The diet plays a very critical role in wellness and affects a person’s health in many ways. People in ancient times had a healthy dietary pattern that has come down from generation to generation. It satisfied their tastes and the nutritional needs too.  Ayurveda has more to offer right from the food principle relating to the life force ( Prana ) of living beings to the attitude towards eating. It nourishes the body, mind and spirit Ayurveda requires  food or diet to be personalized.

Lack of awareness of healthy dietary patterns, among food formulating & preparing professionals leads to sickness of other people. On the other hand with busy life styles issues & needs of human beings have changed. Therefore the traditional food pattern has been replaced by fast food, semi synthetic pro foods; which are the main cause of  Non Communicable diseases.
