an Ayurvedic Centre are related to either treating the existing diseases or
adding life to the ailing body which needs to be restored to youth. Ayurveda
is a place where the never ending stress, harsh and blasting pollution of
todays on - the - run life cease to exist.

China, Russia and Japan, Ayurveda is a Science which is being practised
since ages. Ayurved as a Holistic Health Care System is estimated to be 2500

Method of Ayurveda
Lord Dhanvantari is the God of Ayurveda. Ayurveda flourished during the
time of Buddha. In this time Ayurvedic Practitioners usually used Mercuric -
Sulphur combination based medicines.
After emerging victorious at the Kalinga War, Emperor Ashoka influence by
Teachings banned any
bloodshedding. Therefore many of the Ayurvedic Practitioners who were using
surgery for the practice of Ayurveda, left surgery and took to herbs for
treating various ailments. Thus came a new form of Ayurveda which is being
used even to this date. During the regime of Chandragupta Maurya, Ayurveda
was part of the mainstream Indian Medical Practices.
Todays Ayurveda works on the Concept of Tridosha - Vata, Kapha and Pitta.
Vata is the impulse energy necessary for the function of nervous system.
Kaphat is the body fluid system related to ease out the release of
lubrication and carrier of nutrients into the artireal system. And Pitta is
the energy principle which uses bile to direct digestion and works for the
better function of metabolism of the body.
Ayurveda works on achieving the equilibrium of the body; this as per the
practice can be achieved by the proper balance between Vitta, Kapha and
Some of the famous Ayurvedic Practices are Weight Loss, Stress Relief and
Rejuvenation, Achenes and Pain Relief, Hair and Skin Treatment.
