HISTORY OF AYURVEDA
Ayurveda dates back to almost the times of Hindu Mythology. Dhanvantri was the physician of the gods, who gave the term Ayurveda.
It is a branch of medical science that was invented 5000 years ago in the Indian subcontinent. Products from plants, animals and mineral sources are used to make medicines.
It is a part of the Atharva Veda which is one of the four Vedas. Ayurveda in Sanskrit means the knowledge of life. Maharishi Charka is known as the father of Ayurveda as he was the main contributors to Ayurveda.
This is a traditional Hindu system of medicine, incorporated in the Atharva Veda.
During the times Ayurveda was prevalent, there weren't any fancy machines to provide help in the diagnosis of a condition. Ayurveda is keenly based on observation of one's body. Previously, noticing the irregular heart impulses a doctor could diagnose a patient, with specific diseases.
