What is Ayurveda
The Ayurvedic medical system is known as the most complete healing system throughout the world. The magnitude of what this means and the body of knowledge it encompasses are yet unknown ant not so fully understood in today’s society. In short it can be described as esoteric in its nature.

Ayurveda has been the root to almost all-medical disciplines, philosophy and treatment throughout eastern civilisation. Since its birth, some 5000 years ago, in India, Ayurveda has been passed down from successive generation to generation and simply become a way of life for millions. The eastern man has grown up with Ayurveda, tasted it as a child, reaped its benefits as an adult and passed on its wisdom to his own children. Ayurveda has almost become the eastern man’s best friend, having integrated it into his life; both have lived and continue to do so in harmonic symbiosis.

The origins of Ayurveda are shrouded in Indian mythology. ‘MAHABRAHMA’ (the Hindu god of creation) is said to have communicated this system of healing to a number of enlightened and distinguished personalities. Among them are two individuals known as ‘CHARAKA’, who founded internal medicine and ‘SUSHRUTHA’, who comes from the ‘DHANWANTARA’ school of surgeons

The word Ayurveda has derived from AYU and VEDA. This word ‘AYURVEDA’ originates from the ancient language of Sanskrit,AYU means life VEDA means Science or knowledge. That means the science of life. Charaka Samhitha (One of the classical text book in ayurveda litruture )defines "That science is designated as Ayurveda where advantageous and disadvantageous as well as happy and unhappy states of life along with what is good and bad for life, its measurement and the life itself are described " (Charaka Sutra 1 - 4) Ayurveda embrace all living things, animate and inanimate. It is divided into three main branches Viz.
