AYURVEDA

Pankajakasthuri Herbals India Pvt Ltd

Ayurveda is a Sanskrit term, made up of the words "ayus" and "veda." "Ayus"
means life and "Veda" means knowledge or science. The term "ayurveda" thus means 'the
knowledge of life' or 'the science of life'. The aim of this system is to prevent illness, heal
the sick and preserve life. According to the ancient Ayurvedic scholar Charaka, "ayu"
comprises the mind, body, senses and the soul. Widely regarded as the oldest form of
healthcare in the world, Ayurveda is an intricate medical system that originated in India
thousands of years ago. The fundamentals of Ayurveda can be found in Hindu scriptures
called the Vedas the ancient Indian books of wisdom. The Rig Veda, which was written
over 6,000 years ago, contains a series of prescriptions that can help humans overcome
various ailments.
Ayurveda is based on the premise that the universe is made up of five elements:
air, fire, water, earth and ether. These elements are represented in humans by three
"doshas", or energies: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. When any of the doshas accumulate in the
body beyond the desirable limit, the body loses its balance. Every individual has a
distinct balance, and our health and well-being depend on getting a right balance of the
three doshas ("tridoshas"). Ayurveda suggests specific lifestyle and nutritional guidelines
to help individuals reduce the excess dosha.
Ayurveda has been in use since our Vedic period. The name Ayurveda was
evolved from one the Veda called Adarvavedham. Being made from natural ingredients,
ayurveda is a very effective medicine for even incurable diseases. Strict adherence of
specific dosages, following the correct food regimen and the deep understanding of diseases etc
make it possible to find solutions s for many incurable diseases. It is possible to cure
chronic diseases irrespective of the climate conditions if the above conditions are strictly
followed. The term Ayur means duration of span of life. Veda means unimpeachable

knowledge. The common translation of ayurveda is science of life. The earliest recorded
knowledge about ayurveda is founded in Rig-Veda and the Adharva Veda, both a second
millennium BC. The Adharva Veda lists eight divisions of ayurveda: internel medicine,
surgery of head and neck, ophthalmology, surgery, toxicology, psychiatry, gerontology
or science of recognition and the science of fertility. Ayurveda assures treatment of any
diseases without any side effect in the future. It is a holistic medical system maintains
good health through the harmonies coordination among the mind, body, spirit and
environment. Today Ayurveda being the world wide because of the side effect of the
modern drugs. We Indian should be proud enough to be privileged to have our country as
the motherland of Ayurveda.
AYURVEDIC MEDICINE INDUSTRY IN INDIA
Ayurvedic medicines are produced by several thousand companies in India, but most
of them are quite small, including numerous neighborhood pharmacies that compound
ingredients to make their own remedies. It is estimated that the total value of products
from the entire Ayurvedic production in India is on the order of one billion dollars (U.S.).
The industry has been dominated by less than a dozen major companies for decades,
joined recently by a few others that have followed their lead, so that there are today 30
companies doing a million dollars or more per year in business to meet the growing
demand for Ayurvedic medicine. The products of these companies are included within the
broad category of "fast moving consumer goods" (FMCG; which mainly involves foods,
beverages, toiletries, cigarettes, etc.). Most of the larger Ayurvedic medicine suppliers
provide materials other than Ayurvedic internal medicines, particularly in the areas of
foods and toiletries (soap, toothpaste, shampoo, etc.), where there may be some overlap
with Ayurveda, such as having traditional herbal ingredients in the composition of
toiletries.
