Ayurveda is a holistic, ancient, time tested and traditional system of medicine that is indigeous to and widely practiced in India. The word ayurveda is a Sanskrit term meaning "science of life". Ayu means "life" or "daily living" and veda means "knowing". Ayurveda was first recorded in the Vedas – the ancient texts of the Himalayan sages.

The ayurvedic healing system has been practiced in daily life in India for more than 5000 years. All ayurveda literatures are based on the Samkhya philosophy of creation. (The root of term Samkhya: sat means "true" and khya means "to know"). The Vedas, made up of the Rig, Yajur, Sama and Atharva Vedas in which the ancient scriptural knowledge is found, have been handed down to us generation by generation over several thousand years of oral tradition, before finally being recorded in written form. It was not until about 500 B.C. that the sage Adi Sankara culled the end portion of vedas, called vedanta, which reveals the knowledge that the self and the supreme being are one. Sankara recorded this knowledge on palm leaves. Rig veda, the foundation pillar and oldest of the vedas, contains many references to ayurvedic principles, although ayurveda itself was primarily developed from the Atherva Veda, the most recent of the Vedas. The mainstay of ayurvedic knowledge we have today is found in two treatise, Charak Samhita and Sushrut Samhita, each of which first appeared at the turn of the first millenium B.C.

The main objective of ayurveda is to impart health-full longevity and to relieve human suffering. This is achieved through appropriate regimes of Ahara, Vihara, and Ausadhis and systemic Samshodhana {detoxification} of the body.
