Ayurveda is the Indian school of medical science. This system, one of the
oldest, takes the wider term of health. It's medicines are prepared from
natural herbs which makes them almost free from side-effects. When it
becomes necessary to enhance the potency of allopathy medicines
again-and-again, time-tested Ayurvedic medicines still work well as before.

Ayurvedic therapies and herbal cosmetics etc. are now a fad throughout the
world. It's but natural that Ayurveda is on the top of itinerary of any
tourist visiting India. There are many world-class Ayurveda centres where
you can get your body purified and rejuvenated. This completely naturalistic
system depends upon the diagnosis of your body's humours - vata, pitta and
kapha - to achieve the proper balance. Friendly weather, natural abundance
of herbs and medicinal plants and the cool monsoon season (June - November)
are best suited for Ayurveda's curative and restorative packages.
