When diet is wrong medicine is of no use. When diet is correct medicine is of no need.
Ayurveda means “the science of life” and is based upon India’s timeless scriptures, known collectively as the Vedas. The body of ayurvedic knowledge is estimated to have been handed down from generation to generation estimated for several millennia before attaining its written form as the Charaka Samhita that appeared around the first century A.D. Ayurveda provides a complete system of balancing the body, mind and spirit, nurturing human life and supporting life’s spiritual goal and ultimate purpose, Self-Realization.
