What is Ayurveda?
The word Ayurveda coming from Sanskrit compound ‘ayus + veda’ literally means ‘knowledge of life’ or 'science of life'.
Ayu can be translated as life and Veda means knowledge. Ayurveda is a system of medicine practiced in India for over 5000 years. Ayurveda provides both curative and preventive measures towards optimal physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Ayurvedic science believes that health is the result of living in harmony and balance and disease is the absence of that harmony. As such, cure is a journey from an imbalanced state to a balanced state.
So, what is that balanced state?
A lifestyle compatible with your prakrit or original nature brings harmony and absence of it brings vikrati or disharmony. This disharmony manifests itself as disease.
