Ayurveda can be defined as a system, which uses the intrinsic principles of nature, to help maintain health in a person by keeping the individual's body, mind and spirit in perfect equilibrium with nature.

Ayurveda , "the knowledge for long life in Vedas"; or ayurvedic medicine is a Hindu system of traditional medicine native to India and a form of alternative medicine. Over the following centuries, ayurvedic practitioners developed a number of medicinal preparations and surgical procedures for the treatment of various ailments. Current practices derived (or reportedly derived) from Ayurvedic medicines are regarded as part of complementary and alternative medicine.
