Ayurveda (ancient Indian medicine, Ayurveda Medicine, Ayurv
Allegedly, the "most complete" system of "natural medicine" and the "mother of all healing arts." Ayurvedic theory posits a "subtle anatomy" that includes: (a) nadis, "canals" that carry prana ("cosmic energy") throughout the body; (b) chakras, "centers of consciousness" that connect body and soul; and (c) marmas, points on the body beneath which "vital structures" (physical and/or "subtle") intersect. Ayurvedic ostensible diagnosis involves examination of the eyes, face, lips, tongue, nails, and pulse. Ayurvedists associate parts of the lips and tongue, for example, with internal organs and maintain that discolorations, lines, cracks, and irritability in various areas indicate disorders in "corresponding" organs. The pulse is important because of the belief that the heart is the seat of the underlying intelligence of nature: allegedly, human consciousness. (See "classical Indian medicine.")
classical Indian medicine (ancient Indian medicine, Ayurveda, classical Ayurveda, classic Hindu medicine, traditional Ayurveda, traditional Indian medicine)
A group of certain of the ancient indigenous medical ways of India that stems principally from two ancient treatises--the Caraka Samhita and the Susruta Samhita. Both describe Ayurveda's source as divine.
