Ayurveda is a traditional system of healing that has been practised in India for centuries. This system of medicine is widely practised in Kerala and its medical benefits have been recognized worldwide. Ayurveda which evolved in India around 600 B.C., is based on the theory that the body has three humors vatta, pitta and kapha, which need to be kept in balance for the body to remain in a state of health. Ayurveda treats not merely the symptoms of a condition or the condition itself, but the body as a whole. This holistic approach to health, stresses on the need for all toxins to be eliminated from the body to improve the overall health of the body.
