History of Ayurveda

Ayurveda is considered in India as being oldest medicine and would be divine origin.

Diseases and calamities were the batch of the men on ground and did not cease to increase. Spiritual chiefs met then and decided to send Daksha Prajapathi to Brahmâ God, (the creator in the Hindu trilogy), to study Ayurveda and to give to the human beings, the solutions to stop the plagues. Brahmâ, which gives impulsion by its divine capacities, made known this to Daksha Prajapathi.

This last transmitted "this life science" to the Ashwini brothers, famous physicists evolving in semi-divine plans, between the ground and the skies. The curative miracles of the two brothers are described in Rig-Véda. The Ashwini brothers transmitted in their turn this knowledge with Indra, the king of the Gods, who himself transmitted Ayurveda to his disciples Aterya and Bharadwaja, Kashyapa and Dhanwantari.

All wrote treaties on ayurvedic. Aterya and Bharadwaja created a school specialized in the general medicine. Kashyapa specialized in pediatry and Dhanwantari in the surgery.
