Ayurveda is the knowledge that indicates the appropriate and inappropriate, happy and sorrowful conditions of living, what is auspicious or inauspicious for longevity as well as the measure of life itself. (Charaka Samhita) ‘Ayurveda,’ literally means the science of life or the science of longevity, which promotes positive health, prevents diseases, and helps achieving long life .It is a form of alternative medicine based on the principles that disease is caused by an imbalance of the life forces or the humors (viz. vatha, pitta and kapha). It is believed to be the oldest and the most complete system of medicine on earth, dating back over 5000 years, and is the part of the great Vedic Tradition. Even though ayurvedic medicine is originated in the East, it is perfectly suited for our Western society where fast paced lifestyles have seen an increase in stress related conditions which conventional medicine has been unable to remedy. Ayurveda being a complete system of healing, it offers physical treatments and detoxification programs as well as counseling for harmonious living and good relationships in addition to herbal medication. It is truly holistic and highly individualized in approach. However, it is not only the system of medicine in the conventional sense of curing the disease but also a way of life that teaches us how to maintain and protect our health .It describes the diet ,medicines and behavior that are beneficial and harmful to life. The aim of Ayurvedic medicine is to integrate and balance the body, mind, and spirit. In Ayurvedic philosophy people, their health, and the universe are all thought to be related. It is believed that health problems can result when these relationships are out of balance. Ayurveda is not just about treating the patient, but about healing the patient through a holistic way balancing the humors and neutralizing the disease process.
