NoteStreams By Susan Shane
Similar to the origins of Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine has both mythological and historical beginnings. According to myth and religion, the god, Brahma, was in charge of creation while the god, Vishnu, was responsible for preserving creation, and the god, Shiva, had the ability to destroy creation. All of these gods represented one Ultimate God and created the first man, Manu.
This NoteStream covers the rich and ongoing history of Ayurvedic Medicine from this very early legend all the way to its modern day role as the largest medical organization in the world.
