What is Ayurveda?
The Ayurveda is the most ancient system of Indian medicine.

The Ayurveda studies the physical and psychic behaviour of people and prescribes ways for them to synchronize with their environment so as to live happy, healthy and inspired lives.

Much emphasis in Ayurveda is given to diet, following the cycles of the seasons, getting up before dawn, massage and other useful practices for enriching life. Information dealing with diseases, their diagnosis and cures also exists within Ayurveda.

The term Ayurveda comes from the Sanskrit terms "Ayu" meaning "life" and "Veda" meaning "knowledge". The literal translation of "Ayurveda" is "knowledge of life" or "right living". This Ayurveda knowledge is grounded in the Vedic scriptures, which date back to 3000 B.C. It was also strongly influenced by the Tantric traditions.
