    Anjum Anand explains how Ayurveda can help you to achieve optimum health. Ayurveda means science or knowledge of life and is thought to be over 5000 years old. It is said that Ayurveda influenced early health care around the world and many Eastern medical systems are thought to have their roots in Ayurveda.
