Concern over ayurvedic products

I first came across the notion of ayurvedic products in Gillian McKeith's book. Now there is to be testing of imported ayurvedic products in the US after heavy metals like lead were found in potentially harmful quantities.

It's probably an alarmist reaction but why would you take this rubbish in the first place? And why is an 'expert' like 'Dr' Gillian recommending it? Perhaps because if it's a conventional medical treatment, it's part of a failed Western paradigm foisted upon us by the drug companies. And if it's Eastern, it's got thousands of years of use behind it. And failure, too, no doubt.
