Santo Domingo, Republica Dominicana (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
Ayurveda is the traditional medicine of India. It literally means in sanscrit "knowledge or wisdom of life." As a mind-body-spirit medicine, its scope enters into the realms of the spirit and the transformation of consciousness. Its fundamental philosophy is that disease is the end result of living out of harmony with our environment. In order to re-establish optimal health, one must discover where we are living out of harmony and then adopt a lifestyle which brings us back into perfect harmony and health.
