Ayurveda is an ancient system of health care used by millions of people in India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. The word ‘AYUR’ means life and ‘VEDA’, the science or knowledge. Thus, “Ayurveda” roughly translates to the ‘knowledge of life’. Ayurveda is concerned with healthy living along with therapeutic measures that relate to physical, mental, social and spiritual harmony.
