Ayurveda in vogue in India Since very early times. The ayurveda and siddha systems have played a vital role in the sphere of the public health. Their popularity is due to their availability, cheapness and efficacy, but their through knowledge was confined to a few specialist only. There was a paucity of standardization of drugs and therefore the Ayurvedic systems did not keep pace with the Allopathic systems.
An ayurvedic physician is very accurate in presenting the cause, symptoms and treatment of the disease. He accurately diagnoses the diseases by feeling the pulse or looking at the eyes and thee face. He brings about the balance of the three hum ours in the body i.e – Vata(Wind), Pitta (bile). and Kapha (Phlegm) by administering the suitable rasas in correct proportions.
