Ayurveda or the Indian system of medicine is perhaps the oldest system of medicine and treatment in the world. We can trace back the history of the principles of Ayurveda to the Indus Valley civilization or even before it. But those medical practices didn’t bare the name Ayurveda. It was from the Vedic age, after the advent of Aryans, Ayurveda got its nomenclature and independent status. The Vedic age revolutionized the world culture by the four Vedas, Rig, Yajur, Sama and Adharva. Ayurveda with its concise format is actually the part of the fourth Veda, Adharava. But from the time of the world famous Vaidya (physician) and a master surgeon, Sushruta, that Ayurveda developed into a vast ocean of medical science. His contributions were supplemented and complimented by Charaka, the other end master surgeon and physician. Together they changed the zodiac signs of medical science.
Ayurveda, also like Unani, believes that human body is balanced by humors. In Ayurveda, it is distinctly asserted that three humors are vata, pitta and kapha .The balancing of these three creates the perfect health and imbalance creates ailments. An ailment stricken person, after detailed examination -physical and mental, by an Ayurveda vaidya does not only undergo a treatment of that particular disease but he is empowered with a holistic way to relieve from complete imbalancing, his body and mind suffer.
Ayurveda has 8 branches. They are :
Agni – The digestive fire in the body is represented by the word kaya, which is responsible for the metabolism in the body. The imbalancing of this Agni creates the external and internal havocs in the body. Fever, diarrhoea, cough etc are cured by treating Agni.
Kaumara-bhrtya or Bala chikitsa forms an independent part of Ayurveda which deals with the treatment of children.
It is the treatment of diseases which affect ears, nose and mouth.
It deals with the surgical procedures as mentioned in Sushruta Samhita. Different types of surgeries like cataract, kidney stones, piles and even perforations of abdomen are done.
Management and treatment of psychiatric diseases like unmada and apasmara are executed in this branch of Ayurveda. Apart from herbal treatments, yoga, pranayama, mantra chikitsa, and special diet are used in it.
It is the branch of Ayurveda which studies and treats the toxins or poisons in the human body.
The ageing process of human beings can be curtailed by the execution of this chikitsa. A long, healthy rejuvenated life is the product of this treatment. Longevity, memory, complexion, strength of senses are its by products.
Ayurveda considers sex as one of the pertinent and divine aspects of life. This branch is dedicated to sex, treatment of its deceased conditions, infertility problems, enhancement of the reproductive fluid in the body.
