Ayurveda translates as the “Science of Life”, it is holistic system of preventive healthcare that dates back to ancient times; it draws its information from the Vedas. Ayurveda is practiced primarily in India where even today many ayurvedic pharmacies exist and are doing good business. Ayurveda considers body, mind, and spirit in the treatment of an affliction. It relies chiefly on dietary restrictions and herbal medicines; other options include aromatherapy, massage, meditation, and even surgery. Ayurveda stresses a balance between the three humors – Vata (air), Pitta (fire), and Kapha (water).
