    Ayurvedic Medicinal System introduction

    The Indian medical system includes Ayurveda (also known as Vedas of Life) medicine and Siddha medicine. It is considered the oldest medical system in the world. It has been used in countless traditional Indian families for more than 5,000 years.

    According to Indian mythology, the origin of Ayurveda is legendary. It was created by Brahma, the creator of one of the three major Hindu gods, to protect humans before they were created.

    Brahma first taught Ayurveda to the twin twins (Aswins) of the twin gods of medicine, and they taught them to Indra, the god of thunderstorms. Indra taught to the wise men who practiced in the world, and they passed on to their offspring and disciples.

    For the first time in history, Ayurvedic records appear in Rig Veda, an ancient collection of Indian poetry dating back to 6000 BC.

    From 3000 BC to 2000 BC, Atharva, one of the four Vedic classics, came out, of which Ayurveda was used as the Supplement-Veda Vedic, attached to Ama Po Veda. 

    Although Ayurvedic medicine has long been used in practice, it was not until then that it was compiled into a book by word of mouth and became an independent science.

    Branches of Ayurvedic Medicine

    1. Kayachikitsa (internal medicine)

    2. Shalakya Tantra (Head and Neck Surgery and Therapy, Ophthalmology and Otorhinolaryngology)

    3. Shalya Tantra (Surgery)

    4. Agada Tantra (Toxicology)

    5. Bhuta Vidya (psychiatry)

    6. Kaumarabhritya (Pediatrics)

    7. Rasayana (gerontology that delays body aging)

    8. Vajikarana (fertility)

    The earliest exposition of the above eight branches appeared in Atreya Samhita, which is still applied in real life to this day.

    Around 1500 BC, Ayurveda medicine was divided into two schools:
    Atiyah-the internalist school and Dhanvantari-the externalist school, making it a more systematic science. These two colleges have authored two major books on Ayurveda medicine-Caraka Samhita and Susruta Samhita. 
    Other medical classics were written in the first half of the 1st century BC.

    The Book of Zoroga was written by the great Indian medical ancestor Zorogar, and was supplemented and modified by Atiyah.
    It is still the most widely used medical book in Ayurveda. Miaowen inherited the theories of the Vatican school, the ancestor of Indian medicine.
    His "Miaowen Collection" compiled various knowledge of repair surgery, including limb replacement surgery, plastic surgery, laparotomy and even brain surgery.
    At the same time, he is also famous for inventing rhinoplasty. Around 500 AD, the third important Ayurvedic medical work, Astanga Hridaya, was published. It synthesizes the views of the two universities of Ayurveda.

    From 500 AD to 1900 AD, 16 important medical monographs, Nightus, were introduced as supplements to Ayurveda's medical classics. 
    They collected and recorded various new drugs, expanded their usage, and discarded old drugs. And material identification methods.
    Ayurvedic Medicines

    There is evidence that Ayurveda medicine has enriched almost all medical systems in the world. Through maritime trade with India, the Egyptians learned about Ayurveda medicine. 
    The invasion of Alexander the Great brought Greeks and Romans into contact with Ayurveda.

    Traditional UNANI medicine is formed in this communication. In the early years of the first millennium, with the spread of Buddhism to the east, Ayurveda medicine also spread to the east, and it had a huge impact on Tibetan medicine and traditional Chinese herbal medicine.

    Ayurvedic Medicine Concepts and principles

    Ayurveda medicine is not only a medical system, but also represents a healthy lifestyle. Ayurveda consists of two words:
    Ayur refers to life, Veda is the meaning of knowledge and science, so the word Ayurveda means the science of life.

    According to Ayurveda, human beings should coexist in harmony with nature, and disease is caused by this harmony being broken. 
    Restoring this basic balance by using nature and its products is the main purpose of Ayurvedic medicine. 
    This concept not only runs through the process of treating pain, but also runs through the process of disease prevention.

    The diagnosis and treatment of Ayurvedic medicine is more inclined to human characteristics than disease characteristics. 
    Before making a diagnosis, the patient's age, living environment, social and cultural background, and physical fitness are all aspects to be considered.

    The main means of diagnosis include touching, examining and talking, and using herbs to make up for losses. Their basic function is to stimulate the function of specialized organs. Therefore, the goal of Ayurvedic medicine is to solve health problems by regulating diet without causing side effects.

    In Ayurveda's medical point of view, life is made up of the body, the senses, the spirit, and the soul. 
    Humans have three body fluids (qi, bile, mucus), seven basic tissues (blood, protoplasts, muscle, fat, bone, bone marrow, and semen) and waste products from the body. 
    The development of the human body is related to aging and the circulation of various elements of the human body and the food we eat.

    According to Ayurvedic medicine, everything in the universe, including the human body, is composed of five basic elements: earth, water, fire, air and space (atmosphere).
    The growth and development of the human body depends on the nutrients it receives, such as food. 
    Food is also composed of the above five basic elements, which supplement the corresponding elements in the body through the action of Agni.
    The human body is an organic organism, and its organization is formed by combining and transforming these five basic elements.

    Being healthy or sick depends on whether the entire body system is in balance, including whether the parts of the body are in balance with each other.
    Both internal and external factors can disrupt the balance of nature and lead to disease.
    Imbalances can be caused by partial eclipse, bad habits, and disregard for healthy lifestyle rules.
    At the same time, abnormal seasons, incorrect movements, improper use of sensory organs, and adverse effects on the body and mind can disrupt existing normal balance.
    Treatment usually involves restoring the physical and mental system by adjusting diet, correcting bad habits and behaviors, medications, and taking preventive therapies.

    The Basic Ayush Treatment

    The basic treatment can be summed up as "solitude is the right way to stay healthy, and solitude is the best doctor to keep people away from disease." This also summarizes the basic purpose of Ayurvedic medicine, that is, maintaining and promoting health and preventing And cure diseases.

    The treatment of diseases is mainly through the detox therapy, drugs, reasonable diet, exercise and health regimen, which aim to restore and strengthen the function of the body mechanism, eliminate the factors that cause the imbalance of the body system and various components, restore balance, strengthen the physique, prevent or reduce.
    The occurrence of future diseases.

    Regulating diet is an important treatment in Ayurveda medicine. This is because the human body is considered a product of food. 
    The mental state and temperament of an individual are affected by the food they eat. 
    Food is first transformed into milk moose in the human body, and then into blood, muscle, fat, bones, bone marrow, reproductive elements and essence.

    Therefore, food is the basis of all metabolism and life activities. Lack of nutrition or inefficient conversion of food can lead to various diseases.
    Common treatments include medications, special food therapies, and proper exercise as directed by your doctor.

    These three measures are implemented in two ways

    One is to take the three measures against the disease itself in response to the onset of the disease and various symptoms. The other is to take these three measures to eliminate the similar causes and symptoms during the onset of disease Impact.

    Ayurvedic medicine has a very detailed analysis and description of the various stages and states of the disease's pathogenesis to the final symptoms.
    This gives the medical system a great advantage in inferring disease before latent symptoms appear. At the same time, its role in disease prevention has been strengthened, so that effective and effective treatment measures can be taken in advance to prevent the further development of the disease, or reasonable measures can be taken to cure the disease in the initial stage of the disease.

    Can Dolphins Live in Fresh Water?

    Is it Possible for Dolphins to Live in Fresh Water? We are very familiar with dolphins and fin-less porpoises, but dolphins and fin-less porpoises are both in the same family.  Why is there a difference between finless porpoise and porpoise?  Can dolphins follow the estuary and live in the big rivers?   Let me start with the answer: a small part can, the vast majority cannot. The reason is simply three sentences: can’t swim, eat, and live.   In detail, it may be longer and boring. You must be mentally prepared.   At present, whether it is fossil evidence or molecular biology research, it is still believed that cetaceans have a single origin, that is, the current whales and dolphins evolved from the same ancestor.  Of course, various whales and dolphins have embarked on their own different evolutionary paths. To this day, more than 80 kinds of whales and dolphins with completely different body shapes, habits and distribution areas have been evolved.  From the physical stru
