About Ayurveda > What is Ayurveda
‘The science of life’ is the etymological Sanskrit meaning of Ayurveda‚ the ancient and proven natural and holistic healing system of medicine, practised in India for more than 6000 years.

Ayur means “longevity” or “life” and veda means “science”. Despite being an ancient system of medicine‚ Ayurveda is as much relevant and essential now as ever before as it banks on bestowing us with the knowledge and awareness of disease prevention and elimination of its root cause rather than disease management.

In the ancient times, the knowledge of Ayurveda was carried forward orally through a lineage of sages. Finally, around 5000 years ago, the knowledge of Ayurveda was collated and put together in texts such as Charaka Samhita, Sushruta Samhita, and the Ashtanga Hrudaya.
