Ayurveda (Sanskrit: आयुर्वेद; Âyurveda, the “science of life”) Ayurvedic medicine is a system of traditional medicine native to the Indian subcontinent and practiced in other parts of the world as a form of alternative medicine.
In Sanskrit, the word ayurveda consists of the words âyus, meaning “longevity”, and veda, meaning “related to knowledge” or “science”. Evolving throughout its history, ayurveda remains an influential system of medicine in South Asia.
The earliest literature on Indian medical practice appeared during the Vedic period in India. The Suúruta Saṃhitâ and the Charaka Saṃhitâ were influential works on traditional medicine during this era. Over the following centuries, ayurvedic practitioners have also identified a number of herbal preparations for treating various ailments and diseases.
Ayurveda is considered to be a form of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in the western world, where several of its methods, such as the use of Ayurvedic medicinal herbs, massage, and yoga, are applied on their own as a form of CAM treatment.
