All you need to know about Ayurvedic diet and cooking along with easy-to-follow recipes backed by the timeless wisdom of Indian heritage to balance your Pitta Dosha...
India is well-known for its traditional medical systems, which include Ayurveda, Siddha, and Unani. Ayurveda, which derives from ancient Vedic scriptures, is a 5,000-year-old medical ideology and philosophy based on the idea that we are all made up of different types of energy. It is more than just a medicinal system; it is often regarded as a way of life.
Ayurveda contains some miraculous practices for body rejuvenation through diet and nutrition. It is a user-friendly and practical immersive system that helps the person to be self-sufficient and accountable for his/her health. It is a system of empowerment, prosperity, and long life.
According to Ayurveda, there are 3 elemental bodily doshas—Vata (space or air, equated with the nervous system), Pitta (fire, equated with enzymes), and Kapha (water, equated with the digestive system) (earth and water, equated with mucus). Psychology is governed by a parallel set of mental doshas such as Satogun, Rajogun, and Tamogun.
Each dosha has unique characteristics and roles within the body and mind; the natural predominance of one or more doshas describes a person's physical constitution (Prakriti) and personality. According to Ayurvedic practice, a significant etiologic aspect of the illness is a mismatch between the bodily and mental doshas.
Each has its own special strengths and weaknesses. To align these, the concepts of proper lifestyles, eating behaviors, and daily and seasonal routines practiced in Ayurveda can be implemented with appropriate modification.
Ayurveda emphasizes Ahara (diet) and Anna (food) as a means to a decent life, fitness, and well-being and asserts that proper nutrition nourishes the mind, body, and soul. The elimination of toxins from the system and the electrochemical enrichment of the body are the primary goals of Ayurvedic Cooking. It is thus both an art and a science when cooking becomes alchemy and food becomes Tantra.
