Ayurveda is a medical system that has existed for over 5000 years. It is a holistic system that mixes herbal therapies, massage, etc., with diet and lifestyle recommendations in order to promote health.
There seems to be a proclivity to promote the dairy product, ghee in Ayurveda. I had to ask Ayurveda Practitioner, Naomi Boas the question, “Is Ayurveda Vegan?”
