Ayurveda Introduction & Guide

Ayurveda, the ancient Indian medical practice, follows a traditional approach in healing various ailments. This traditional system of medicine is based on anthropological and naturopathic beliefs. Among the various Samhitas mentioned in ancient literature, Sushruta Samhita is the one written by Sushruta. Sushruta mentioned that Dhanavantari, the god of Hindu incarnated himself as a king of Varanasi who taught Ayurvedic medicine to a group of physicians along with Sushruta himself. Ayurveda and ayurvedic therapies have been evolved over the years. Ayurvedic medicine (AM) is gaining popularity in day to day life for keeping various aspects of safety, efficacy, stability, and quality and thus providing good health and well-being. Even though Ayurvedic therapies tend to have lower side effects and minimal contraindications, it is insufficiently appreciated by western medicine in India and almost every country.
