Muniyal Ayurveda took its inspiration from Late Dr. U. Krishna Muniyal, who practiced Ayurveda for more than 40 years and was the disciple of Pandith Taranath, a great Ayurveda scholar who had treated Mahatma Gandhi several times. Pandith Taranath used to perform Parak„ya Pravesha (one's consciousness entering into another's body) while treating the patient. Ancestors of the Muniyal family used to treat patients with all types of ailments successfully by using holy water enchanted with sacred and auspicious hymns.

Ayurveda, 'The Science of Life', considered to be one of the upavedas, has been serving the mankind for more than 4000 years and still survives just because of its sheer therapeutic value. In the scientific findings, which have proved that ayurvedic medicines cure the diseases by strengthening the body immune system now considered to be the most scientific approach towards health, the relevancy of ayurvedic remedies become significant.
The greatness of
can be summed up with the help of a single Shloka in Sanskrit pertaining to the definition of "Swasthya" disease less state.
"SAMA DOSHA SAMA DHATHU SAMAGNISCHA MALA KRIYAHA PRASANNATHMENDRIYA MANH SWASTHYA ITHYABHIDEYATHE"
This means that the human being is considered to be completely healthy only when the body constituents namely tridoshas, seven dhathus, effluents like three "malas", athma, Panchendriyas and manas are all in equilibrium state.
This shows that ayurveda has given equal importance to mind, body and soul white treating the patient.
As you know truth is always very simple. Likewise, the basic principles of ayurveda are very simple to understand. According to ayurveda, the whole universe is made up of "Panchamahabhootas", namely, Prithvi, Aap, Teja, Vayu and Akasha. That means even the human body and the plant kingdom are made up of the same basic constituents, and human body is controlled by 3 basic principles or "Tridhoshas" namely, Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The balanced state of these tridoshas (doshasamya) is called health. On the other hand, the imbalance state of these tridoshas (doshavaishamya) causes disease.
In aggravated conditions of Vata, Pita and Kapha doshas, ayurveda suggested Vatahara (hara=pacify), Pittahara and Kaphahara plants. On the other hand in decreased conditions of Vata, Pitta and Kapha doshas, ayurveda suggests Vatakara (kara=enhance), Pittakara and Kafakara plants.
