Ayurveda or Ayurvedic medicine is a system of age old Indian tradition, is native to the Indian subcontinent, and is a form of alternative medicine. The oldest known Ayurvedic texts are the Suśrutha Saṃhitā and the Charka Saṃhitā. These Classical Sanskrit texts are among the foundational and formally compiled works of Ayurveda.
Around 600 BC this new system of medicine evolved in India. This is a system that stressed on its prevention, in addition to treating an ailment, and it came to be called Ayurveda. This tradition of health and care (wellness) was followed by the Dravidians and Aryans alike and has been practiced ever since. There are historical references of some sort of a crude system of healing prevalent in Kerala dating back to the 5th Century.
By the medieval period, Ayurvedic practitioners developed a number of medicinal preparations and surgical procedures for the treatment of various ailments. Practices that are derived from Ayurvedic medicine are regarded as part of complementary and alternative medicine, and along with Siddha Medicine and Traditional Chinese medicine, form the basis for systems medicine.
Ayurveda is at present well integrated into the Indian National health care system, with state hospitals for Ayurveda established across the country.
Popularity of Ayurveda and wellness tours is turning out to be an important contributor to the tourism boom in India. Kerala is the only state in India which practices this system of medicine with absolute dedication.
