What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is the most ancient science of life. Known as the mother of all medical systems. Currently, Ayurveda is experiencing world-wide popularity as a revival sweeps in all continents. This ancient philosophy employs the application of nutritional guidance, herbal medicines, exercise therapy, meditation and many rejuvenation and purification therapies. The treatment is focused on the type of person who has the disease rather than just treating the disease. It is a patient-oriented system of healing body, mind and spirit.

According to Ayurveda one can achieve health through daily routine. Prescriptions may include when to wake up, when to exercise and what type to do, what spices and foods will benefit you and what foods and activities to limit.
