Ayurvedic pharmacy. Interior view of an Ayurvedic (traditional Indian medicine) pharmacy. The shelves are filled with glass jars containing herbal remedies such as oils, tonics, powdered and loose herbs. On the counter (at lower left) are plastic vessels and paper to weigh and package herbal remedies. Ayurvedism uses herbal remedies to treat disorders. It is based on empirical observation and practice, in contrast to the philosophical basis of Chinese medicine. Traditional ayurvedism used both herbalism and surgical techniques, although this has largely been replaced by Western medicine. Photographed in Bombay, India.
