Ayurveda is traditional Indian Medicine. The word Ayurveda means the “Science of Life”. It is a compilation of ancient Indian medical knowledge that dates back to Vedic times.
Health in Ayurveda is a fully functional dynamic balance of the three constitution elements (Doshas), Vata, Pitta and Kapha. This balance is affected by environmental factors, changes in lifestyle, age as well as by diseases. Ayurveda recommends herbal preparations and external treatments along with lifestyle and dietary changes to reinstate a health equilibrium. Ayurveda also focuses on preventive healthcare and is a way of life. Panchakarma treatments that remove toxins and metabolic wastes from the body is a unique feature of Ayurveda.
