Bad health is said to occur when they are out of balance. Maintaining a harmony between the different elements is the key to the ayurvedic concept. Four thousand year old references to the Nasatya are found in the now extinct, Hurrian and Hittite languages in Turkey, and in the Sanskrit language in India. Ayurveda is considered the upaveda or accessory Veda to the Atharva Veda. The four Vedas are the world's oldest literary documents in an Indo-European language.
Ayurveda's lasting influence in the non Indo-European sphere began after the rise and spread of Buddhism in the 6th century B.C.E. Buddhist monks introduced Ayurveda to China, Tibet, Korea, Mongolia and Sri Lanka, leaving a lasting legacy in their medical systems.
More recently, the German translation of an ayurvedic text that dates back to less than 1000 B.C.E., the Susruta Samhita, contributed to modern medicine the discipline of plastic surgery. Susruta mentions eight branches in ayurveda - General medicine, Surgery, ENT and Eye diseases, Toxicology, Psychiatry, Pediatrics, Gynecology, Sexology and Virility.

Recently there has been a shift in universal trend from synthetic to herbal medicine, which we can say ‘Return to Nature’. Medicinal plants have been known for millennia and are highly esteemed all over the world as a rich source of therapeutic agents for the prevention of diseases and ailments.
The demand for ayurvedic formulations is increasing both in the domestic market as well as internationally. According to some estimates, the domestic sales are growing at an annual rate of 20 per cent while the international market for medicinal plant-based products is estimated to be growing at 7 per cent per annum. However, India has a very insignificant share of the international herbal medicine market although it is one of the biggest reservoirs of plant resources.
Given the rapidly increasing demand, there is tremendous pressure on the supply base. This has reached crisis point for some species.It is reported that certain species of Medicinal plants have already become extinct through over-harvesting, and other species are endangered. Drug manufacturers make use of alternative species when the ‘first choice’ is no longer available. However, there are reports that even some of the ‘second best’ alternatives are now facing extinction.
Further, there are concerns about maintaining the quality of supplies.There are a number of potential (and some actual) responses to this demand-supply gap. These include substitution of raw material, import of medicinal plants, cultivation of plants by the corporate ayurvedic industry, cultivation of plants by farmers and enhancing production from natural habitats. In addition to these attempts to address the demand-supply crisis, there is a long-established response, which represents an unofficial, illegal response by sections of the industry, that is the use of adulterants.
There is widespread use of traditional medicines in India and this is predicted to increase.
The World Health Organisation estimates that over 80 per cent of the world’s population relies on traditional plant-based medicine for their primary health care needs. During the last decade the demand for medicinal plants has grown significantly in Europe and elsewhere. The international market for medicinal plant-based products is estimated to be US$ 60 billion and is growing at the rate of 7 per cent per annum In Germany and France many herbs and herbal extracts are used as prescription drugs and their sales in the European Union were around US$ 6 billion in 1991 (and probably over US$ 20 billion now). In USA, herbal drugs are currently sold in health food stores and had a turnover of around US$ 4 billion in 1996, which was anticipated to double by the turn of the century. Nutraceuticals (nutritionally or medicinally enhanced foods with health benefits) are in great demand in the developed countries particularly USA and Japan. The nutraceutical market in USA alone is about US$ 80–250 billion, with a similar market in Europe.
