dc.description.abstractAmerica has recently seen a rise in the interest, study, and use of natural remedies in conjunction with the advantages that modern medicine provides. However, there is contention concerning the validity of such natural remedies due to their use for millennia before modern science and technology were able to validate the benefits of such medicinal treatment. This thesis examines the scientific literature of several key spices and herbs used in Ayurvedic medicine—black pepper, cinnamon, fenugreek, garlic, ginger, St. John’s wort, and turmeric—to determine the chemical and biochemical validity of the use of such natural components. Based on the substantial literature supporting the physiological advantages of the use of such, an argument is made for the role of natural remedies in preventative and affordable care in the practice of modern American medicine.en_US
