Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-aged system of native medicine that has its roots in the Vedic civilization of India. Tibetan medicaments and Traditional Chinese Remedies both have originated from Ayurveda.
Although repressed during ages of western possession, Ayurveda has been enjoying a greater resurrection in both its native soil and throughout the globe.
During the era of provincial British governance of India, the Art of Ayurveda was overlooked by the East India Company, in favour of present-day chemicals.
But since Indian Independence, there has been more concentrated emphasis on Ayurveda and other traditionary medicinal systems. Ayurveda is today well incorporated into the Indian National health management system, with state of the art hospitals established across the land.
In countries outside of India, the usage of Ayurveda is accredited in complementary heath care. In the last 30 years, Ayurveda has been increasing in popularity around the world, partially due to the work of great Ayurvedic preachers like Maharshi Mahesh Yogi and Dr.Deepak Chopra and great healers like VaidyaTrigunaji and Dr.Jayaprakash.
In India, researches in Ayurveda is conducted by statutory intitutes like the Central Council for Research in Ayurveda and Siddha (CCRAS), funded by the Government of India, and through non-profit non-government entities like Centre for Development of Indian Medicine.
