positive for all systems of regulation (Dosha). As a rule, their effect on the body is very strong.

  • Partially constitutionally suitable herbs - certain herbs properties (Rasa, Guna, Virya, Vipak) can strengthen the constitutionally related tendencies to disease progression. But in a complex usage together with other herbs these herbs will have a beneficial effect on the client. The list is formed individually for each client after assessment with the VedaPulse device.
  • Constitutionally incompatible herbs, when used, will increase the Dosha imbalance in a client. The list is configured individually for each client after assessment on the VedaPulse device.

• The possibility to assess the effect of the whole herbal composition on physiological processes and Dosha Balance

• The Dosha Balance graph reflects the forces of influence of the herbal composition on individual doshas, in the form of arrows of efficacy, increase and decrease, where three arrows mean a potent herbal composition, two are moderately acting, one is weak, no arrow means a neutral effect.

  • From -1 to -3 is a Herbal composition with a weak negative effect.
  • From -3 to -5 is a Herbal composition with a negative effect. It has a negative effect on the psychophysiological processes and the Dosha balance. It is not recommended for use.
  • From -5 to -10 is a Herbal composition with a pronounced negative effect. It has a significant unbalancing effect even with short-term use. It is highly not recommended for use. Even with short-term use, it can lead to serious side effects.

It is necessary to clarify that the individual characteristics of a person, existing diseases, and their sensitivity to the components of medicinal plants should be taken into account.
