Answer by Dr.dhananjaya Bhupathi
1. Traditional Chinese Medicines-TCM’s view of the body places little emphasis on anatomical structures, but is mainly concerned with the identification of functional entities (which regulate digestion, breathing, aging etc.). While health is perceived as harmonious interaction of these entities and the outside world, disease is interpreted as a disharmony in interaction. TCM diagnosis consists in tracing symptoms to patterns of an underlying disharmony, mainly by palpating the pulse and inspecting the tongue.
2. The God told Rishis/Sanyasis indulged in Meditation/Tapasya on ‘purpose and value of human life’. God’s oral guidance was written in Sanskrit and compiled in 4 books-Vedas-Rigveda Sama veda, Atarve veda and Yajurveda. Whereas Rigveda dealt with Ayurved and Acupresure Techniques for instant diagnosis of any disease and or the affected ogan[s].
Ayurveda (Sanskrit: आयुर्वेद; Āyurveda, “life-knowledge”; English pronunciation /ˌaɪ.ərˈveɪdə/) or ayurvedic medicine is a Hindu system of traditional medicine native to India and a form of alternative medicine. The oldest known ayurvedic text are Suśruta Saṃhitā and the Charaka Saṃhitā, encyclopedias of medicine compiled in Classical Sanskrit are among the foundational and formally compiled works of Ayurveda.
By the medieval period, ayurvedic practitioners developed a number of medicinal preparations and surgical procedures for the treatment of various ailments. Current practices derived (or reportedly derived) from Ayurvedic medicine are regarded as part of complementary and alternative medicine.
Safety concerns have been raised about Ayurveda, with two U.S. studies finding about 20 percent of Ayurvedic Indian-manufactured patent medicines contained toxic levels of heavy metals such as lead, mercury and arsenic. Other concerns include the use of herbs containing toxic compounds and the lack of quality control in Ayurvedic facilities.
Keeping in view of American criticism, a century old Ayuirveda medicine manufacturer has comeout with safe herbal patented nutritional supplements for curing almost of all the human diseses/syndromes.
