NATURE'S MEDICINE : AYURVEDA
From him originate many of the special mineral or alchemical preparations (rasas) still prepared and used in India today. Tibetan medicine thus is also predominately Ayurvedic with a mixture of Chinese influence. 

The older Greek medicine used in Europe until the seventeenth century and still used in Islamic countries and by the Muslims of India (called Unnani medicine) is very similar to Ayurveda. It employs a four humor rather than a three humor model. It is still used in India among the Islamic doctors and Ayurvedic and Unnani medicines are commonly used together. Hence Ayurvedic knowledge has had a broad application and remains relevant to the main natural healing traditions in the world. 

Ayurveda in its origins is an integral part of the most ancient Rig Veda. The three main Vedic Gods, Indra, Agni and Soma, relate to the three Doshas or biological humors of Ayurveda as Vata (air), Pitta (fire) and Kapha (water). Indra has the energy of air and the life-force and is often equated with it as Vata or Vayu. Agni is fire and Soma, the essential energy of water. The Vedic chants provide the sound vibrations which balance the three humors in the body and open up their subtle potentials in the mind. From them a complete mantra therapy for disease can be derived.
