One of India's ancient systems of medicine is Ayurveda. The fundamental principal of Ayurvedic medicine is to keep your body, mind, and environment in balance and harmony in order to prevent and treat sickness rather than to treat symptoms of disease. In order to treat the disease's underlying cause and restore balance, Ayurveda uses natural ingredients. For a very long period, herbal medicines were used for a variety of therapeutic goals in ancient Chinese, Greek, Egyptian, and Indian medicine. According to the World Health Organization, 80% of the world's population still primarily relies on traditional medicines for their medical care. With around 45,000 plant species, the Indian subcontinent is renowned for being one of the key hubs for biodiversity.
