Ayurvedic diet : an individual approach

Ayurveda has always had an individualized approach to nutrition. Fine out how you structure your diet to fit your constitution. One of the fundamental ideas in Ayurveda is that your body is intelligent and seeks health if you support it through good habits. Additionally, health is defined as a dynamic state – not just the absence of disease as in modern medicine. The idea in Ayurvedic nutrition is that health can be increased not just maintained through right lifestyle and diet. Thus, an Ayurvedic diet is an individualized approach that brings a dynamic state of being.

Doctor / Vaidya

A person who applies advanced therapeutic treatments with knowledge of disease diagnosis, pathology and Ayurvedic anatomy, and who can treat agni, doshas, dhatus and srotas through internal and external means as per dosha and sub-dosha and through an advanced knowledge of diet and lifestyle. This person has an advanced knowledge of purification therapies and can develop protocols that can be applied by either of the preceding two categories. This person has an advanced level of Dravyaguna and can also specialize in any of the eight branches of Ayurveda, treatment or pharmacology.

Conclusion

While some people do not except the above definitions due to private agendas they have been approved by a number of educators and university professors in India and Europe. The above definitions follow the guidelines indicated in Caraka Samhita with the additional of the middle level of “practitioner / therapist” which is a result of our modern medicine avoiding the reality that people need to be addressed at a human level for more than 10 or 15 minutes.
