Ayurveda is considered by many scholars to be the oldest healing science. In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means "The Science of Life." Ayurveda evolved more than 5 000 years ago in India. This system of medicine stresses on the prevention of the ailments of the body in addition to curing them. Today, it is a unique, indispensable branch of medicine - a complete naturalistic system that depends on the diagnosis of your body's humours - vata, pitta and kapha - to achieve the right balance.
It lays emphasis on preventative and healing therapies along with various methods of purification and rejuvenation. It is more than a mere healing system; it is a science and an art of appropriate living and helps achieve longevity. It can guide an individual in the proper choice of diet, living habits and exercise to restore balance of body, mind and consciousness.
Balance is emphasized; suppressing natural urges is seen to be unhealthy, and doing so may almost certainly lead to illness. However, people are cautioned to stay within the limits of reasonable balance and measure. For example, emphasis is placed on moderation of food intake, sleep, sexual intercourse, and the intake of medicine.
