“When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use,
when diet is correct, medicine is of no need...”


Ayurveda is an ancient medical science developed around 5000BC.It is based on some observational concepts which have stood the test of time for thousands of years. The origin of Ayurveda is from Vedas(Atharvaveda) which are the ancient books of knowledge, or science of life. Vedas contain practical and scientific information on various subjects like health, philosophy, astrology, architecture etc. The word Ayurveda is a Sanskrit term meaning “science of life”. Ayu means life or daily living, and Veda means knowledge or science. Life according to Ayurveda is a combination of senses, mind, body and soul. Ayurveda considers the physical, mental and spiritual well being of a person to become healthy.

Ayurveda is a way of life rather than a medical science. Ayurveda helps the healthy person to maintain his/her health and diseased person to regain his/her health. Ayurveda explains about one’s diet, daily routine, life style and activities to be followed on a daily basis and according to the climatic changes, age and individual potency to keep himself healthy. The practice of Ayurveda is designed to promote human happiness, health ,human happiness,health and progression of healthy generation.Ayurveda defines 'health' as, not just a physical entity but physical, mental and spiritual well being of an individual with whole Doshas in harmony

According to Ayurveda there are 3 types of energies called Vata, Pitha and Kapha which, always flow in our body and maintain all normal bodily functions such as digestion, circulation, respiration etc. It has role to maintain mental health and memory also. These 3 energies are capable of maintaining the normal bodily functions when they are in a balanced state. The balanced state and imbalance of these energies can be understood by different signs and symptoms. Treatment is basically balancing the energies with medicines, diet recommendations, physical and mental exercises, external /internal therapeutic procedures etc. The balance of these three denotes health and imbalance of these proceeds to ill health or disease.

Treatment in AYURVEDA aims at treating the disease by addressing its root cause, preventing its possible recurrence and ensuring overall well being. Medicines are prepared from natural sources like herbs, minerals, animal origin drugs etc which undergo a series of scientific purification process called as “shodhana”, to remove impurities and toxicity if any and is made into nano form which is easily digested and assimilated by our body, without any side effects when administered along with suitable scientific diet and regimen(pathya). This century old scientific wisdom of AYURVEDA has stood through the test of time for years, successfully serving health to the needy, as it is a system bonding with nature.


In India, development and growth of such a body of knowledge known as Ayurveda, meaning science of life, was coeval with the growth and evolution of Indian civilization and culture. Vedas, which are considered to be the repositories of recorded Indian culture, have a mention of this knowledge both in theoretical and practical form. There is discussion of theories about the composition of living and non-living matter, the physical, biochemical, biological, psychological and spiritual components of man and the vital motive forces working both inside and outside the body.

In other ancient works there is mention of such current medical subjects like anatomy, physiology, aetiology, pathology, treatment and environmental factors. This medical knowledge has been the hardwork of ancient scholarly sages. It is the out-come of the great power of observation, generalization and analysis combined with patient labour ,investigators,experimentations etc over thousands of years.

This knowledge has played so important part in the development of Indian culture that, it has been documented in an integrated form in the Vedas which are considered to have been originated from Gods. Most of this mythological and medico-religious genesis of Ayurveda is even today shrouded in the mist of antiquity.
