In ayurveda all naturally available things are used as medicines. For example water, mud, sand, plants and their parts, animals and their parts, minerals,... and the list becomes infinite. These naturally available things exhibit different medicinal properties when used singly or in combination. Even a single natural thing acts differently in different physical conditions. For example- Plain water exhibits different medicinal properties when it is hot / boiled and cooled / cold.
