Ayurveda - An Introduction
Ayurveda is probably the biggest gift that India has endowed upon the world. It is the oldest branch of medicine that originated in ancient India. Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word that comes from two words 'Ayur', which means life and 'Veda' meaning science. Developed during the Vedic Period, its origin is believed to more than 5000 years old. It is said the Lord Brahma himself taught it to Dhanvantari who further distributed it to the betterment of humans. The earliest works that give a detailed insight into the world of Ayurveda are Sushruta Samhita and Charaka Samhita.

The main principle of Ayurveda is that it does not consider only the effected part during treatment, but body as a whole. This principle has literally become the greatest advantage of Ayurveda as this system almost nullifies all side effects that can sometimes arise. Experienced Ayurveda practitioners argue that Ayurveda is not a way of cure, but a way of life. Today, Ayurveda is not contained to India, but has spread to all parts of the world.

The Eight Branches of AyurvedaThe Body
Ayurveda is very wide branch of medicine. And for the ease of study, Ayurveda has been split into eight different sections called 'Ashtanga Hridaya'. They are Kaya Chikilsa (Internal Medicine), Kaumara Britya (pediatrics), Graha Chikilsa (Psychiatry), Shalakya Tantra (Ent, Opthamology), Shalya Tantra (Surgery), Agada Tantra (Toxicology), Rasayana Chikilsa (Rejuvenation), Vajeekarana Chikilsa (Science of Aphrodisiac). Each of these branches deals with innumerable number of diseases and their cure related to their specifications. Some of them diseases are not yet recognized by modern medicines.

The Methods of Treatment
Ayurveda considers the body to be made of five elements namely Earth, Water, Fire, air, and space; the same elements that constitute the universe. And it recognizes three biological humors that maintain the proper functioning of the body. They are Ether and air that manage the movements (Vata Dosha), Fire and water together control the process of metabolism and growth (Pita Dosha) , and water and earth combine to govern the Kapha Dosha. All methods of treatment are based on these principles.

The Magic Ayurveda In Kerala
Kerala has secured the top spot when it comes to treatment of Ayurveda. So much so, that Kerala today is referred to as the Land of Ayurveda. The main factor which contributed to this is the magnificent climate that is absolutely perfect for all ayurvedic treatments. The salubrious environment in most cases proves to be a catalyst for the treatment. The best months are between June and November which are the monsoon months in Kerala. The number of professional ayurvedic hospitals present in Kerala are hard to be believed. The rich cover of forest that has some rare herbs and plants used in ayurveda makes Kerala even more advantageous for ayurvedic treatment.
