Invitation for Next Issue
Āyurveda has its origins in the Vedic era and is one of the oldest known medical systems in the world.. The herbs used in Āyurveda for treatment find mention in the Vedas. As a system of medicine, Āyurveda has sustained itself through the ages despite newer forms of healthcare systems having made its inroads into the scenario. Though historically considered to be part of Atharva Veda, yet mention of ailments and curative herbs is also found in, the oldest Veda, the ṚgVeda. Reference to ailments and relevant medicinal plants are found in the verses of the Atharva Veda. Caraka Samhitā and Suśruta samhitā are the earliest documented forms of the codes and regulations regarding Āyurveda. Caraka Samhitā, considered to be descended from the Ātreya tradition, mainly concerns itself with internal medicine. On the other hand, it is claimed that Dhanvantari passed down and spread the Suśruta legacy which is associated with surgical methods and techniques. Fundamentally eternal and unchanging across time are the tenets of the Ayurvedic medical system. Instead of extrinsic human elements, these basics are based on internal human aspects. Although the environment, human behaviour, and society can all change, people never do. Changes in the environment, novel lifestyles, and novel interests all have the ability to affect how a disease develops or manifests itself. Disease, however, spreads swiftly, and if an individual shares the majority of their ancestor's characteristics, then their reactions to the illness, as well as its indications and symptoms, will be the same. Although the format of the methods employed to treat the sickness may differ, however the fundamental methodology of treatment of disease remains the same. Āyurveda is not necessarily a scientific discipline but is more importantly a holistic approach towards living a healthy life which includes personal and social hygiene along with approaches towards prevention of diseases. Of late Āyurveda has gained importance and focus has been given to a lot of research.
