Dr. Neelam Negi

Abstract: Ayurveda is the oldest medical system of India. It is described in abundance in Indian historical and non - historical literature. Ayurveda is called Upveda of Atharvaveda. The first description of Ayurveda is found in Rigveda and Atharvaveda, and the period of their composition is considered to be 2000 BC [1]. Before the colonial rule, Ayurveda was the main medical system in India, but after the promotion and spread of modern medicine by the colonial rule, the Ayurvedic medical system got marginalized and the modern medical system completely took its place. In the presented research paper, a study of Ayurvedic medical system and the impact of colonial rule on it have been presented in the Garhwal region of Uttarakhand.
