“When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use and when diet is correct, medicine is of no need.”
In Ayurveda, food is medicine and medicine is food. Diet plays an important role in Ayurveda and finding balance. What we eat, how we eat and when we eat all must be considered. If food is medicine, the strength of that medicine depends on the strength of your digestion and the strength of your digestive Fire (Agni). The function of digestion is linked to many other functions of the body including the immune system, skin and hair health, balanced Doshas, mental function and overall well-being.
