WHAT IS AYURVEDA ?
“AYURVEDA” the word itself is derived from two Sanskrit words- AYU: meaning ‘life’, VEDA : meaning ‘knowledge’.
Ayurveda in most simple words can be defined as the ancient system of holistic healing from India. It is till date enjoying a widespread resurgence in popularity.
According to hindu text the science of ayurveda was first initiated by Brahma the creator of life in brahma samhita. Ayurvedic principles, techniques and formulations were eventually laid down in many texts by Charaka and Sushruta.
Eventually it was studied and induced into life by the vaidyas and gradually it flourished in India millions of years ago and is still practised in the 21st century.
A holistic approach of healing Ayurveda — The Science of Life — is based on the twin principles of Treating the whole body by Balancing the body with nature.
As a holistic healing tradition Ayurveda recommends treating the whole person-body, mind, senses, emotions and spirit-instead of following the one-cause-one-cure principle and focusing on the symptoms of the moment.
Ayurveda has great impact on four essential substantials of an individual known as mind, body, senses and soul.
