urved- The Science of Life

“Ayurvedic medicine is a system of Hindu
traditional medicine native to the Indian
subcontinent and a form of alternative
medicine. The oldest known Ayurvedic
texts are the Suśrutha Saṃhitā and the
Charaka Saṃhitā. These Classical Sanskrit
texts are among the foundational and
formally compiled works of Ayurveda. By
the medieval period, Ayurvedic
practitioners developed a number of
medicinal preparations and surgical
procedures for the treatment of various
ailments. In the last few decades, Ayurveda
has spread throughout the World. Up to 80
percent of people in India use some form
of traditional medicine, a category which
includes Ayurveda.”
