Ayurveda : origins and evolution

Author: Kochhar, Rajesh

Keywords: Medical sciences
Medicine, Ayurvedic

Issue Date: 2011-01

Publisher: National Council of Science Museums, Kolkata

Description: Quest for good health and long life is probably as old as human existence itself. Human beings have always believed that they are entitled to die of old age rather than disease. Towards this goal they have striven at spiritual as well as material level. Evil spirits were sought to be driven off through charms, incantation and magic, with appeal made to the creator to be the saviour and Healer also. At the same time, recourse was taken to medication also. The premise that disease has a cause and efforts need to be made to remove it eventually led to the establishment of a health care system.

Description: Includes bibliographical references.
