Department of Ayurveda
The word Ayurveda is derived from the words “Ayur” meaning life and “Veda” which means science and knowledge. In both its literal sense and practical sense, Ayurveda is a science about life. One of the key aspects of Ayurveda is the longevity of life and in practice it is a procedure of alternate medicine which not only seeks to treat diseases but also to prevent ailments from occurring.
Ayurveda mainly bases its foundation on recognition of 3 “bodily energies” namely, Pitta, Vata and Kapha. The Ayurvedic medicine identifies that diseases are a result of these 3 energies being unbalanced and sets out to restore the balance. Ayurveda has a history spanning more than 5000 years and is rapidly gaining interest around the world as people look towards treatment methods which are without side effect.
Department of Ayurveda currently offers 4 courses, which are designed to give students pursuing their respective fields an extensive and profound understanding of the workings of Ayurveda.
