          Yes ,this is the first question asked when a person think of starting ayurveda “does ayurveda really work?” answer is as follows….

          Ayurveda is such an old and holistic branch of medicine which defines its power in its name only..AYU-life and VEDA – science. Science which tells us about LIFE. Everyone wants healthy life to enjoy , for them this is right choice to deal with. Also, if you have some illness ayurveda is there to cure with touch of nature.

          Ayurveda proceeds from an understanding of unchanging laws of the universe rather than merely follow human invention. That’s why principal methods of Ayurveda remains constant for years. Universe as well as our body is made up of five elements as earth,water,air,fire,ether. Human being is replica of greater world. The three forces in the external world are the sun, moon, and wind that governs all the process of nature. Same as vaat , pitta, and kapha in our body.

          Ayurveda is not only a system of medicine in the conventional sense of methodology for treating diseases but it is a way of life that teaches us how to maintain health and improve both our energy and our awareness, how to live life to our full human and spiritual potential. Ayurveda treats the human being a whole combination of body, mind and immortal soul. It always consider the psychological and spiritual dimension along with the healing of physical dimensions promotes to understand effect of all our actions from waking up in morning, eating, sleeping, work, study, prayer, meditation.

          When we look around we see clearly that there are tremendous variations among human beings both physically and psychologically. Ayurveda considers both for health and happiness. That’s why patient having same complaints may differ in treatment according to his body constitution involved.

          Thus ayurveda is both art and science, showing us not only the principle of right living but also key to creating a style of living that make us happy. Ayurveda regimes of right living is designed for the achievement of long, healthy, active life relief from pain and disease.

          Thus if you want to give yourself natural cleansing to get rid of illness and disease “AYURVEDA DEFINITELY WORKS.”
          Birla Ayurveda has over 15 therapy centers in India, which are a combination of wellness Ayurveda, day care treatment centers, stay facilities, Ayurveda medicines and Ayurveda doctor consultation.

            Charaka Samhita- a complete healing

            What is extremely interesting and wonderful about the Charaka way of healing is that the body is looked at as a whole. The descartian mind-body divide really does not come into play. The enlightenment ideas are subverted in these texts and they provide such a beautiful and fruitful entry Point into healing narrative. Do look at the chapter on diverse healing learning in Psychological Science because a closer look at ayurveda can show that the mind and the body are evolving and flourishing at the same time and such a binary is, eve, futile.

              Ayurveda in Buddhist Period

              In the Buddhist period reached to great heights. Centres for Indian medical studies were established during this period and ayurvedic medicine was taught at the universities of Kashi, Taxila and Nalanda. This period is regarded as the golden era of Ayurvedic treatment. The term 'Ayurveda' was replaced by the term 'tigiccha-satta' in early Buddhist literature.

              Gautama Buddha was regarded as a great physician as well as a surgeon. During the early Buddhist period medical treatment and surgery developed to a greater extent. The great physician and renowned surgeon Jivaka belonged to this period. There are several anecdotes that mentions about his expertise. Jivaka had completed seven years of medical training under Bhiksu Atreya at Taxila University. After that he became a famous surgeon. Buddhism propagated outside India helped in the growth and development of ayurvedic medicine. The merits of ayurveda spread over to Tibet, Central Asia, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Java, Sumatra and to many other countries.

              Ayurveda in Early Buddhist Period
              In the early Buddhist period ayurveda flourished considerably. The Ayurvedic practitioners during this period commonly used mercuric-sulphur combination based medicines. They usually used sulphur, mercury and other metals along with herbs to prepare the different types of medicines. Nagarjuna was a famous Buddhist herbologist and an ayurvedic practitioner of this period. He was known for inventing different types of new drugs for the treatment of diseases. Many rulers following the teachings of the Gautama Buddha promoted healing activities. They constructed hospitals and established free dispensaries. Emperor Ashoka after the Kalinga War was highly influenced by the Buddhist teachings. He banned bloodshed in his kingdom. Hence many Ayurvedic practitioners who practiced surgery left their surgical intervention and adopted new medicinal treatments.

                Study of Traditional Indian Medicine

                Early text of Ayurveda is the ‘Sushruta Samhita’ which was compiled by Sushruta, the primary pupil of Dhanvantri, sometime around 1000 BC. Dhanvantri is known as the ‘Father of Surgery’, and in the Sushruta Samhita, the teachings and surgical techniques of Dhanvantri are compiled and complemented with additional findings and observations of Sushruta regarding topics ranging from obstetrics and orthopaedics to ophthalmology. Sushruta Samhita together with Charaka Samhita served as the textual material within the ancient Universities of Takshashila and Nalanda. The eight branches of Ayurveda are
                Internal medicine (Kayachikitsa Tantra)
                Surgery (Shalya Tantra)
                Ears, eyes, nose and throat (Shalakya Tantra)
                Pediatrics (Kaumarabhritya Tantra)
                Toxicology (Agada Tantra)
