Ayurveda treatment begins with an internal purification process, followed by a special diet, herbal remedies, massage therapy, yoga and meditation.

It is also known as Ayurvedic medicine, which is the traditional system of Indian medicine. Ayurvedic medicine is an example of a well-organized system of traditional health care, both preventive and curative, that is widely practiced in parts of Asia. There is a long tradition of Ayurveda behind it. Today it remains a preferred form of health care in large parts of the world, especially in India, where a large percentage of the population uses the system exclusively or in conjunction with modern medicine.
