Ayurveda is a branch of alternative medicine. The term ‘Ayurveda’ stands for Science of life! It is a mode of treatment that is inspired by natural cure for ailments. This science actually originated in India. Its roots can be traced back to the Vedas!


Yoga is an age-old art or practice of staying fit mentally and physically by means of exercises as well as mind control practices such as controlled breathing, deep meditation etc. Yoga is a way of life, an art of righteous living or an integrated system for the benefit of the body, mind and inner spirit.


Unani (Unanipathy), one of the oldest medical systems in the world owes its origin to Greece. But later many Arab and Persian scholars enriched the system. The theoretical structure of Unani medicine is based on the teachings of Hippocrates who has based his theory on the four humors in the human body namely Blood, phlegm, yellow bile and black bile.


Siddha System of Medicine also known as Siddha Vaidya in India is the oldest among the Indian Medical Systems. It is about 10,000 years old. Siddha System of Medicine is considered to be of Dravidian origin and has all its literature in Tamil. The word 'Siddha' comes from 'Siddhi' which means an object to be attained or perfection of heavenly bliss.


Homeopathy is the alternative approach in the field of medicine where the treatment of the patient is taken care of by providing highly diluted substances. Homeopathy triggers the patient's natural system of healing the illness. The process is based upon specific symptoms that are shown in each patient differently, and the doctor matches it with that of the most appropriate medicine.
