Ayurveda is the system of medicine that is oldest and holistic that aims at the prevention of any diseases thus adding long years of joyful and healthy life to a person. Unlike other practices of modern medicines it doesn’t treat the body alone but the mind as well.
It evolved in India about 5000 years ago. Ayurveda is a term composed of two Sanskrit words ‘Ayur’ and ‘Veda’. Ayur means lifespan and veda means knowledge or the science of life. Ayurveda is considered as a boon that is given by the gods to mankind through sages and saints who practiced deep meditation.
Scriptures of knowledge called Vedas were believed to be written by Veda Vyasa, a sage. These contain complete information about this ancient treatment methodology. It’s not just a science of treatment but the science of living a healthy life without any diseases.
There are mainly 4 scriptures of knowledge (Vedas): Rigveda, Samaveda, Yajurveda and Atharvaveda. Ayurveda is a major subsection of Atharvaveda.
Three doshas of vata, pitta and kapha doshas are maintained in balance. Atharva veda depicts on the major 8 divisions of anatomy like surgery, medicine, psychiatry, ophthalmology, pediatrics, toxicology, fertility, etc. Ayurveda uses a variety of herbs, foods, mantras, yoga, lifestyle that has an individuality of its own. Those who learned these Vedas and practiced this art of healing were called vaidyas.
Ayurveda was made a more reliable and classified system of medicine by dividing it into Atreya and Dhanvantari. Atreya constituted the physicians and Dhanvantri the surgeons. These made Ayurveda more scientific and classic.
Numerous learned people and scholars from all over the world came to India to learn Ayurveda and about the scriptures. Ayurveda was reorganised by two pioneers Charak and Sushrut.
Charak samhita and Sushrut samhita are their individual contributions. These works still exist today and hence Ayurveda can be termed the only medical system that stands complete.
