Ayurveda – ‘The science of life’, considered to be as ancient as human civilisation, has been serving mankind since time immemorial and still survives just because of its sheer therapeutic value. In the event of scientific findings which have proved that Ayurvedic medicines cure the disease by strengthening the body immune system, now considered to be the most scientific approach towards health, the relevancy of Ayurvedic remedies become more significant. It has also become very popular in the west due to major changes taking place in the consumer attitude towards health and natural products. Muniyal Ayurveda took its inspiration from Late Dr. U. Krishna Muniyal, who practiced Ayurveda for more than 40 years and was the disciple of Pandith Taranath, a great Ayurveda scholar who had treated Mahatma Gandhi several times. Pandith Taranath used to perform Parakãya Pravesha (one’s consciousness entering into another’s body) while treating the patient. Ancestors of the Muniyal family used to treat patients with all types of ailments successfully by using holy water enchanted with sacred and auspicious hymns.
