Ayurveda means "Knowledge of Life" (ayur = Life, veda = Knowledge) and been based upon a magnificently conceived science of life, which avoids the psycho physical dualism of the western world and contibute entirely for the betterment of human existence.
More than 4500 years ago in India, according to myths Ayurveda was given to the humans by Brahma, the creator. In the myth, Brahma handed over the Ayurveda to Prajapati, the "Lord of Creatures", who in turn passed the Ayurveda further to the "Asvins", the divine physicians. The "Asvins" forwarded Ayurveda then to "Indra", the "God of the Gods". The passing on of Ayurveda to the people allowed them to live long, know few illnesses, and maintain close relationships with nature and with the divine.
While it started in the small villages, it soon spread to the urban areas where diseases were rampant. The people sent a messenger to "Indra", in order to ask his advice. The messenger met "Indra" who finally taught the people the science of life, the Ayurveda. The history of the Ayurveda begins with the "Veden", the four Sanskrit writings that count as the oldest testimonies of the Indian literature. In between 1500 and 1000 BC originated "Rig Veda", which already describes operations, prostheses and 67 medicinal plants. The "Atharva Veda" documented around 700 BC an amazing further development of the medical science: It lists 290 medicinal plants, clarifies various therapies for most different diseases and formulates the teachings of the people in health and disease.
The first documented physician was Charaka, who might have lived between 1000 and 700 BC. He wrote down his medical science in the "Charaka Samhita" that counts as one of the three pillars of the Ayurveda. This brilliant compendium of early medical art contains a systematic description of diseases as well as their diagnosis, which are based on the careful observation of the clinical illustrations, the assessment of the cause of disease, the development of disease, the physical variation as well as the personality of the patients, and the constitution and disposition of the diseases. Both hereditary dispositions and the first signs of a possible disease are included into the diagnosis. Charaka mentioned more than 500 medicinal plants and their possible dosage in certain syndromes.
The second important work of the Ayurveda-Literature is the "Sushruta Samhita". It originated around 200 years after the "Charaka Samhita" and also contains for the present-day physician a multitude of information about surgical encroachments. As a third pillar of the Ayurveda, the "Astangahrdaya" of the physician Vagbhata, who lived in the 7th century BC. He combined the medical science of Tibet and China with the insights of the Charaka and the Sushruta. It is certain today that Asia was the cradle of the medical science. Medicinal mindset was also transported on the east western trade routes. Notable are the resemblances of the Ayurveda with the old Chinese physiology and also physiological conceptions, which are almost identical with their western antique. The contiguity of the "Drei-Säfte-Lehre" to the antique model of the Hippocrates is mind-boggling. Also the famous physician of the island Kos spoke about slime, gall and blood as most important bases for health and illness. The neuralgic points, that play in the Chinese acupuncture an important role, are well known also in the Ayurveda; however, no needles are used for the treatment in the Ayurveda, but rather pressure massages - a art of acupressure.
Under emperor Ashoka in India, buddhism became the state religion. In the entire country, hospitals were constructed, physicians and nursing staff were trained and medicinal herb gardens were laid out. During this time (around 350 BC) the ayurvedic science belonged to the important requisite know-how of the Buddhist monks. With Buddhism, the Ayurveda spread itself in Asia to Tibet, central Asia, Sri Lanka, China, Japan, and Indonesia. Today, the science of Ayurveda has been spread and is practiced around the world.
The connection between Ayurveda and today’s natural healing techniques was established through the conquest of India by the Moslem at the end of the 8th century AD. So the Unani medicine, a mixed form of Arabic and Greek tradition, was influenced through the Ayurveda for a long time. During the "Holy War", its influence was felt on Sicily, south Italy, south France and Spain and then further to central Europe.
While in the western world, the alchemists, in search of the elixir of life and of the prescription of the artificial manufacturing of gold, discovered chemical processes and new substances. Nagaryuna and his students researched in India the medical effectiveness of minerals and metals and developed complicated manufacturing techniques for mineral and metallic medicines - a medical base research that became important in Europe just a century later.
Principle of Harmony
Rejuvenating cure for body and spirit
Ayurveda sees the people as a portrayal of the universe. Each living creature and each plant combine fire, earth, water, air and ether. Based on these there are three physiological principles or temperaments (Doshas), with which all physical functions can be described:
Pitta - Heat and Fire - is responsible for the metabolism.
Kapha - Earth and Water - is responsible for the cohesion, the resistance and the structure of the body.
Vata - Air and Ether - is responsible for each type of movement. It controls the sense organs and the spirit.
All three Doshas in the body are important for the maintenance of life. They are fixed since the birth of a person in characteristic proportion.
The science about the physique (constitution) type and the prevailing Dosha in the body is of great practical value. Diseases originate, when the harmony of the Doshas is disturbed in the body. This balance is ensured through a life practiced in accordance with nature, but the wrong attitude and incorrect nutrition will disturb the balance and lead to diseases. Ayurveda teaches how diseases are healed and improved through adequate nutrition and a sensible way of life.
An ayurvedic therapy comprises baths, ingenious massages and herb treatments. The remedies prepared are adapted from the old tradition out of a fundus of more than 500 herbs, roots and other plant parts. Nutrition plays a big role and is based on well-spiced vegetarian foods, while also permitted is "white meat" like poultry and fish. The best time for an Ayurveda course of treatment is the time of the monsoon (June until September), when nature regenerates and the climate supports the cleaning of the body from inside and outside in a more ideal manner.
