The term comes from two Indian words: ayur, or life, and veda, or knowledge.
Ayurveda medicine is described as a " knowledge of how to live," stressing that good health is the responsibility of the individual.
Illness is seen in terms of imbalance, with herbs and dietary controls used to restore equilibrium.
The earliest text from this science date to 2500 B.C. with successive invaders adding new herbal traditions: the Persians in 500 B.C.; the Moghuls in the 14th century, bringing the medicine of Galen and Avicenna.
The British closed down the Ayurvedic schools in 1833 but did not succeed in destroying the ancient learning completely.
Ayurvedic Medicine is practiced and highly sought after today for those who wish to take full control of their well being....the whole being.
