Ayurveda, the traditional health science of India, evolved around 600 BC in India. This system of medicine stressed on the prevention of body ailments in addition to curing them. Today Ayurveda is a unique, indispensible branch of medicine - a complete natural healing system that depends on the diagnosis of the body's humours - vata, pitta and kapha - to achieve the right balance.
