Ayurveda (Ayur = life, veda = knowledge) is one of the ancient medical systems widely used in the Indian subcontinent. The practice of Ayurveda depends upon the literatures such as Caraka-saṃhitā, Suśruta-saṃhitā & Ashtānga-hridayam written thousands of years ago. Over the period of time, these classics have undergone major revisions and edits by sages and reputed scholars.
Ayurveda therapeutics usually includes range of lifestyle and behavioural modifications such as yoga āsanas and meditation, dietary changes, oral administration of single or polyherbal formulations, parasurgical procedures like raktamokshana aka leech therapy, agnikarma, surgical procedures such as ksharsutra ligation and panchakarma etc.
Graduates of Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery (BAMS) are able to practice as Ayurveda doctors in India, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bangladesh. Some parts of Europe, Australia, New Zealand and United States also allow Ayurveda practices in the form of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM).
Ayurveda is widely appreciated for its holistic approach towards the individual and unique concept of disease. Scientific evidences are slowly and steadily supporting its clinical efficacy, and there is growing advocacy that integrative care should be prioritised to deliver the best outcome for the patients.
