The first documented texts on Ayurveda date back to the 4th Century BCE, but scholars have argued that Ayurveda had its beginnings around 5000 BCE. Originally passed on to practitioners orally by a Guru, it became widely known and popular after the works of Charaka and Sushruta. The Charaka Samhita and The Sushruta Samhita are considered two of the most important works in Ayurveda and are still being followed in the 21st Century. They describe the basic principles of Ayurveda, as well as treatment options. A detailed description of medicinal plants and their formulations are given in the texts along with details on diseases associated with every part of the body. These texts are still taught today in Ayurveda Institutes and Colleges.
Unlike other forms of medicine, Ayurveda does not only deal with the cure of disease, rather the holistic wellbeing of the body. It considers the physical, mental, and social health of a person and society as a whole. With advances in science and human understanding, research is being done to understand the principles behind Ayurveda and medicines. Many of the ingredients such as Tulsi, Neem, Ashwagandha, and Brahmi have been shown to be more effective than their synthetic counterparts and are being used widely all over the world. This has led to a renewed interest amongst the population in Ayurveda, one which will surely ensure its preservation for millennia to come.
