(man-made, normally chemical in nature)

Naturopathic approaches and dietary regulations are made in efforts to cleanse body of toxins.
Agada-tantra
In layman's terms "Rasayan-Tantra" is the medical discipline of lengthening life-span.

Many lifestyle changes are made in effort to lengthen life.

Using Honey for Health
Used for Coughing
The possible health benefits of consuming honey have been documented in early Greek, Roman, Vedic, and Islamic texts and the healing qualities of honey were referred to by philosophers and scientists all the way back to ancient times, such as Aristotle (384 - 322 BC) and Aristoxenus (320 BC).

Honey has high levels of monosaccharides, fructose and glucose, containing about 70 to 80 percent sugar, which gives it its sweet taste - minerals and water make up the rest of its composition.

Honey also possesses antiseptic and antibacterial properties. In modern science we have managed to find useful applications of honey in chronic wound management.

However, it should be noted that many of honey's health claims still require further rigorous scientific studies to confirm them.
