Enjoy this delicious Ayurveda Lentil Soup Recipe and Anti-Inflammatory Turmeric Lemonade. Ayurveda (eye-yer-vay-duh) is a leading alternative medicine and the art of natural healthy living. “Ayur” (life) “Veda” (knowledge) is commonly described as the science of health, awareness, and self-realization.
Known as a complete wellness system, Ayurveda is a nature-based personalized approach to health, and understanding of your unique mind-body type. Ayurveda focuses on prevention of disease & the preservation of health by establishing harmony & balance through diet/nutrition, yoga/exercise, meditation, natural therapies & a daily routine to help achieve and maintain a healthy balanced lifestyle.

Ayurveda uses remedies that are all-natural and treat the root cause of the disease, rather than just the symptoms
