The word, ‘Ayurveda’ derived from two Sanskrit terms, literally means: the knowledge of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge) is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing. By giving advice for food, conduct, every day and seasonal routines, and the right use of our senses, Ayurveda prompts us that health is the balanced and dynamic combination of our environment, body, mind, and spirit. Ayurveda believes in the concepts such as agni, balam, tri-gunas, tri-doshas, pancha-bhutas, sapta-dhaatus, shat-kalas and tri-malas. Even though curbed during years of foreign invasion, Ayurveda has been enjoying a major resurgence in its native land as well as gaining popularity throughout the West, as its treatment modalities are more appropriate for treating the ailments of the contemporary world. This holistic treatment involves several kinds of massage and oil applications, inhalations, diet, and natural medicines and the treatment plans are as separate for everyone.
