Ayurveda is no longer just for the older generation, this ancient medical science is already winning hearts across the globe, that too in the most amazing ways. Did you know there is even a European Academy of Ayurveda in Germany? It’s about time we make Indians fall in love with Ayurveda, again. Not just because it is one of India’s most precious heritage, but because it is a treasure trove of health benefits that perfectly fit our modern, fast-paced lifestyles.
