Ayurveda is a 5000 + years old system of health science that has its origin from Vedic culture of India. Ayur – Life Longevity and Veda - Science. More than treating an illness, Ayurveda concentrates more on promoting good health. As the traditional medicine of India Ayurveda reflects the profound spiritual culture of Vedic sciences that includes life habits, diet regimens, seasonal regimens, etc. Ayurveda describes that health is a balanced and dynamic correlation between our environment, body, mind and spirit.

Ayurveda deals with the disease from its root cause which helps to eradicate the disease from its source. Ayurvedic diagnosis includes NIDANAM (Identification of Root cause of the disease), POORVA ROOPAM (Pre-Monitory symptoms), ROOPAM (Symptoms) and SAMPRAPTHI (Prognosis).
Reason for the cause of disease has been explained as improper diet habits, sedentary lifestyle and mental instability. Due to above factors, Tridosha imbalance occurs which leads to accumulation of toxins in the body resulting in manifestation of disease.
Treatment principles of Ayurveda includes panchakarma therapies (Major 5 therapeutic procedures) – VAMANAM (vomiting therapy), VIRECHANAM (purgation therapy), VASTHI (enema therapy), NASYA ( Errhines ) and RAKTHA MOKSHANA (Bloodletting).
