The ancient Sanskrit text stating how to prolong life and promote health by eliminating the cause of disease than mere treating it, is what forms the basis of Ayurveda. Ayurveda uses the divine knowledge of sages gathered by relentless exploration of nature and human body. The result is a medicinal system which is safe and sure. Ayurveda uses only botanical extracts and organic derivatives to keep the essentials of body in balance. Besides suggesting what and how to take in case of an ailment, it also advises on a lifestyle to prevent an ailment and sustain a cure. It is a complete philosophy for wellbeing for mind, body and soul.
