ayurveda

/ayur·ve·da/ (i″yur´ved-ah) (i″yur-va´dah) [Sanskrit] a classical system of medicine founded 5000 years ago and currently practiced in India. Its emphasis is on balance with the environment and interpersonal communication and is based on the principles that humans are microcosmic representations of the entire universe and that health is the natural end of living in harmony with the environment. Disease results from disharmony between the person and the environment, and each case of disease is a manifestation of a unique state in a unique individual, therefore requiring a unique cure. The practitioner attempts to maintain or restore the balance of the doshas, with therapies including diet; herbal, color, and sound therapies; aromatherapy; application of medicated oils to the skin and massage; and meditation. Written also Ayurveda. ayurve´dic

Al Baidh, who is exiled in Germany, has been calling for the south to secede from the north and end a unity deal in place since May 22, 1990.
Al Baidh was the second most powerful man after Saleh in unified Yemen until 1994 when he left for Oman after he failed to secede from the north through forceful means.
Baidh was quoted as saying Wednesday that the unification of north and south Yemen had failed, and accused the government of using violence he said was provoking separatists.
Asked if the southern secessionists could become an armed movement, Baidh said: "If this regime continues to act against us using all means of violence, then I think the peaceful movement may have another option .
Baidh accused veteran ruler Saleh, who came out on top in a brief civil war with the south under Baidh in 1994, of maintaining links to al Qaeda figures in Yemen in an attempt to wring support out of Gulf Arab governments who fear the group.
Referred to as the "day of southern anger" by former Vice President Ali Salim Baidh, the protestors demanded an end to the military campaign in the province of Lahj, and clashes between the demonstrators and military resulted in several deaths, AN NAHAR reported.
