The Ancient Science of Ayurveda
The Ancient Science of Ayurveda has been used for more than 5000 years and still does its proof today all around the world. Ayurveda is an alternative and also a complement to modern medicine. It examines the causes and searches to cure the roots of diseases. According to Ayurveda, we are "born from food" and most diseases come from incompatible food and improper lifestyle. Ayurveda shows you the natural way of longevity to keep your life strong and healthy on a daily base. So I believe we need to start taking more care of our bodies and minds in this modern age and have a deeper view of ourselves in the world we live in.
