“Ayurveda is the oldest system of holistic medicine in the world. The sages of Ancient India passed on the wisdom of Ayurveda to mankind through the ages for over 5000 years.
Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word where “Ayu” refers to all aspects of life and nature, and “Veda” means knowledge or learning at the deepest level. Known as the science of life, Ayurveda treats the person as a whole – a combination of body, mind, and spirit.Prevention is a key tenet in Ayurveda. The Ayurvedic approach to health emphasizes prevention of illness, rather than simply waiting to cure it. Ayurveda also teaches us how to live in harmony with the laws of nature in our daily and seasonal routines.
