During the 500-600 B.C., Agasthya, Charaka, Sushrutha, Kashyapa, etc. the very knowledgeable philosophers churned from the vedas the references to all illness, diseases, drug-medicines and compiled the samhitas.
It is from this samhitas that the physicians later absorbed the knowledge of Ayurveda and applied them for Preventing as well as curing illness. Ayurveda is not only the ancient Indian science of preventative health and healing but also a philosophy of living.
