Ayurveda is a Sanskrit term that translates into “knowledge of life.” According to the National Ayurvedic Medical Association:

Ayurveda customizes preventative wellness to the unique constitution of every individual. In addition, ancient Ayurvedic doctors produced detailed descriptions of acute and chronic conditions (complete with causes, signs, and symptoms), and developed extensive holistic treatment protocols.
