PREAMBLE:

Ayurvedic Medicine is a medical specialty that focuses primarily on Preventive and Curative Medicine. Ayurveda covers the whole entity of Health for the wellbeing of an individual at physical, mental, social, spiritual and economical levels through its eight branches – Ashtanga Ayurveda – Kaya Chikitsa (Internal Medicine), Shalakya Tantra (ENT & Ophthalmology) Shalya Tantra – Surgery, AgadatantraevumVidhiVaidyak (Toxicology & Jurisprudence), BhootaVidya (Psychology), KaumaraBhritya (Paediatrics), Rasayan (Science of Rejuvenation) and Vajeekaran (Science of Aphrodisiac).

The various topics covered under this science are SamhithaSiddhanta (Basic Principles & Sanskrit), RachanaSharir(Anatomy), KriyaSharir (Physiology),RogaNidanaEvumVikrutiVigyan ( Etio Pathology), DravyaGuna (Pharmacology &Pharmacognosy), Rasa Shastra &BhaisajyaKalpana (Pharmaceutics),Panchakarma (Therapeutics), SvastaVrtta ( Achievement of Good Health and Climatology with stages of Disease), Physicians, Therapeutics including wholesome locality and Procedures. Descriptions of these topics are spread over the entire treatise.

Ayurveda deals on four ‘Purusharthas’ – ‘Dharma’(Code of Conduct), ‘Artha’ ( Wealth), ‘Kaama’ (Desires), ‘Moksha’ (Salvation) for which every individual is striving for. All this can be attained if and only a person is healthy. Therefore, Ayurveda emphasizes more on being healthy. If at all a person gets diseased, Ayurveda works by uprooting the disease from its cause rather than treating it symptomatically. Thus it is theSCIENCE of LIFE.
