WELCOME TO KRISHNA AYURVED MEDICAL COLLEGE & MATRUSRI DAVALBA AYURVED HOSPITAL
Origin of Ayurveda is attributed to Lord Dhanvantari, the physician to the Gods as per Hindu mythology. It is believed from the astronomical records in ancient Vedic texts that Ayurveda, was in practice even before 4000 BC. Hence, it is evident that Ayurveda was very mature and predominant in India thousands of years ago.
The main classical Ayurveda texts begin with accounts of the transmission of medical knowledge from the Gods to sages, and then to human physicians. The most important Ayurvedic texts are the Charaka Samhita, Susruta Samhita and Ashtanga Hridayam. These texts analyse the human body in terms of earth, water, fire, air, and ether as well as the three energy channels (Tridosha: Kapha, Pitta, Vata roughly translated as – water, fire, and air). Balance of the doshas results in health, while imbalance results in disease.
