If science is termed as wonder then Ayurveda must be catalogued as a miracle.
Ayurveda, a discipline of the vedic tradition’s upaveda, has inherited the goodness of nature to bring out the best possible solution for every health disorder. This Vedic medical healing technique consists of every secret of nature that makes our mind, body and soul in perfect equilibrium with it.
Charaka, the scholar of Ayurveda, kept a close look over the science of life and eventually, the whole gist or essence of his vision is compiled in the book of alternative science Ayurveda.
Origin of Ayurveda: For being the oldest healthcare science in the world, Ayurveda dates back to the thousands of years. Even its mention is also there in the Hindu scriptures known as ‘Veda’. Over 6,000-year old the Rig Veda has a series of remedial techniques that has the immense capacity to overcome various sickness. It arranges our health’s tryst with the nature that ensures maintenance of health and we proudly say, “Our health is truly a wealth.”
