What is Ayurveda?
AYURVEDA-Science of Life- is an ancient Indian medical science aimed at the prevention and cure of illness, through the restoration and manitenacne of the fundamental balance of the principles(Vata, Pitha, Kapha) in living beings as a whole- body, mind, and spirit. In other words, empower the individual to attain and sustain balance within him/herself- body, mind and spirit through restoring harmony with Nature.
Key Elements of Ayurveda:
Preventive and Curative practices have evolved over 5,000 years and include complex combinations of natural resources (preparation) which have neither adverse nor contraindicative effects, Panchkarma (five kinds of therapies like medicated oil massage and oil drop), emetics breathing exercises. With its "emphasis on health, as much as on curing illness". Ayurveda is very likely the most complete health system developed thus far for human problems.
Dr. A. P. J Abdul Kalam, Hon. Former President of India says:
"Health can be maintained and diseases can be prevented. Though technology is advancing, people are still falling sick. Health care costs keep on increasing, and there is no way to reduce that unless you introduce prevention. The best prevention is through Ayurveda, because it is a very comprehensive system. It is based on natural medicine which is devoid of toxicity."
