Ayurveda is a system of medicine with natural remedies which is
conducive to health. Ayurveda evolved into a complete health-care
system over many millenia. Although modern medicine has put this
science in the shade, temporarily, the failure of modern medicine
to counter ailments without side effects has again brought this
science into the limelight. For thousands of years Ayurveda
remained as a science in antiquity, and is gaining wide acceptance
and popularity today.
