Ayurveda, the science of life and longevity, is the oldest healthcare system in the world which is believed to be born in the land of India about 5000 years ago. It combines the profound thoughts of medicine and way of life. Today, it’s a unique, indispensable branch of medicine, a complete naturalistic system that depends on the diagnosis of your body’s humours – vata, pitta and kapha – to achieve the right balance.
Ayurveda has a health-oriented approach, while modern medicine has largely had a disease-oriented approach. Modern medicine is only now stressing to some extent the role of mind in health and disease, while in Ayurveda the basic approach incorporates body, mind and soul.
