Ayurveda, the traditional medical knowledge, a divine gift to mankind is based on the law of nature that has helped humans to lead a happy, healthy and purposeful life from the time immemorial. Man is part and parcel of the universe, the self of a person is a continuum of the universal self. It also deals with the diet, daily routine (Dinacharya), and seasonal regimens (Ritucharya) that are helpful for health. Inspite of curing diseases from the root, it deals with prevention too. Unlike other sciences, ayurveda aims at eliminating the diseases from its source rather than curing the symptoms alone.
