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. But the rest of the world took Ayurveda seriously only a few decades ago. 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.
