Ayurveda originated in India long back in pre-vedic period. Rigveda and Atharva-veda ( 5000 years B.C.), the earliest documented ancient Indian knowledge have references on health and diseases. Ayurved texts like Charak Samhita and Sushruta Samhita were documented about 1000 years B.C. The term Ayurveda means ‘Science of Life’. It deals elaborately with measures for healthful living during the entire span of life and its various phases.
Ayurveda is a holistic approach, taking the body, mind and spirit in unison, including the emotions and psychology, to shape up whatever is in entropy with the forces of nature – the sages of ancient India knew this to be the only solution to the questions of health.
The secret of Ayurveda cuddles in the Vedic womb of ancient India. Ayurvedic texts were even translated in Arabic and under physicians such as Avicenna and Razi Sempion – both of whom quoted Indian Ayurvedic texts – flourished Islamic medicine. In 16th Century Europe, Paracelsus, who is eulogized as the father of modem Western medicine, practiced and propagated a system of medicine, strongly resembling the steps of Ayurveda.
