Medicinal uses of turmeric can be traced back to Sanskrit medical treatises and the ancient Ayurvedic and Unani systems of medicine. Ayurvedic medicine (“Ayurveda” for short) is one of the world's oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India and is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the body, mind and spirit.
