Ayurveda or ayurvedic medicine is a Hindu system of traditional medicine native to India and a form of alternative medicine. The earliest literature on Indian medical practice appeared during the Vedic period in India, in Rigved, the oldest known text in written form, where Chyavana rishi, son of Bhrigu rishi is mentioned for whome the herbal preparation Chyawanprash was first prepared, 10,000 years ago in Ashram of Chyavana rishi on Dhosi Hill in the Vedic state of Brahmavarta in India. The Suśruta Saṃhitā and the Charaka Saṃhitā, encyclopedias of medicine compiled from various sources from the mid-first millennium BCE to about 500 CE, are among the foundational and formally compiled works of Ayurveda. Over the following centuries, ayurvedic practitioners developed a number of medicinal preparations and surgical procedures for the treatment of various ailments. Current practices derived (or reportedly derived) from Ayurvedic medicine are regarded as part of complementary and alternative medicine.
Safety concerns have been raised about Ayurveda, with two U.S. studies finding about 20 percent of Ayurvedic Indian-manufactured patent medicines contained toxic levels of heavy metals such as lead, mercury and arsenic. Other concerns include the use of herbs containing toxic compounds and the lack of quality control in Ayurvedic facilities.
The practice of panchakarma is a therapeutic way of eliminating toxic elements from the body.
As early as the Mahābhārata, ayurveda was called “the science of eight components”, a classification that became canonical for ayurveda. They are:
- Internal medicine
- Opthalmology and ENT
- Psychiatry has been called Bhūta vidyā .
- Prevention of diseases and improving immunity and rejuvenation
- Aphrodisiacs and improving health of progeny
