Ayurveda , the science of life, prevention and longevity is the oldest and most holistic medical system available on the planet today. It was placed in written form over 5,000 years ago in India, it was said to be a world medicine dealing with both body and the spirit. Before the advent of writing, …the ancient wisdom of this healing system was a part of the spiritual tradition of the Sanatana Dharma (Universal Religion), or Vedic Religion. VedaVyasa, the famous sage, shaktavesha avatar of Vishnu, put into writing the complete knowledge of Ayurveda, along with the more directly spiritual insights of self realization into a body of scriptural literature called the Vedas and the Vedic literatures.. There were originally four main books of spirituality, which included among other topics, health, astrology, spiritual business, government, army, poetry and spiritual living and behavior. These books are known as the four Vedas; Rik, Sama, Yajur and Atharva. The Rik Veda, a compilation of verse on the nature of existence, is the oldest surviving book of any Indo-European language (3000 B.C.). The Rik Veda (also known as Rig Veda) refers to the cosmology known as Sankhya which lies at the base of both Ayurveda and Yoga, contains verses on the nature of health and disease, pathogenesis and principles of treatment. Among the Rik Veda are found discussions of the three dosas, Vayu. Pitta and Kapha, and the use of herbs to heal the diseases of the mind and body and to foster longevity. The Atharva Veda lists the eight divisions of Ayurveda: Internal Medicine, Surgery of Head and Neck, Opthamology and Otorinolaryngology, Surgery, Toxicology, Psychiatry, Pediatrics, Gerontology or Science of Rejuvenation, and the Science of Fertility. The Vedic Sages took the passages from the Vedic Scriptures relating to Ayurveda and compiled separate books dealing only with Ayurveda. One of these books, called the Atreya Samhita is the oldest medical book in the world! The Vedic Brahmanas were not only priests performing religious rites and ceremonies, they also became Vaidyas (physicians of Ayurveda). The sage-physician-surgeons of the time were the same sages or seers, deeply devoted holy people, who saw health as an integral part of spiritual life. It is said that they received their training of Ayurveda through direct cognition during meditation. In other words, the knowledge of the use of various methods of healing, prevention, longevity and surgery came through Divine revelation; there was no guessing or testing and harming animals. These revelations were transcribed from the oral tradition into book form, interspersed with the other aspects of life and spirituality. What is fascinating is Ayurveda's use of herbs, foods, aromas, gems, colors, yoga, mantras, lifestyle and surgery. Consequently Ayurveda grew into a respected and widely used system of healing in India. Around 1500 B.C., Ayurveda was delineated into eight specific branches of medicine. There were two main schools of Ayurveda at that time. Atreya- the school of physicians, and Dhanvantari - the school of surgeons. These two schools made Ayurveda a more scientifically verifiable and classifiable medical system. People from numerous countries came to Indian Ayurvedic schools to learn about this world medicine and the religious scriptures it sprang from. Learned men from China, Tibet, the Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Afghanistanis, Persians, and more traveled to learn the complete wisdom and bring it back to their own countries. Ayurvedic texts were translated in Arabic and under physicians such as Avicenna and Razi Sempion, both of whom quoted Indian Ayurvedic texts, established Islamic medicine. This style became popular in Europe, and helped to form the foundation of the European tradition in medicine.. In 16th Century Europe, Paracelsus, who is known as the father of modem Western medicine, practiced and propagated a system of medicine which borrowed heavily from Ayurveda.. There are two main re-organizers of Ayurveda whose works are still existing in tact today - Charak and Sushrut. The third major treatise is called the Ashtanga Hridaya, which is a concise version of the works of Charak and Sushrut. Thus the three main Ayurvedic texts that are still used today are the Charak Samhita (compilation of the oldest book Atreya Samhita), Sushrut Samhita and the Ashtangha Hridaya Samhita. These books are believed to be over 1,200 years old. It is because these texts still contain the original and complete knowledge of this Ayurvedic. prashantha venkataswamy. email@example.com (MORE)
Ancient Egyptian medicine is some of the oldest recorded. Eachbranch of medicine had its own name, just as they do today. Doctorswere known as 'snwn' and proctologists were called 'neru phuyt.'
The Ancient Greeks had a balanced medical system. They believed that the gods made you ill, but they also believed in more logical medicines is well. The main one is the Theory Of The Four Humours, Phlegm, Black Bile Yellow Bile and Blood. When you became Ill, it meant that one of your four hu…mours was out of balance, so you either had too much phlegm or too much yellow bile. If you had a a fever it was down to too much yellow bile- this would be treated with its opposite, phlegm, so the doctor would prescribe cold baths. A cold- too much phlegm, this is treated with opposites too, so the doctor would prescribe warm beds and wine. As you can see this was an incorrect, yet logical way of thinking. However they did also believe that the gods made you ill. Asclepios was the god of medicine. If you were ill, say you had flu then you would be sent to an asclepius temple where you would stay until you were healed. It is said that while staying there in a vision Asclepios (the god) and his two daughters (Panacea and Hygieia) would visit them in the night, they would bring with them snakes that would crawl all over you. Once awakening the patient would be cured. People who stayed there, engraved in to slabs of stone their story of how they got better. They all believe it was the work of Asclepios. However many historians now believe that it was because of the fresh air and exercise that came with the stay at Asclepios's temple. (MORE)

In ancient Rome, the medicine was based upon ideas from Galen predominantly, however he was proven wrong in some circumstances e.g: the rete mirable of the brain only exists on pigs not humans and so on. Unlike now, dissection of humans in ancient Rome was banned (due to Church), so therefore all me…dical theories came from the dissection of animals. This would obviously lead to some unusual findings! (MORE)

People who had the talent. They were originally usually travellingbards who went from city to city composing and singing their works,and varying them to avoid repetition. As these efforts developed with the invention of cursive writinginto set pieces, specialist writers emerged. These were usuallyc…itizens in various cities, who added this activity to their othercallings, and produced plays for the various religious festivalswhere they were performed for the honour of the gods (andentertainment of the male populace). Successful plays spreadthroughout the Greek world. There were a great many successful writers who won prizes for thebest plays at the festivals each year.

Why ancient Greek comedians of course! buh-dump psh! Actually it is that simple, unless you want names. If so, Aristophanes and Menander are pretty good. However, this is largely pretty mature stuff. Aristophanes wrote a play telling how the Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta ended, the …women of Greece collectively withheld sex from their husbands (even the prostitutes stopped, and that was a pretty heavy business since most men didn't marry until their late 20s, thirties). Some of Aristophanes' stuff was so raunchy that it wasn't properly translated for a while. Naturally, I highly recommend Aristophanes. (MORE)

Ancient India is one of the first civilisations, inhabited by the old Indo-Aryan ethnic group.
Medicine in the form of folk remedies has been around almost as long as there have been people. Much of medicine was also bound up with superstition and religion. Ancient China, India, Babylonia, and other cultures also made strides in medicine. If Greek medicine was different, it was because the Gr…eeks began to systematize medicine in a rational way, observing systems, taking the patient's history, and prescribing specific treatments for specific ailments. Yet it must be said that some medicos in other cultures did so as well. What the Geeks did was to set up schools and libraries to systematize the the learning, so that the available knowledge was not limited to one person's experience. (MORE)
