Ayurveda Tours will take you to Ayurvedic resorts in India where traditional herbal methods of healing that have been practiced in India for thousands of years are used to help rejuvenate you. The system of Ayurvedic healing involves a complete balance of the body and the mind, where meditation, massage, diet and gentle exercise such as yoga are used to cleanse and detoxify the body as well as reinvigorate it to face the stresses of the world.
Ayurveda is based on the principle that the Universe is made of five basic elements - the Panch Mahabootas, namely: Prithivi (earth), Apya (water), Teja (fire), Vayu (air) and Akash (space). Ayurveda also believes that the Tridoshas - Vata, Pitta and Kapha - in the human body should always be in equilibrium. The unbalanced state of these three elements results in a body suffering from a disease.
