What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is a worlds oldest medical system and lifestyle concept. In Sanskrit  “Ayur” means ”Life” and ”Veda” means ”science”. In spiritual scriptures we can find ayurvedic texts more then 5000 years old. Ayurveda is a science of life and healthy well being. It’s not only cures the diseases but works on prevention, maintenance of physical, mental & social balance. The theory of Ayurveda same as yoga is based on 5 elements (Pancha Mahabhuta), 7 Tissues or (Saptu Dhatu). These theories defines body constitution  (dosha) and the way of therapeutic treatment (herbs, massages, diet, asana, pranayama, meditation, mantra). This course will help you to understand the basic of Ayurveda herbal  medicine and it’s application in daily life. Ayurveda works not only on physical but on energy body as well. As we know disease appears firstly in energy body then after that in physical body as well. By application of Ayurveda we can prevent development of diseases. 

Do not use Ayurvedic medicine to replace conventional care or to postpone seeing a health care provider about a medical problem. Ayurveda can be used and advised before, parallel or after allopatic medicine treatment.
