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.

What People Say



"Ayurvedic Nutrition opens up the world of Ayurveda and its invaluable wisdom to everyone - from novices to those who have been practicing for some time." Dr. Deepak Chopra

"I wish, Vaidya Atreya will publish many more books on Āyurveda in future."Prof. K.C. Chunekar, Varanasi, India

"I am inspired by your highly practical approach and your efforts to bring Vedic concepts to the west in its totality, without diluting it. I am amazed by your ability to express Ayurveda in the most holistic way." Dr. Vijay Srinivasamurthy, Head Of Faculty, Wellpark College, NZ

"Atreya turns his subject into a light, delectable confection, into an info soufflé that goes down easy, digests agreeably, and leaves its consumers well-fed but hungry for more. Read his words, and try them out in your own life." from the foreword, Dr. Robert E. Svoboda

"Vaidya Atreya Smith is known to me as one of the few authentic western experts in the field of Ayurveda. He has proven himself to be an excellent teacher, with in-depth knowledge as well as organisational skills, which eventually led to his successful European Ayurvedic school several years ago - a school which has been expanding since and has created a respectable niche in what is available in the Ayurvedic field in Europe. His presentation of Ayurvedic material, in his books as well as his teaching material, forms a valuable contribution to the study of Ayurveda as it presents a modern and applied view on Ayurveda without losing any of the original classical principles and roots of this science." Coen van der Kroon, MA, director of Academy of Ayurvedic Studies, NL

"Atreya presents the wonderful system of Ayurvedic nutrition with remarkable clarity, simplicity, and finesse, and makes its wisdom accessible to everyone in daily life." David Frawley

Mary Robson

"It has been an incredible journey of discovery where everything fits like a jigsaw and the big picture makes so much sense. Thank you Atreya for bringing Ayurveda into my life, and for being such a good teacher. Thank you Denise for making it possible."
Rosanna Castaldi

"......Atreyas own work and commitment to education brings Ayurveda into the modern western world with ease. I am inspired by his knowledge and encouraged by his true belief that Ayurveda is the modern worlds way forward. Because he has broken down the text, he has helped me enormously to really fall in love with Ayurveda with all its complexities and simplicities. Atreya Thank you, and Denise, for all you do, Thank you."
Marie Wilmot, Ireland
