The word Ayurveda has been derived from Sanskrit, "Ayu" means "life" and "Veda" means "science". Ayurveda is considered to be originator of all healing techniques as it predates all forms of healing systems. It was developed in India some 3000 years ago; and, is currently, the oldest practiced healing system in the world. The main textbook of Ayurveda, the Charaka Samhita , describes how in ancient times the Vedic Rishis (enlightened sages or "seers") became concerned that mankind was suffering from many illnesses. A meeting of the great sages was called to find a way to aid mankind and the knowledge of Ayurveda came out of this gathering. Although it may be an ancient and well-known healing system in the East, it is still relatively new in the West and is slowly finding its rightful place in western herbal science.


Ayurveda is the science of life and well-being. The oldest documented body of holistic medical knowledge, it is a system of plant oils and herbs originating in India over 6,000 years ago.Ayurveda was codified into a text called the Charaka Samhita by the legendary physician Charaka in the 2nd Century BC. The Charaka Samhita travelled with traders and scholars to China, Egypt, Arabia and Europe, influencing and laying the ground-work for plant-based healing all over the world.

After centuries of testing, Ayurvedic science has proven effective, allaying concerns about side effects. Ayurvedic treatments satisfy every aspect of a person's well being - physical, mental and spiritual. Ayurveda is the Knowledge of Life.Today, in the search for more complete healing and harmonious well-being, the holistic wisdom of Ayurveda is gaining international popularity as an alternative and a complement to modern allopathic medicine.
