The word ‘Ayurveda’ literally means ‘Science of life’. This five-millennium old system of medicine is often said to be the precursor to all kinds of modern medicines. As per Ayurveda, most diseases are caused due to imbalance among the body’s three humors: Vata (nerve energy), Pitta (catabolic life energy) and Kapha (anabolic nutritive energy). Ayurvedic medicines are gaining popularity all over the world because of theirmiraculous curing abilities and negligible side effects. In certain states of India, it has been made mandatory to recruit Ayurveda doctors in government hospitals. Such provisions have increased the career scope in the Ayurveda field.


In India, research in Ayurveda is undertaken by the Ministry of AYUSH, an abbreviation for the Department of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy, through a national network of research institutes.
Rasa shastra, the practice of adding metals, minerals or gems to herbal preparations, may include toxic heavy metals such as lead, mercury and arsenic. The public health implications of metals in rasashastra in India is unknown. Adverse reactions to herbs are described in traditional Ayurvedic texts, but practitioners are reluctant to admit that herbs could be toxic and that reliable information on herbal toxicity is not readily available. There is a communication gap between practitioners of modern medicine and Ayurveda.
