The term Ayurveda; literally translates to the “Science/ Wisdom of life”. It’s more than a mere system of treating illness, rather it offers a body of wisdom designed to people to stay vital while realizing their full human potential.

It includes universal inter-connectedness (among people, their health and the universe), the body’s constitution, and life forces. The difference between Ayurveda and modern medicine is that focuses on the root cause of the problem and treats the problem and the entire body as a whole unit whereas modern medicine focus on the treatment of symptoms only.
