Ayurveda is the system of traditional medicine in India.
It is based on many centuries of experience in medical
practice, handed down through generations. Composed of
two Sanskrit words, "Ayu" or life, and "Veda" or
knowledge, Ayurveda is regarded as "The Science of Life"
and the practice involves the care of physical, mental
and spiritual health of human beings. Ayurveda is also
based on sound ecological awareness of the place of
animals, birds and plants in relation to human life. The
time honored, well tested ancient formulas of Ayurvedic
medicines use natural herbs, minerals and even gems, to
cure disease and to promote immunity and there are no
deadly experiments on animals in the lab.
