Ayurvedic medicine is practiced in India as a traditional medicine and in other parts of the world as a form of alternative medicine.  It involves the use of minerals, oils and vegetable-based drugs.  Hygiene, diet, exercise and meditation are also considered to be important.  Dhanvantari, one of the avatars of Krishna, is the god of Ayurvedic medicine.
