Ayurveda, the perfect science or knowledge of life is believed to be the oldest method of treatment for human diseases, evolved around 600 BC in India. The word ‘Ayurveda’ combines two words ‘Ayus’ and Veda; ‘Ayus’ means life whereas Veda means (sacred) knowledge. Ayurveda is attributed to lord Dhanvantari, who as physician treated Gods as per Hindu mythology, even before 4000 BC. It provides an alternative or complementary medicine to allopathy practices. In the western word, Ayurveda therapies and practices (which are manifold) have been integrated in general wellness applications. It is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body and soul. When the balance is disrupted, the decease occurs. Ayurveda practice emphasizes that prevention is better than cure. Ayurveda practiced by special physicians are called ‘Vaidyas’.
The institute regularly organizes Ayurvedic camps for the health awareness, especially in the rural areas around the city. The students are provided with the regular hospital visits with an aim to enhance their practical skills. The institute runs with the motivation and vision of our Hon’ble Founder President and Chairman, Shree Jagdishbhai Patel.
