Care and Cure
Prevention is better than cure. Proper care, well in advance, will prevent unnecessary health problems. Unfortunately, prevention, which largely involves proper family atmosphere and social conditions, does not accrue much financial benefit to big manufacturers, multinational companies and specialists and they are not taking any positive result oriented step.

Human beings are using herbs, plants and trees for getting relief of various ailments, dates back to the very earliest periods of human history. These practices had gradually developed into a system of Ayurveda, India's Vedic Medical System. The advantage of herbal medicines compare to allopathic medicine is that there are no side effects instead these drugs produce side benefits to our body.

The word 'Ayurveda' comes from the word 'ayur' meaning 'life' and the word 'veda' meaning 'to know'. Ayurveda means 'the science of life',and deals with each and every aspect of our life. According to the ancient physician - sage Charaka, life is a unified state of body, the cognitive organs, the mind and soul.

This system of medicine practiced in India and was stressed on the prevention of disease, maintenance of health, in addition to treating an ailment and still it followed closely across the entire country and worldwide.

Ancient Vedic texts indicate the system is the oldest being practiced prior to 4000 B.C. and some believe it is even 8000 years old. Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) are very similar being based on universal natural bi-polar concepts that matter and energy are one. Ayurveda largely encompasses spiritual philosophies and is a practice of mind, body and spirit. It is about being in-tune with your body and living naturally in natural.

Today, it's a unique, indispensable branch of medicine, a complete naturalistic system that depends on the diagnosis of the body's humours to achieve the right balance. The Primary position given to ‘humour’ equilibrium indicates its importance in maintaining health. (humour means – Dosas or Dosha-one of the certain liquids (toxic materials) in the body, said to determine a person’s physical qualities) There are 3dosas viz. vayu, pitta and kapha. Vayu (Vatham= Air) regulates all the nervous functions including motions and sensations in the body. Pitta (Fire) regulates all the enzymatic functions including digestion and metabolism. Kapha (Water) serves as a matrix to lubricate and hold together different organs of the body. Any dis equilibrium is considered to lead to disease.

Ayurveda believes in the treatment of not just the affected part, but also the individual as a whole, making it the natural way to perfect health and harmony of life.
