Ayurveda comes from two Sanskrit work 'ayu' meaning age and 'veda' meaning knowledge of. Ayurveda is an ancient practice of healthy food habits along with knowledge of treating ailments with natural medicines made from the herbs. As per the olden traditions, food is the greatest priority because what we eat is what we are. Our physical body is made of the food we have eaten because whatever we have eaten has a great impact on our system. Ayurveda teaches how to eat, what to eat, and when to eat. The way we eat decides our thought process, our strength, and our weakness. We must consciously strive to pump our body with the right fuel so that the functioning of the machinery is smooth and gives good mileage.
