Ayurveda and Wellness Sri Lanka
Ayurveda is an ancient authentic medical system which originated in India, more than 5000 years ago. In Sri Lanka, it is practiced in harmony with Sri Lankan Traditional Medicine, which evolved from the prehistoric eras and currently regarded as Sri Lanka Ayurveda, with a distinct identity, different from Indian Ayurveda.
The meaning of Ayurveda is derived from the two words (Ayuh) life and (Veda) science or knowledge; hence it is a science of living. Knowledge, research and new findings of Ayurveda have been passed down through time and services offered in the field have expanded with the aim of healing and preventing disease and offering rejuvenation through the connection between the body and the mind.
Ayurveda treats not the symptoms of a disease but its root causes. It helps people to strengthen the immune system by treating the body, mind, and spirit of a person as a whole entity. It works under the philosophy that mind and body are connected to each other and thus to cure any disease, both these aspects are taken as a whole. It concerns the unique healing practices accepted in Buddhist philosophy as well as in other religions.
In recent years, Sri Lanka has expanded its services in Ayurvedic treatments to offer beauty and de-stress treatments in addition to traditional disease cures. Sri Lanka now offers a refreshing array of spas, resorts, and hospitals that offer extensive services utilizing Ayurvedic natural herbal products.
