Ayurveda is claimed to be the oldest and most complete medical treatises in the world. It is 7000 years old and is now becoming very popular in the West as an alternative form of medicine. The origin of Ayurveda is based on the Vedas (the earliest Hindu texts) which were compiled by ancient Hindu sages or Rishis. The word is derived from the two words ‘ayur’ which means life and ‘veda’ which means eternal wisdom or knowledge. Therefore the word means ‘Knowledge of life’ or ‘Knowledge of a long life’.

 

According to Charaka Samhita, LIFE itself is defined as the ‘’combination of the body, sense organs, mind and soul, the factor responsible for preventing decay and death, which sustains the body over time, and guides the processes of rebirth.’’ It is also the most comprehensive medicine in the world and includes everything from herbal therapy, diet, aromatherapy, therapeutic emesis, blood-letting, oil massage, steam baths, fasting, astrology, Yoga, mudras (hand yoga), meditation, gem stone therapy, colour therapy, and metal therapy.
