Ayurveda is an ancient system of healing that has been practiced in India for over 5,000 years. It is a holistic approach to health that was designed to help people live long and well-balanced lives. The word Ayurveda derives from Sanskrit terminology, with “ayus” meaning life and “veda” meaning knowledge. 

The basic principle of Ayurveda is to maintain balance in the body for optimal health and for disease prevention. Balance can be obtained in the body, mind and consciousness through a healthy lifestyle of eating and drinking and herbal remedies. Additionally, Ayurveda can be very beneficial when combined with other traditional practices such as yoga.
