AYURVEDA & NUTRITION
Find well-being of your body, mind and soul by observing
consciously a healthy alimentation
Does it not sound paradoxical that a rather poor country such as
India, whose inhabitants are partly still suffering from under
nourishment, does offer to the western countries one of the most
elaborate and fulfilling science of healthy nourishment.
And it is more than paradoxical that a lot of people belonging
to our civilization are daily overeating themselves.
Unfortunately it is true that in our hemisphere only a
negligible amount of people are eating “properly” and in a sane
manner; the masses are overeating, or dieting in a desperate
way, or eating too fast, or at the wrong times and the people
just don’t take care of the effective needs of the body system.
Next to the malnutrition there are also various aspects which
have to be controlled, like the daily habits, the life conduct,
the joy of life, the manner of living according to the Ayurveda
constitution. e.g. corresponding with the doshas.
According to the science of Ayurveda all the victuals have very
specific qualities, which can help or hurt the personal dosha.
An example of the interpretation of the Ayurveda science of
nutrition can be found in the following quotation:
The balance of the three doshas is directed by the personal way
of nutrition. The taste of each nutriment (sweet, sour, salty,
hot, bitter or constricting) has to be defined properly and it
is important to know whether it is a heavy or light nutrient,
whether is brings heat or cold to the stomach. Food stuff which
is too oily or too dry, too liquid or too consistent can cause a
lot of disturbance and can be a real poison for certain doshas.
It is absolutely important that the changes of the season are
taken into consideration, as well as the professional habits and
the life style altogether.
In the science of Ayurveda the major part of the nutriment helps
to preserve and restore your health. This is the reason why
“food” plays also a very important part during a holistic cure.
