A medical system is a social institution of the cultural framework of any society. As such, it offers a platform to answer questions about life and death, nature and culture, science and philosophy, including body, mind, psyche or soul, disease and health, the soma, the self and the social being conducive to giving and maintaining health. In Ayurvedic medicine, the categories of health and disease are two aspects of the same interrelation: the maintenance of balance and harmony between the environment, the body, the mind and the soul. Health has been defined as the continuous struggle to preserve the state of balance and integrity, reflected in a high degree of consciousness.
