HEALING TOUCH OF AYURVEDA IN TANDEM WITH THE MOTHER NATURE

 

What is Ayurveda

The word “Ayurveda” has derived out of fusion of two separate words - “Ayu” i.e. life and “veda” i.e. knowledge. Thus in literal meaning Ayurveda is the science of life. Ayurveda, a traditional form of medicine has been in practice for over 5000 years and is now recognised by WHO as one of the most effective traditional alternative medicinal systems in existence in the world. In fact, history crowns Ayurveda as 'the mother of all medicines'. The most sacred and oldest among all sciences, Ayurveda itself is considered to be a complete system of medicine which helps to maintain a perfect harmony between man and nature.
