Ayurvedic medicine: I am not an Ayurvedic practitioner. However, I do believe that many alternative therapies can have overall beneficial effects on a person's well being. This, in turn, may translate into better response to traditional treatments. I don't know if anyone can give a definitive answer to your question, but if a person feels calmer, better, with alt. therapies, this can only be a good thing!
