Ayurveda Sanskrit:Āyurveda, "the complete knowledge for long life") or ayurvedic medicine is a system of traditional medicine native to India and practiced in other parts of the world as a form of alternative medicine. In Sanskrit, the word ayurveda consists of the words āyus, meaning "longevity", and veda, meaning "related to knowledge" or "science". Evolving throughout its history, ayurveda remains an influential system of medicine in South Asia. The earliest literature on Indian medical practice appeared during the Vedic period in India. The Suśruta Saṃhitā and the Charaka Saṃhitā were influential works on traditional medicine during this era. Over the following centuries, ayurvedic practitioners developed a number of medicinal preparations and surgical procedures for the treatment of various ailments .
Western medicine has ayurveda classified as a system of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) that is used to complement, rather than replace, the treatment regimen and relationship that exists between a patient and their existing physician.

The basic ingredients used in the formulation of Ayurvedic medicines are herbs and natural products.
The physical and chemical properties of each plant and mineral are determined by its elemental composition.
Ayurveda views the universe and everything in it as being composed of five basic elements – earth, water,
fire, air and space.
The attributes of each material vary according to the proportion and correlation of these five elements
in its composition. Research has revealed the therapeutic value of each herb and mineral and how these
are to be compounded and administered for maximum efficacyYou are what you eat’. This underlying principle
of Ayurveda is reflected in the emphasis not merely on “medicine” intake, but also on the type and quality
of food ingested and on the eating habits of a patient.
