The ancient methods of Yoga and Ayurveda keep the body, mind and soul in perfect harmony with each other and the person practicing this way of life remains content and healthy.
History of medicine depicts the struggle of mankind against disease. As the civilization makes progress with which disease patterns undergo change, the medical science also changes. Ayurveda is the system of medicine that evolved in India and it has survived for millennia. The fundamentals on which the Ayurvedic system is based are essentially true for all times and do not change from era to era. These are based on human factors and on intrinsic causes. The origin of Ayurveda is attributed to Atharva Veda where several diseases with their treatments have been mentioned. Later, from 6th Century BC to 7th Century AD, there were systematic developments of the science and this period is called Samhita Period. During this era, a number of classical works were produced by several authors and during this period there is evidence of organized medical care. The book Charak Samhita is a complete compendium of medical information, dealing with medical aspects, as etiology, symptomatology, treatment and medical care in health and in disease.
