This ancient system of holistic healing originated in India. The name is derived from the Sanskrit words ayur (life) andveda (knowledge). In Ayurveda the main aim is to balance the physical, spiritual and psychological areas – as it is considered that when a person is out of balance illness can result. Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space are the five elements comprising the body in Ayurveda and the body, mind, and spirit/consciousness need to be addressed both individually and in unison for health to ensue.
