About Ayurveda

What is Ayurveda? Ayurveda is the oldest surviving complete medical system in the world. Offering a rich, comprehensive outlook to a healthy life, its origins go back nearly 5000 years. Ayu = Life Veda = Science Ayurveda = Science of Life The word Ayurveda is derived from ancient Sanskrit and literally means the 'science of life'. Unlike other traditional medicinal systems, Ayurveda is more focused on simple and logical therapies. It is in fact a set of practical and simple guidelines for long life and good health.  Having stood the test of time, this magnificent system of holistic medicine and living reveals knowledge about life and health. This has proven true from the time that the early Indian sages shared their wisdom and knowledge of this science. The basic feature of ayurveda is the internal harmony of one's body as well as body’s harmony with the surrounding nature and environment. Ayurveda is recognised all over the world & is recognised by WHO. Ayurveda Concepts Unlike other medicinal systems, Ayurveda focuses more on healthy living than treatment of diseases.  The main concept of Ayurveda is that it personalises the healing process. According to Ayurveda, the human body is composed of four basics - the dosha, dhatu, mala and agni. There is immense significance of all these basics of the body in Ayurveda. These are also called the Mool Siddhant or the basic fundamentals of Ayurvedic treatment.
