Ayurveda: Ancient Herbal Drug To Nano - Medicine In Modern Laboratory

Dr. Amit Kumar

Introduction: Ayurveda, the science of life, prevention and longevity is the oldest and most holistic medical system available. It is known to have evolved over 5,000 years ago in the far reaches of the Himalaya in India from the deep wisdom of spiritually enlightened prophets, the Rishis. Their wisdom was transmitted orally from teacher to disciple, and eventually set down in Sanskrit poetry known as the Vedas. The earliest knowledge about drug plants and drug preparations come from Rigveda, which claims many plants of medicinal importance. There are also found substances of vegetable, animal and mineral origin used as drugs. The osadhi-sukta of the Rigveda (10.47.1-23) is an important document on ancient Botany and vegetable drugs. It is further developed by the traditional healers as seen in the Atharvaveda1.
