Ayurveda, a system of traditional medicine native to the Indian sub-continent, is a form of alternative medicine. It is a Sanskrit term, made up of the wordsayus and veda. Ayus means life and Veda means knowledge or science. The term Ayurveda thus means ‘the science of life’. Ayurveda aims to integrate and balance the body, mind, and spirit; thus, some view it as “holistic.” This balance is believed to lead one to happiness and health, prolonged life span and to help prevent illnesses.
