Since time immemorial, Ayurveda in India has tried to make the mankind understand the psychosomatic integration. There are several famous books written on ayurveda in India. For Instance, The Sutrasthana of Charaka Samhita has referred life a great combination of body, senses, mind and reincarnating soul. Ayurveda is considered as one of the purest life science. This science is quite effective and beneficial. Moreover, it has no side effects.
Another interesting feature of Ayurveda is that it has used all healing methods, such as yoga, surgery, gems, amulets, meditation, herbs, diet, jyotishi, color and life style. Ayurveda has a close link with all the earliest known Vedas. In order to soothe 'panchamahabhuts', Yajur Veda has recommended a few rituals for healing Cosmic as well as individual. In order to heal sensitive body parts or Marmas, Ayurveda and Dhanur Veda or martial arts refer each other.
Year 1500 BC marked the categorization of Ayurveda into two schools. They are Atreya and Dhanvantari. Atreya is known as the School of Physicians. On the other hand, Dhanvantri is referred as School of Surgeons.
Later, a few more texts of Ayurveda were written, such as Dhanvantri, Bhavaprakasha, Raja and Shaligram. All these books encompass new drugs and applications. Year 800 AD marked translation of Ayurveda into Arabic.
Ayurveda heals a person in totality, as it heals body along with mind and soul. It very well understands relationship between the natural law and human body functioning. Thus, it effectively strikes a balance between both of them. This is one of the major causes for the longest and uninterruptible innings of Ayurveda.
