Maharshi Charak- Father of Madicine

Maharshi Charak is well known as a Ayurveda Visharad. He was the king of the Kushan state. Charaka Samhita composed by him is a famous Ayurveda book. It mentions curative and prophylactic drugs and describes the consumption and consumption of metals like gold, silver, iron, mercury etc. Acharya Charaka added few space and chapter to Agniveshtra of Acharya Agnivesh and gave it a great look which we all know today as Charaka Samhita. Charaksamhita is famous in Ayurveda.

It is known from the ancient Vemayana parishikhan that in those days the Granth or Tantra was composed in the name of a branch. Like the Kathopanishad was formed in the Kath branch. Branches or Charan were schools in those days, where various subjects were studied. Therefore, it is possible that Charaka Samhita has been rewarded in Charaka branch.

Some words of Pali literature are found in Charakasamhita, such as Avakranti, Jentak (Jantak - Vinayapitaka), Bhangodana, Khuddak, Bhootdhatri (for sleep). With this, the sermon of Charaksamhita is fixed after the Upanishads and before the Buddha. It was revived around 78 AD at the time of Kanishka.

The Chinese translation of the Tripitaka mentions Charaka as the king of the Kanishka. But Kanishka was Buddhist and his poet Ashwaghosh was also Buddhist, but there is a strong refutation of Buddhism in Charaka Samhita. Therefore, the relationship between Charak and Kanishka seems to be not only doubtful but impossible. In the absence of sufficient evidence, it is difficult to settle the vote.

Therefore, first of all the reasons that affect the patient, then it should be treated. The more important thing is to avoid disease and not cure. "

Charaka was the first physician who gave the concept of digestion, metabolism (process related to food-digestion) and body immunity. According to them, defects are caused due to bile, phlegm and air in the body. These defects occur when blood, flesh and marrow react to the food eaten.

Charaka has also clarified here that food eaten in the same quantity causes different defects in different bodies, that is, one body is different from another body. He said that disease arises when all the three defects of the body become imbalanced. To balance them, he made many medicines.
