As defined by World Health Organization (WHO), "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." It is a resource for everyday life, not the objective of living. Health is a positive concept emphasizing social and personal resources, as well as physical capacities. A healthy society is a gathering of individuals and families living in different level. Air (Oxygen), food, water, clothes, habits, hygiene, exercise, shelter, rest, and different other entities influences health.
The purpose of Ayurveda is to protect the health of the healthy and to alleviate disorders of the diseased. Ayurveda has two different aspects viz., the Preventive aspect and the Curative aspect.
• The Preventive aspect deals with methods, recommendations, and ways of life, which if adopted and followed religiously from the beginning, can boost the strength and resistance of human beings physically, mentally, and emotionally in such a way that they can protect themselves from diseases.
• The Curative aspect deals with providing relief to the diseased. Ayurveda recommends the use of several herbs, massages, and therapies etc., and even recommends subtle alterations to dietary habits and lifestyle, for an affected individual to get back his/her state of good health.
