Special and History of Ayurveda
Ayurveda is the oldest written medical system of human civilization. A voice has been recognized all over the world and there is no doubt that Ayurveda is more than the medical systems available in modern times is effective.
According to modern scholars, at least three thousand years Pre-Ayurveda was born and the books of this system of medicine 800 years before Christ were also written. The knowledge of Ayurveda is universally accepted by the people of the earth.
Received from the gods of the people. Ayurveda is an independent Indian system of medicine, which I have felt proud by adopting myself in the whole world.
For the protection of mankind and the destruction of diseases, Brahma, the father of creation, prescribed Ayurveda
The composition of a book “Brahmasamhita” (in which there were lakhs of people) taking the essence of everything Of.
Thereafter, Brahmadev taught Ayurveda to Daksha Prajapati, that is, the science of long life. After this, Daksha explained this Veda of long life to the doctors of the gods (both Ashwini Kumars) and these Ashwini Kumars explained the secret of Ayurveda to Devraj Indra.
In this series, Maharishi Bharadwaj taught Ayurveda from Devraj Indra. After that sage Bharadwaj returned from Indraloka to other saints of the earth. The education of Ayurveda was duly imparted.
Punarvasu and Aatreya duly organized their classes in these Mahatmas. He taught Ayurveda to the disciples. Atreya’s classes and teachings (lector) Inscribed 800 years ago, this scriptural text ‘Atreya Samhita’ (which is known as Ayurveda t is known as the original text of). This book was written by Charak Rishi 180 years before Christ.
After this, another pillar of Ayurveda, the Sushruta Samhita, was composed 600 years before Christ valid as.
In this book, various complex diseases are treated by dissection (surgery). Medicine is described. After this, Vagbhata (who was the chief Vaidya i.e. doctor of Maharaja Yudhishthira of Mahabharata period) with the help of Charaka and Sushruta, composed the Ayurvedic medical treatise under the name “Agang Heart”.
After that “Bangsen” wrote an Ayurvedic medical text in the name of his own name (Bangsen) and after Bangsen, Madhvacharya wrote a book called “Madhav Nidan” and after the composition of this book, Bhavmishra, a resident of Madhadras province, wrote an Ayurvedic text named “Bhav Prakash”.
After this, a well-known medical teacher named Sharadhar composed a book of Ayurveda in the name of ‘Shardadhara Samhita’, in which he himself tried on patients i.e. tested.
Yogas (recipes) are also included. After this, successful compositions of Ayurveda texts were made like Chakradatta, Vaidya Vinod, Vaidya Manotsavaka Bhaishajya Ratnavali, Vaidya Jeevan, etc.
The usefulness of the texts remains intact till date. According to Ayurveda mystics
(To know the diagnosis and cause of diseases, ‘Ashtanga Hridaya’ which is more famous as ‘Vagbhata’ for ‘Madhava Nidan’ formulas and ‘Sushruta Samhita’ for physical knowledge and ‘Charak Samhita’ for medical work are the best texts. The human body is originated from 5 substances (earth, water, fire, air, and space), it is a common belief. After food, bodily activities start breaking it.
The taste of food depends on the nature of its taste. Sweet food produces blood, flesh, fat, bones, and strength. Sweet foods are solid, cold, and heavy.
Citrus substances increase digestion power, accelerate bodily functions and remove ‘Gas’. Salty substances also remove ‘Air’ but produce ‘Mucus’.
Some substances are of some other taste while eating and their quality changes after eating ie at the time of digestion.
On this basis, special attention is paid to medicines and their quantities during Ayurvedic medicine. According to Ayurveda, the root of all diseases is abdominal disturbances (disorders).
Due to the actions in the mouth at the time of eating food, phlegm is produced, then all other types of bodily fluids get mixed in it, this produces bile and finally, all the beneficial substances are absorbed from the food. Thereafter ‘Air’ is generated.
Diet juice is produced from food during digestion. From food juice, rasa metal produces blood, from blood flesh, fat, bones, bone marrow, semen, and ooze are produced.
In this way, the part of the food that is used by the body is called prasad and the waste material (which is not needed by the body) is called excreta (excreta, nails, sweat, etc.).
According to Ayurveda, the cause of the origin of diseases is the imbalance of cuff, bile, and air. This is called the ‘tridosha principle’. On the basis of this principle, diseases caused by the cuff, bile, or air are identified.
