Ayurvedaa what is it?
Sri Ayurveda – “The science of Life”
The name comes from ancient Sanskrit; Ayuh or “life” and Veda or “science”. Thus Ayurveda translates as “The Science of Life”, a fitting name for a system that devotes itself to a truly holistic approach to the ways the body and the mind can be treated.
Sri Lanka had always been in a place that refreshes not just mind and body, but also the soul and the sprit. For thousands of years the most popular method used to restore and rejuvenate tired bodies and weary souls has been Ayurveda – arguably the oldest and the most holistic, medical system available in the world. Based on indigenous Indian medicine, it draws not only a deep understanding of physiology, but also element of philosophy, psychology and spirituality as well. The influenced of traditional Tibetan Chinese medicine has further enriched Ayurvedha and historians believe that ancient Greek medical practitioners embraced many of the concepts introduced by Ayurveda.
