Ayurveda Diet

It is good to know some of the important Ayurveda Diet Guidelines on healthy eating. Blood pressure rises due to several factors including wrong diet and unhealthy lifestyle. According to Ayurveda some foods are good at certain times of the day and not for another. Some foods are excellent for health during one season and might be cause for disease if taken during another season. Some foods are good by themselves and become toxic when taken with a wrong combination. There are cold weather foods and hot weather foods. This is a whole science by itself.

Ayurveda The Healing Science

Ayurveda is a healing science which evolved in India about 5000 years ago. It is based on balancing the 5 elements in nature (air, fire, earth, water, ether). It also includes cooking and eating with all the 6 tastes(sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent and astringent).Balancing the elements is key to maintaining health and successfully healing any illness. The first Ayurveda text is the Charaka Samhita which gives us information about the making of herbal medicines but also of the use of herbs for healing.
