Thanks nilanjana I would like to add that the history of ayurveda points out the celestial origin of this ancient science, which was once communicated to the Indian saints and sages. State of the art healing system, ayurveda thus boasts a prosperous history which is again enhanced by the myths and legends of the God of healing, Divodosa Dhanvantari. Myths unfold that Dhanvanatri, who later penned down Ayurveda, taught it to the sages. While according to another legend, the knowledge of healing originated from Brahma who taught it to Daksha, who further taught Indra. It was the time of restlessness when disease and death were creating havocs and human had no answer. It was this time when all great sages in order to find solution to this problem gathered. During this meeting sage Bharadvaja came forward and learnt the ancient science of ayurveda from Indra. He then taught this science to Atreya- who further transmitted this knowledge throughout world. The history of ayurveda states that later, it was Agnivesh , the disciples of Atreya wrote Agnivesha Samhita which is still considered as the most comprehensive form of Ayurveda. Hence began the journey of this holistic method as a well reputed treatment procedure whilst boasting the rich history of ayurveda.

Ayurveda , the science of life is a system of traditional medicine native to India, and practiced in other parts of the world as a form of alternative medicine. In Sanskrit, the word Ayurveda comprises the words ā yus, meaning life and veda, meaning science . Evolving throughout its history, Ayurveda remains an influential system of medicine in South Asia. The earliest literature of Ayurveda appeared during the Vedic period in India. The Sushruta Samhita and the Charaka Samhita were influential works on traditional medicine during this era. Ayurvedic practitioners also claim to have identified a number of medicinal preparations and surgical procedures for curing various ailments and diseases. Ayurveda believes in five great elements Devanā garī : प ं च त त ् व ‌ earth, water, fire, air and space forming the universe, including the human body. Chyle, Blood, flesh, fat, bone, marrow, and semen are believed to be the seven primary constituent elements Devanā garī : स प ् त ध ा त ु of the body. Ayurveda stresses a balance of three substances: wind/spirit/air, phlegm, and bile, each representing divine forces. According to Ayurvedic beliefs, the doctrine of these three Doshas Devanā garī : त ् र ि द ॊ श ् vata wind/spirit/air , pitta bile and kapha phlegm is important. Traditional beliefs hold that humans possess a unique constellation of Doshas. In Ayurveda, the human body has 20 Guna Devanā garī : ग ु न , meaning quality . Surgery and surgical instruments are employed. It is believed that building a healthy metabolic system, attaining good digestion, and proper excretion leads to vitality. Ayurveda also focuses on exercise, yoga, meditation, and massage. The concept of Panchakarma Devanā garī : प ं च क र ् म ‌ is believed to eliminate toxic elements from the body. Eight disciplines of Ayurveda treatment, called Ashtanga Devanā garī : अ ष ् ट ा ं ग , are given below: Surgery Shalya-chikitsa . Treatment of diseases above the clavicle Salakyam . Internal medicine Kaaya-chikitsa . Demonic possession Bhuta vidya : Ayurveda believes in demonic intervention and as a form of traditional medicine identifies a number of ways to counter the supposed effect of these interferences. Bhuta vidya has been called psychiatry. Paediatrics Kaumarabhrtyam . Toxicology Agadatantram . Prevention and building immunity rasayanam . Aphrodisiacs Vajikaranam . Ayurveda is considered to be a form of complementary and alternative medicine CAM within the western world, where several of its methods such as herbs, massage, and Yoga as exercise or alternative medicine are applied on their own as a form of CAM treatment

Before the wisdom of Ayurveda was recorded in the texts it was transmitted orally from teacher to disciples. Veda Vyasa, the famous sage and avatar of Vishnu, compiled the complete knowledge of Ayurveda in writing into a body of scriptural literature known as the Vedic literature. The Vedic literature was divided into four main books or Vedas- Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Yajur Veda and Atharva Veda. The Rig Veda refers to the cosmology known as Sankhya, contains the text on the nature of health and disease and the principles used in the treatment of these diseases. Rig Veda shows the discussions on three doshas- vitta, pitta, kapha and the use of various herbs in the treatment of diseases of mind and body. The fourth of the series Atharva Veda dates back to around 1000 B.C. and has listed the eight divisions of Ayurveda. The knowledge about all these eight divisions of Ayurveda was systemized with the origin of Ashtanga Ayurveda around 800-600 B.C. This Ashtanga Ayurveda must have served as the ground or basis on which the new knowledge regarding the eight divisions was formed.
