One of the most famous hymns, The Healing Plants in Rig Veda (10-97), states that herbs, and amulets made out of them, could work wonders for health. They could treat almost every disease, flush out poisons from the blood, and even contribute to one’s progress and prosperity in life. The Western world is now using Indian herbs in some of their popular medicines for jaundice and heart problems.
