Purpose of the Medical Advisory Board
We created a Medical Advisory Board to review all the content on the haritaki.org web site, and to recommend new content that would be useful to visitors. All the members of the Medical Advisory Board, in addition to being Board Certified M.D. they have studied in detail different branches of Ayurveda, including the use of Aushadha, neem, turmeric and haritaki. They all have first hand experience of the effects of haritaki on the brain and digestive system.
They also are experts in the mind/body connection and the functioning of the third eye.
There is great concern that web sites such as this can be just a sales tool for a product, our intention is to provide leading edge information on the benefits, uses and side effects of Ayurveda and haritaki in particular.
