Ayurveda means the science of life. It’s a very old indian healing system, which can cure as well as prevent disease. Ayurveda is not just treating symptoms, it sees the person as a whole being with body, mind and soul.
The origin of Ayurveda lies in the Vedas which are written about 5000 years ago.
The five elements of space, air, fire, water and earth are building the three doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. From these energies our bodies are built. The constitution is different in every individual. If one knows his bodytype he can choose food and lifestyle acording to it to stay balanced and healthy.
Ayurveda covers a big area which includes topics like diet, lifestyle, philosophy, daily routines and curing and preventing of diseases.

Ayurveda and Yoga are two old indian ways to live in harmony in body, mind and soul. Both ways put together can lead to a happy and healthy life.
