Ayurved, a 5000 years old Indian system of well being, meaning the Science of Life,
is perhaps the oldest continuously used health maintenance system in
the world. Ayurved places great emphasis on prevention and encourages
maintaining health by paying attention to balance one's life through
thought, diet and lifestyle. It enables one to understand how to create
balance of body, mind and consciousness according to one's own
individual constitution and how to make lifestyle changes to bring about
and maintain this balance.
According to the ancient books of
knowledge, health is considered as a prerequisite for achieving the
supreme ends of life consisting of righteousness, wealth, artistic
values and spiritual freedom. Preventive and curative aspects of
diseases are considered as important components of the concept of
positive health. Ayurved deals elaborately with measures of healthful
living during the entire span of life and its various phases. Besides
dealing with principles for maintenance of health, it has also developed
a wide range of therapeutic measures to combat illness. These
principles of positive health and therapeutic measures related to
physical, mental, social and spiritual welfare of human beings. Thus

the preventive and curative aspects of life in a most comprehensive way.

a B.A.M.S., always supported me throughout my career.
