The Goodness of Ayurveda
Ayurveda is an Indian system of medical treatment that has evolved over millenniums. Culled from ancient Vedic literature and refined through centuries of painstaking practice, Ayurveda is the synthesis of human knowledge about various physical and mental ailments that afflict mankind, and the herbal based preventive/remedial options available to combat them.
The Science of Life
Ayurveda is literally the combination of two Sanskrit words: Ayu meaning Life, and Veda meaning Knowledge. Like every great body of knowledge, the origin of Ayurveda is lost in hoary history. For the wise men who devoted their entire lives to the study of life sustaining medicines, Ayurveda was not about defying death. Rather it was about prolonging youth and keeping diseases at bay.
