Ayurveda evolved around 5000 years ago in India. Ayurveda literally means "science of life and longevity." It is a traditional holistic system of medicine and health care. It's 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.
Ayurveda believes in the treatment of not just the affected part, but the individual as a whole. Making it the natural way to refresh yourself, eliminate all toxic imbalances from the body and thus regain resistance and good health. It looks at healing in holistic fashion. The physical treatment has overtones of physical and psychological approaches too. Any ailment of the body is seen as a combination of factors with special reference to the components of diet.
