Ayurveda is the ancient science of India. It is a perfect science of life,
which explains the knowledge of balancing the human body, mind and Soul,
emphasizing that Prevention Is Better Than Cure. Believed to be originated
from Lord Brahma, Ayurveda is a Branch of Atharva Veda-which is one among
the four Vedas or treatises that forms the basis of Indian philosophy, the
others being Rig Veda, Yajur Veda and Sama Veda.
The human body is made up of five basic eternal elements or Pancha
mahabhootas (Air, ether, fire, water, earth). In Human body these combine
together to form three subtle energies or forces that control and govern all
the biological, physiological and physio- pathological functions of the
body, mind and consciousness. They act as basic constituents and protective
barriers for the body in its normal physiological conditions. The
representation of solar energy in a living being which is responsible for
metabolic activities is called agni.
