Ayurveda, “The way of Life” is considered to be the eternal science that first existed in the universal consciousness (Brahma) before it was passed down from the creator to the ancient Indian myths through meditation. It is also considered to be the oldest healing science by many scholars. Often called the Mother of Healing, it originated in India more than 5000 years ago. Stemming from the ancient Vedic culture is taught for thousands of years in an oral tradition from accomplished masters to their disciples.

The sources of Ayurveda stretching profoundly into the antiquity, from 3300–1300 BCE; a Bronze Age Civilization prospered in Pakistan today. Most of the food and spices we cultivate today with Ayurvedic cuisine including rice, ginger, mung beans, turmeric and much more, were at the point being cultivated in the ancient period. The focal point of civilization moved to the Ganges Basin, where people who called themselves the Arya or the honorable ones in other words practiced a positive and invigorating spirituality embodied in the Vedas. In an ancient form of Sanskrit composed between 500- 1000 BCE, the Vedas celebrate five components of life, particularly fire, wind, and water, as well as Mother Earth and the plants and animals who abide upon her. Many herbs, which are yet unknown and still used in Ayurveda till today, were originally depicted in the Vedas.

A feeling of reason and awakening unfolded across the world as the Vedic or Gangetic civilization entered into the Iron Age at around 600 BCE, with Plato and Aristotle giving their teachings in Greece, the Hebrew prophets in the Middle East and the Buddha in Northern India.

In the mid to late 20th century, seekers from the West travelled to India in which the teachings of yoga and Ayurvedic treatments were rediscovered by a generation of disillusioned with the reductionism and materialism that had come to portray the Western thought, initiating an explosion of interest that continues to this day. By the mid-1980s, the lessons of Ayurveda were spreading throughout the United States by Dr. Vasant Lad, Dr. Robert Svoboda, and David Frawley.

The principles of many natural recuperating systems now familiar in the West have their underlying roots in Ayurveda, including Homeopathy and Polarity Therapy.

Ayurveda places extraordinary accentuation on prevention and empowers the upkeep of wellbeing through close consideration regarding balance in one's life, right thinking, diet, lifestyle and the use of herbs. Knowledge on Ayurveda empowers one to see how to make this parity of body, psyche and consciousness as indicated by one's own individual constitution and how to make lifestyle changes to achieve and maintain this balance. Weight Loss and Maintenance, Healthy and Glowing Skin and Hair, Stress Relief, Reduce Inflammation, cleanses the body, Lower Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, and Symptoms of Illness and Diseases are few of the primary benefits one can achieve with consistent use of Ayurveda.

Ayurveda is a precise combination of science and the art of living and popular for its extensive natural recuperating ways that work on illnesses and improving the general wellness of the human body and mind.
