Ayurvedic Medicines & Practice

Ayurvedic medicine is a system of traditional medicine native to India. In Sanskrit, words Ayus means longevity, and Veda means science. The earliest literature on Indian medical practice appeared during the mid-second millennium B.C. The Suśruta Saṃhitā and the Caraka Saṃhitā are encyclopedias of medicine compiled from various sources from the mid-first millennium B.C. to about 500 A.D. They are among the foundational works of Ayurveda.

Over the following centuries, Ayurvedic practitioners developed a number of medicinal preparations and surgical procedures for the treatment of various ailments. The overall theory of Ayurvedic medicine is that health exists when there is a balance between three fundamental bodily Doshas called Vata, Pitta and Kapha which are so closely identical with that of TCM: Metal, Wood, Water, Fire and Earth. The development of Ayurvedic medicine generally coincided along the similar path of progress to that of Traditional Chinese Medicine. These two historically and culturally bestowed countries had profound knowledge to well utilize herbal stuff since long time ago.

Ayurvedic medicine is one of the world’s oldest medical systems. It has evolved India over thousands of years and naturally spreading around the neighboring countries such as Nepal. We respect the heritage of Ayurvedic medicine system just like we do to  TCM.
