Ayurveda has made up of two words. Ayur and Veda. These both are Sanskrit words. “Ayur” means life and “Veda” means science. So together AYUR + VEDA means - science of life. This science is related to the physical and mental both states of the body. It also deals with the existence of “Indriyaas” (the six senses). Basically Ayurveda deals with the proper functioning of our Mind, Body and Soul. This includes all the descriptions of lifestyle, diet and behavior. It includes the details of all the modalities, like what to eat, when to eat, how to eat etc.
