Ayruveda is sanskrit, translated it means "knowledge of life."
It is a holistic medical system that is more then 5,000 years old created in India.
"Ayurveda encompasses a variety of preventive and curative methods. The emphasis is on proper nutrition and dietetics, purification and drainage procedures, massages and manual treatments as well as yoga and meditation. The effectiveness of many of these methods has been scientifically proven by Western standards and was recognized as “traditional medicine" by The World Health Organization (WHO) in 1976."
