What is ayurveda?


Ayurveda literally means knowledge of life. In Sanskrit - the classic language of India - Ayur means life and veda means knowledge. Applying this knowledge to everyday life helps you to stay (or become) healthy and in harmony with yourself, other people and the universe. Basically Ayurveda is ancient (over 5000 years old) wisdom originating from India about how to live your life in a healthy and happy way. Energy, balance and harmony play a central part in the ayurvedic philosophy. Ayurveda has many similarities with traditional Chinese medicine.
