Ayurveda is the science of life, revered in India from the time of the ancients. Entirely operative on self-heal potentials and naturopathic elixirs, Ayurveda is as different in approach as it could be from the invasive, side-effects ridden ways of modern medicine. Though many medical doctors today prescribe following Ayurvedic remedy in addition to the allopathic cure in beating chronic diseases like diabetes, Ayurveda can be trusted for success without any other supplementation too. However, you need to have a well-rounded knowledge of the diagnosis based upon dosha, nutriments and food habits suitable for different dosha algorithms and the holistic philosophy of health which is the premise of Yoga and Ayurveda.
