Ayurveda is the mother of all healing arts and is also a philosophy of the art of life. Its essence is the conscious human striving for full balance at the level of body, spirit and mind. Ayurveda teaches us how to live with this natural balance. It helps us understand ourselves as well as the environment in which we live.
Eastern medicine, including Indian medicine, unlike Western medicine, treats man holistically and concerns every aspect of human life, focusing on preventing the disease, and when it comes to removing its source, not its symptoms, and maintaining balance at every level of existence.
