Thus the diseases involving the mind are called Adhi and those of the body are called Vyadhi. . Ayurveda is a natural healthcare system that originated in India more than 5000 years ago. Its main objective is to achieve optimal health and well-being through a comprehensive approach that addresses mind, body, behavior and environment. Ayurveda emphasizes prevention and health promotion, and provides treatment for disease. A group of purification procedures known as Panchakarma removes toxins from the body.
