Ahara – Dietary Guidelines
An Ayurvedic proverb is “When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use; when diet is correct, medicine is of no need”. Food therapy in Ayurveda includes specific dietary recommendations made by an Ayurvedic expert during a consultation session, which better enables a person to live in accordance to one’s intended doshic constitution, as well as Ayurvedic cooking classes, held periodically at Sevayu. In Sanskrit, this is called Dravyubhut Chikitsa. Dietary recommendations will take into account the person’s body type, present health conditions, seasonal factors and other factors.
