Method of Ayurveda :

Lord Dhanvantari is the God of Ayurveda. Ayurveda flourished during the time of Buddha. In this time Ayurvedic Practitioners usually used Mercuric - Sulphur combination based medicines.

After emerging victorious at the Kalinga War, Emperor Ashoka influence by Buddhist Teachings banned any bloodshedding. Therefore many of the Ayurvedic Practitioners who were using surgery for the practice of Ayurveda, left surgery and took to herbs for treating various ailments. Thus came a new form of Ayurveda which is being used even to this date. During the regime of Chandragupta Maurya, Ayurveda was part of the mainstream Indian Medical Practices.

Todays Ayurveda works on the Concept of Tridosha - Vata, Kapha and Pitta. Vata is the impulse energy necessary for the function of nervous system. Kaphat is the body fluid system related to ease out the release of lubrication and carrier of nutrients into the artireal system. And Pitta is the energy principle which uses bile to direct digestion and works for the better function of metabolism of the body.

Ayurveda works on achieving the equilibrium of the body; this as per the practice can be achieved by the proper balance between Vitta, Kapha and Pitta.

Some of the famous Ayurvedic Practices are Weight Loss, Stress Relief and Rejuvenation, Achenes and Pain Relief, Hair and Skin Treatment.
