    The ancient Chinese actually sent their best scholars to India to learn the Ayurveda system, perhaps the oldest in the world. (perhaps even the Egyptians, or perhaps as often happens discoveries occur simultaneously – but it is well known the Chinese were taught this system by the Indian priests, and scholars).


    History of Ayurveda

    Ayurveda is thought by many scholars to be the oldest healing
    system on earth. Approximately 4,000 years ago, Indo-Europeans moved
    into the Indus Valley and found an ancient civilization still
    flourishing with cities, agriculture, organized religion and
    sophisticated art and architecture. From the fusion of these two
    cultures, Vedic culture and sciences emerged…………

    People from many parts of the ancient world traveled along the Silk Road
    to India to learn Ayurvedic medicine. Chinese, Tibetans, Greeks,
    Romans, Egyptians, Afghanis, Persians, and others traveled to absorb the
    wisdom and bring it back to their own countries.

    Ayurvedic institutions
    of higher learning, including Nalanda at Patna were established and
    supplemented the guru system. Ayurveda became the basis of the healing
    traditions of Tibet, Sri Lanka, Burma and influenced Chinese medicine.

    Many great Buddhist sages were also Ayurvedic doctors. The influence of
    Ayurveda in Greek medicine is evidenced by the central importance of
    humors, elements, qualities and seasons. The emphasis on the genesis of
    illness as written by Hippocrates and a treatise by Plato also exhibit
    the influence of Ayurveda. The trade in herbs and spices along the Silk
    Road brought concepts of Ayurvedic nutrition and herbology to the west.
