Ayurveda Diet and Nutrition
“You are what you eat”
This ancient branch of science believes that most common sicknesses are the result of poor nutrition. Any anomaly in the body is thought to originate in the digestive system, and therefore, it is believed that all diseases can be cured by following specific nutritional rules carefully, along with the proper herbal supplements. So much so, that Ayurvedic healers commonly begin a patient’s treatment by arranging his diet according to his disease or imbalances.
An Ayurvedic diet has all the necessary nutrients needed for a healthy body and mind. Carbohydrates, proteins and fats, along with vitamins and minerals are all present in sufficient amounts. Fresh, organic vegetables are rich in prana or life force, whereas inorganic, frozen or artificially grown foods are very low in prana. Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of eating fresh fruits and vegetables on a regular basis for optimum health.
At AyurYoga Eco-Ashram, you will not only be served organic foods grown in our campus’ very own vegetable garden, you will also be offered some of the finest and tastiest vegetarian fare you have ever experienced!
“When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use.
When diet is correct, medicine is of no need.”
