Today I am going to talk about ‘Ayurveda’ which is a system of medicine with historical roots in the Indian sub-continent. Various Ayurvedic products have healed people of many ailments and also helped in enhancing a holistic well being of an individual since past many centuries. The main classical Ayurveda texts begin with accounts of the transmission of medical knowledge from the Gods to sages, and then to human physicians. It is believed that Dhanvantari, the Hindu God of Ayurveda, incarnated himself as the king of Varanasi and taught medicine to a group of physicians. The tradition has been followed till now and the people throughout the world use these therapies for various afflictions. Ayurveda regards physical existence, mental existence and personality as a unit, with each element being able to influence the other. It uses plant based treatments which may be derived from roots, leaves, fruits, barks or seeds of plants such as cardamom, cinnamon, basil, ginger, lemon etc. It is one of the few systems of medicine developed in the ancient times that is still widely practiced in the modern times. There are many companies like Dabur and Patanjali which are producing products based on Ayurveda for many years. Ayurveda is a part of the Indian National health care system with state hospitals for Ayurveda established across the country.
