Ayurvedic medicine


An ancient traditional medicine system based on Hindu philosophy and ancient Indian civilization. The human body is seen as a microcosm of the universe, consisting of the five elements of fire, water, earth, air, and ether. Each element corresponds to one of the five senses: sight, taste, smell, touch, and hearing. It embraces the concept of an energy force in the body similar to the Chinese concept of qi and emphasizes the balance of mind, body, and spirit to maintain health.
