The term "AYURVEDA" derives from Sanskrit, from the words Ayur, that is, duration of life or longevity, and Veda, that is knowledge: it is therefore a question of "knowledge of life, or science of living", but not only, because Ayurveda it is a very large and complex medical system, including aspects of prevention, as well as care, which allow, if strictly applied, to live longer, improve one's health and respect one's body. 

Ayurveda is in fact concerned with the well-being of people from all points of view, therefore in their physical, mental and spiritual aspect: the purpose is to help sick people to heal them-selves, and healthy people to maintain their well-being, preventing the diseases.
