Archaeological evidence indicates that the use of medicinal plants for treatment of illness was prevalent approximately 60,000 years ago. A number of ancient cultures such as Egypt, Greek, Bronze Age China and even the Romans wrote on plants and their medical uses, and attest to the vast knowledge and highly successful Ayurveda medical system that existed in ancient India.
Ayurveda has been an integral part of Indian culture and traces its origins to pre-historic times. The Charak Samhita and Susruta Samhita are two of the most ancient treatise on Ayurveda.
The Ishan Ayurvedic Medical College and Research Centre was established with an aim to restore the glory of Ayurveda through quality education imparted to hungry minds. While there is no dearth of Ayurvedic medical practitioners in India, there is a need to streamline scientific Ayurvedic medical science education and offer it to young students who wish to practice Ayurveda as a form of medicine.
The institution strives to maintain the rich heritage of Ayurveda and live up to the legacy of the Indian physicians of old, who were one with nature, and cured every illness using herbs and plants, and spread their knowledge across the world. What started as a form of personal social responsibility of the eminent philanthropist and educationist Dr.D.K.Garg led to the founding of Ishan Ayurvedic Medical College and Research Center. Join the movement, embrace the rich heritage of our culture and return to harmony with Mother Nature.
