DEFINITION:
A compound of Sanskrit words meaning “knowledge of life,” it is a word used to describe the complex ancient healing systems of India. Techniques used include breathwork, massage, needling, herbs, surgery (until banned in 250 B.C.E.), nutrition, and the use of certain minerals.

The techniques listed help to restore appropriate balance.
