  • Derpy_Redneck reply This was originally uploaded to youtube on August 27, 2016 2:16 PM I talk about a guy named Charaka who was a PIONEER in Ayurvedic Medicine as well as early forms of Scientific Scrutiny in medicine and SO MUCH MORE folks, this motherfucker was around 3-4000 years ago OR AT LEAST long before Siddharta Gautama the Buddha came around and the Greek Civilization hit its peak. Here are some references to Charaka and Hippocrates.
