The ancient sages made intricate contributions to our understanding of disease causes and even provided information on the likelihood of genetic transmission and treatment methods. The 'natural medical system' known as Ayurveda, which promotes health via the use of herbs and other materials, has its roots in India and dates back more than 5,000 years. Examining the contributions of ancient Indian physicians Atreya, Jivaka, and Vagbhata to medical science must be the study's main goal. Method: The study is descriptive in nature and is primarily based on secondary source data that has been gathered from various sources. Findings: Indian medical knowledge diffused around the world and has been used in some regions of the world either exactly as it was in the past or in a modified manner. Conclusion: In ancient India, Atreya, Jivaka, and Vagbhata all made substantial contributions to the country's healthcare systems. Their important findings and revolutionary theories still have an impact on how we design medical procedures.
