This is a guide to the Ayurveda system of health care. This system is based on an ancient philosophy that spread from the Ancient Greeks and Romans to modern India, China and the Arab world. Ayurveda teaches how to use the body's natural healing processes rather than relying on medications. It emphasizes healthier daily nutrition habits and prevention techniques for each of the three basic physical types, as well as personal diagnosis and treatment of many conditions. Specific treatments are given for a variety of illnesses, along with suggestions for daily living, including nutrition, relief of stress, and detoxifiers of environmental pollutants.
