Ayurveda is a Sanskrit term, made up of the words “ayus” and “veda.” “Ayus” means life, and “Veda” means knowledge, or science. The term “ayurveda” thus means “the knowledge of life” or “the science of life.” According to the ancient Ayurvedic scholar Charaka, “ayu” comprises the mind, body, senses and the soul. 
It is perhaps the oldest comprehensive medical system which includes the entire events of life in its purview. The Life-style errors are the prime source of illness and hence the life-style management is the core source of health and wellness that was the central teaching of classical Ayurveda, now being accepted globally.
Swasthya is the state of equilibrium of Dosas, Agnis, Dhatus, Malas and body functions along with spiritual, sensorial and Mental Well-being, thus encompassing health and wellness in one sweep. Ayurveda defines Mental health as a state of quality wellbeing ie Prasannatmendriya manah with ability to maintain a positive continuum with the Nature ie Loka-Purusa Samya.
At Yogasamhita, the Ayurvedic teachings and treatments are offered by highly knowlegeable Consultant and Panchakarma Specialists.
