The mythological origin of Ayurveda has a link with Brahma, the God of Creation. Hindu myth holds that Brahma wanted to ease the suffering of human by offering knowledge of Ayurveda to other Gods. One of those deities was Dhanvantari, who then transmitted the knowledge to mortal sages. He is considered as the progenitor of ayurveda.Hence; Ayurveda is viewed as a divine science of revelation and thus values personal insight as much as empirical observation. Ayurveda is one of the most ancient systems of medicine in the world. Its antiquity goes into Vedas –the oldest recorded wisdom on the world. The history of Ayurveda which can be traced back to the Vedic Ages clearly lays out instructions to maintain health as well as fighting illnesses through therapies such as massages, herbal medicines, diet control and exercise.
Ayurveda takes largely a functional approach in the diagnosis and management of diseases. Diagnosis is made by looking at the subjective experiences of the patient and comparing and relating them with the normal body functions. It's a unique, indispensable branch of medicine - a complete naturalistic system that depends on the diagnosis of your body's humours - vata, pitta and kapha - to achieve the right balance. For a harmonious living, balancing the state of tridosha through promoting integrity is the key. Thus to maintain the health one has to follow promotional plans laid down in ayurveda taking into consideration of individual biological rhythmic pattern as 'prakriti".Ayurveda doesn't believe merely in adding the number of years to life but it advocate to add life to the each year. This may be one of the reasons that the first aim of ayurveda is to preserve and promote the health of healthy person. A normal life span with a natural death is considered to be the result of incorporating ayurveda in daily life.
Regimens and dietics
Ayurveda focuses more on preventive areas such as appropriate daily and seasonal practices, lifestyle correction and food that are diseases and patient specific. It has dealt very deeply the aspect of dietics in view of the Indian social and climatic conditions. There are rules regarding incompatibility of materials or specific processing methods, or season, measurements etc which are also subtly observed while preparing a drug so as to form a tailor made treatment.

When used judicially and clocking with the basic principles they produce miraculous effects. Ayurvedic medicines are usually prepared as a combination of several herbs and other natural ingredients of high medicinal value. The recipe and methods of preparations are as prescribed by Rishis or sages who have passed on their over generation.

The objective of medicine is to address people's unavoidable needs for emotional and physical healing. Increased use of yogic techniques has made it imperative that these should be included in ayurvedic practice. There has been progress in this direction in recent years, with a steady increase in the number of doctors who include yoga therapies in their practice. This integrative approach of incorporating yoga with ayurvedic practice is definitely a future sunshine sector.

In fact, today, Kerala is the only State in India which practices this system of medicine with absolute dedication.
