Like otherancient civilizations, India too has a traditional system of healing that places much emphasis on nature and its bounty of benefits for us. Ayurveda, or the traditional knowledge of healing finds its roots in ancient Indian texts that describes the essence of knowledge being passed down from the idea of universal consciousness (Brahma) to the sages who then compiled them.
