Ayurvedic nutrition

Health on a plate

Ayurvedic nutrition is not a particular type of diet like vegetarianism, veganism or paleo, but a common name for a number of guidelines on how to properly prepare and combine various foods in a way that is beneficial to health. As such, it plays a prominent role in Ayurvedic medicine.

Ayurveda propagates vegetarian cuisine, although animal products can be proscribed for therapeutic purposes.

When diet is wrong medicine is of no use.
When diet is correct medicine is of no need.
— Charaka Samhita

Just like Ayurvedic therapies, Ayurvedic nutrition is also personalized – it modifies according to individual physiology and cyclical changes in nature.

Ayurveda Balance educates its users on appropriate diet during the pulse diagnosis, when they are given dietary guidelines for following 1-3 months, as well as during the Panchakarma process, when users receive instructions for preparing simple, delicious vegetarian dishes that fit their physiology.

Ayurveda Balance also regularly organizes Ayurvedic nutrition workshops.
