    Thank you for the post. The information shared here is wonderful.
    Ayurveda and Yoga y have been practiced for thousands of years in Kerala for the healing of body, mind, and consciousness. However, while Ayurveda deals more with the health of the body, yoga deals with purifying the mind and consciousness, but in actual practice, they complement one other.
