Ancient Vedas and Scriptures depict the fact that Lord Brahma was the pioneer of Ayurveda.

Lord Brahma transferred the Knowledge of Ayurveda to Daksha Prajapati who in turn transferred them to Ashwani Kumar. Again it got transferred to Indra and Bhardwaj received it from him who in turn transferred it to Atreya Punarvasu. Ayurveda was next passed on to Agnivesh who finally passed them on to Jatukarna, Bhel, Parashar,Hareeta and Ksharpani.
Ayurveda sprouted in Pristine Indian subcontinent some 5000 years back. The most primitive remarkable texts on Ayurveda include Charak Samhita, Sushruta Samhita and Ashtanga Hrudaya. Ayurveda is based on ancient Sankhya cosmology which highlights the relevant fact that this universe is made from five elements, Panchmahabhutas namely, Earth, water, fire, air and space. These ingredients are also basic constituents of human body. In order to live a healthy and happy life, it is vital to strike a balance among these basic elements. According to Ayurveda, human body is built, it reacts and responds to particular situation or component of universe based on three prakritis i.e Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Ayurveda shows us the roadmap of striking balance among these three.
Today, entire world has accepted Ayurveda as an indespensible branch of medicine and health system because it is natural and safe. Where allopathic medicines target to the management of diseases, Ayurveda focuses on the elimination of root cause of the disease and it stretches emphasis on prevention, rather than cure.
