Ayurveda (science of life) is an ancient system of natural healing. It predates the Chinese medical system, and the basic Ayurvedic science was written down (in the Atharva Veda). Ayurvedic science gives extremely detailed descriptions of versatile medical techniques and is said to have been brought into this world by the incarnation of Vishnu known as Dhanvantari.


It was systematized two thousand and five hundred years ago by the sages Charaka and Sushruta, who are known as the founding fathers of science, health, and healing. Sushruta, the inventor of Ayurvedic surgery, oversaw complex and delicate surgical practices such as cesarean sections, cataract surgeries, and neurosurgery.


The works of Charaka and Sushruta - Charaka-samhita and Sushruta-samhita - are still valid. These detailed medical books are highly respected because the ancient Vedic doctors who wrote them were mystics, seers (rishi) and were able to grasp the inner workings of the human body with the insight gained through meditation. Today, these insights can be confirmed by comparing ancient Vedic medicine with modern medical discoveries (for example, Vedic scriptures detail monthly fetal developments).


It contains an immense source of information spanning topics such as Ayurveda, pediatrics, obstetrics, internal medicine, gynecology and otolaryngology, and anesthesiology, arthroplasty and plastic surgery.


Ayurveda describes the psychophysical state of man with three doshas (temperament): vata (air or wind), pitta (fire or bile), and kapha (earth or mucus). Based on the general condition of the person, one of these temperaments predominates. Ayurvedic scriptures say that illness is caused by an imbalance in these vital temperaments.


According to Ayurveda, health is achieved by the right balance of the doshas. Doshas are balanced by highly individualized adjustments in diet, regular daily activities, and hygiene, environment, and thought patterns. The medicinal use of food and herbs is an important part of Ayurvedic science and is determined by body type and constitution for each individual.


Dr. Somit Kumar has been the Head of Medical Department and Head of Clinical Pharmacology & Interdisciplinary Research at The Arya Vaidhya Chikitsalayam Research Institute in Coimbature, India Since 2005. He completed his MSc in Ayurvedic Pharmacology and specializes in clinical Rheumatology.


At the same time, he is carrying out his doctorate on the Standardization of Anti-Diabetic Formulation at the University of Latvia. He has been involved in NIH studies on the effect of Ayurveda on Rheumatoid Arthritis and is currently working as a co-researcher in an evaluation study measuring the effectiveness of Ayurvedic treatment for Diabetes 2 type and a genetic disorder DMD (Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy).


Dr. Somit has been working in the field of Rheumatology, skin diseases, digestive, liver disorders and neurological diseases as a result of his continuous practice of Panchakarmatechnic for 10 years in Kerala. His clinical consultations include advice on diet and lifestyle, Ayurvedic medicines, Yoga and scientific consultation. He is also on the editorial staff of "Ancient Science of Life" and "Journal of Clinical Rheumatology in Ayurveda".


He travels the world due to his international seminars, training programs and consultations in countries such as Malaysia, Singapore, Brazil, Turkey, Slovenia, Hungary, Netherlands, Lithuania, Poland, Latvia and Italy. He is in the core staff of the training academy that prepares regular short-term Ayurveda orientation programs prepared by AVP for students in countries such as Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Japan, Switzerland and Latvia.
