Garbhaveśman (गर्भवेश्मन्) refers to an “inside room”, which is mentioned in verse 3.16 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] In (a man) living in an inside [viz., garbhaveśman] or basement room heated by charcoal heat there never arises a disease caused by cold and roughness (of wind). [...]”.
Note: Garbha-bhū-veśman, which must be interpreted to mean “garbhaveśmani tathāvidhe bhūveśmani vā”—“in an inside room or, likewise, in a basement room” (Indu’s explanation), has been represented by sa-khaṅ khaṅ-pa ñis-rim byas. While sa-khaṅ is a metaphrase of bhūveśman (“basement”, Hindi taikhānā), khaṅ-pa ñis-rim byas is incongruous with garbhaveśman (“inside room”); it denotes, to use the Tibetan wording, “the room built in the second place”, that is, the ground floor.
Āyurveda (आयुर्वेद, ayurveda) is a branch of Indian science dealing with medicine, herbalism, taxology, anatomy, surgery, alchemy and related topics. Traditional practice of Āyurveda in ancient India dates back to at least the first millenium BC. Literature is commonly written in Sanskrit using various poetic metres.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
