Around 600 BC a new system of medicine evolved in India. A system that in addition to treating an ailment, stressed on its prevention. A system that came to be called Ayurveda. Today, it's a unique, indispensable branch of medicine, a complete naturalistic system that depends on the diagnosis of the body's humors to achieve the right balance.
