The Process

We practice a meticulous process of content reviewing to bring you articles with a strong backing of a thorough verification and fact-check prior to publishing.

  • Our panel of Ayurvedic doctors analyzes the logical case of problems that are being addressed in the articles and the contextualities of the solutions. They ensure that there is no apparent conflict of interest.
  • The team checks if the article content is not deviating from the fundamental principles of Ayurveda, which are established in Samhitas based on multiple evidence-based studies.

Our ancient Ayurvedic Samhitas are derived from proper clinical trials which were evaluated in five stages:

1. Evidence that is based on therapeutic leads (Aptopadesa)

2. Direct evidence (Pratyaksha)

3. Logical inference (Anumana)

4. Analogy: comparative /control design (Upamana)

5. Reproducible Experimental Evidence (Yukti)

  • The team validates the standard clinical therapies and procedures discussed in the articles to treat different ailments related to hair, skin, and immunity.
  • They also validate the dosage forms, dosages, contraindications, duration of herbal regimens, etc., that are discussed in the articles.
  • They check if the content is also backed by different new-age scientific studies from reliable resources, which further validates the claims mentioned in the articles. They ensure that it is mentioned clearly if it needs more clinical evaluation to determine the efficacy of herbal treatments.
  • They check if the content is explicitly supported by facts and if all the reference links of the original sources have been listed.
  • They ensure that the article content stays updated with the recent studies while the study limitations are also discussed clearly.
  • They check if there is a clear mention of any data on toxicity and side effects warranted by experimental studies.
