Ayurweda

The word Ayurweda derived from Ayu and Vedha. Ayu means life and vedha means science or knowledge. Though its commonly known as Ayurweda medicine our own indigenous medicine known as Hela wedakama. The earliest references to ayurweda in Srilanka is dates back to pre historic period for nearly about 5000 years. There was king in those days call king ravana, and there were four tribes in Srilanka- Yaksha, Raksha, Deva and Naga. So it is said the king ravana was a great physician and he taught the medicine to these four tribes.

According to ayurweda, illness comes because of imbalance of 3 basic elements.
