Ayurveda is an art and science of healthy livings which is originated from the Veda. It is considered as 5th Veda and Upaveda of Atharva Veda. Documentation of Ayurveda started about 1500 BC by Agnivesha, author of Charaka Samhita and hundreds of literary works available on this science, mainly in Sanskrit language. Atreya – Charaka Sampradaya (School of Medicine) and Dhanwantari – Sushruta Sampradaya (School of Surgery) are the two main schools of knowledge and it is further spread out in 8 clinical disciplines for the first time in medical history.

Ayurveda has holistic approach as opposed to super specialization. Ayurveda gives more importance for individual and his Prakriti (constitution) for planning his diet and life style. It advocates the concepts of Samadosha - Samadhatu - Samagni (homeostasis) which is the basis of health. It has deep belief in harmony of life with nature and spirituality respecting balance with ecology by prescribing natural medicines to which body system is geared up through predisposition. It also gives the way to come out from hazardous effect of synthetic therapeutic agents.

Ayurvedic approaches are useful in present era and many ancient techniques are still being offered to accomplish the goals of treatment like to strengthen immune system, effective detoxification system, to buildup responsive inflammatory system, to make functioning of metabolic system at optimal level etc. It also provides the concept to balance regulatory system, to enhance regenerative system and over all to harmonize the life forces.
