Ayurveda is considered by many to be the oldest healing system of medicine and health care in the world. It is known to be over 5,000 years old with origins in the Vedic culture of ancient India. Ayurveda literally means the "Science of Life". It has had a strong influence throughout history on many systems of medicine from traditional Chinese medicine to the ancient Greeks.
The primary focus of Ayurveda is creating a healthy balanced mind, body and spirit. It teaches prevention, rejuvenation and longevity through proper diet and lifestyle recommendations, detoxification regimes, herbal tonics, exercise, yoga, meditation and more. All of these are tailored specifically for each individual according to their own unique constitution.
