Disease and health are both the result of the interaction of all three aspects: Body, Mind and Spirit. And whatever we can do for our health ourselves is better than what others can.
Ayurveda is a leading alternative medicine and probably the most holistic medicine system existing. It translates to “Science of Life” and with its 5 000 years of history Ayurveda is also the oldest known healing science — preserved until today in India, where it stems from. It was established by the same great Vedic seers and sages that invented Yoga and Meditation. Originally there were four main ancient books serving as the fundament for Ayurveda: the so called Vedas which used to be secret knowledge of the Brahmans and were to be known by heart and passed on verbally. The Vedas are covering topics from health over surgery to ethical living. And while all of those books still form the basis of today’s ayurvedic knowledge, it is said that Ayurveda itself eventually evolved from the fourth book, the Atharva-Veda, which discusses spirituality as healing aspect.
