Ayurveda is the oldest traditional medicine system in the world, built around the five
balancing elements – ether, air, fire, water, and earth. The herbal plant-based medicine and nutrition discovery originated in our homeland, India, over three thousand years ago. It emerged from the Atharvaveda and is known to show great success in building an all-round healthy lifestyle in people of all age groups.
The foundations of Ayurveda were laid by the ancient schools named Vaisheshika and Nyaya, based on the core philosophical teachings. The Vaishesshika school was about a patient’s pathological condition’s inferences and perceptions (for treatment). In contrast, the Nyaya school focused on its teachings based on having proper knowledge of the patient’s condition before moving forward with the treatment. Both schools amalgamated to form the Nyaya-Vaisesika school in the later stages and helped propagate as much knowledge about Ayurveda as possible. The amalgamation led to a robust Ayurvedic emergence in diet that aims to boost health, promote self-love, maintain a wholesome lifestyle, and instil positive energy amongst young individuals.
The concept of Ayurvedic food and nutrition follows a meal plan that is solely based on the core principles of Ayurvedic medicine that states to prevent and treat illness instead of solely responding to the ailment’s indicator. The sickness is prevented and treated by maintaining
harmony and balance in and between your mind, body, and the environment.
The Ayurvedic diet involves and restricts certain food types based on an individual’s dosha and body type that helps maintain healthy body weight, support mindfulness, and internal bodily well-being.
An individual’s dosha is determined by examining their emotional, mental, physical, and behavioral characteristics. Here are the three doshas existing in this Ayurvedic sphere –
The Kapha dosha is based on the earth and water segment that can be described as poised, heavy, stable, steady, soft, slow, and cold. Spring is the Kapha season, as many areas across the globe witness an exit from hibernation in that particular season. The people with this particular dosha are mostly strong-headed, caring, thick-skinned, and determined. They act as a strong pillar of strength and support to others and are able to maintain a balance. It is tough to upset someone who has a strong Kapha dosha and always think before they act to live slow, slowly, and deliberately. Such individuals have a healthy immune system and strong joints and bones. However, they are also prone to slow metabolism, weight gain, over-sleeping, susceptible to depression, and require constant motivation, interaction, and engagement to keep their spirit alive. Spicy, filling, and acidic foods are the best diet for Kapha doshas!
The Pitta dosha is a firm personality and is based on the fire and water element. Summer is the season of this dosha as it is known to be hot, oily, liquid, mobile, and sunny in general.
People with Pitta are mostly very athletic, active, strong leaders and have a solid muscular build. They are very goal-oriented, motivated, energetic, and competitive. However, their aggressive and stubborn nature is not very appreciated by all as it leads to conflict amongst people. Such individuals are able to learn and retain information quickly, have a quick metabolism, great skin, and hair along proper blood circulation. However, they feel hungry in short intervals, go through severe mood swings, and are prone to inflammation and acne as they are sensitive to hot temperatures. Cold, sweet, light, and energy foods are the best in the diet for Pitta doshas!
The Vata dosha is made from the elements of air and space (ether) and follows a light, cold, flowing, easy, rough, and spacious description. Autumn is the festival of this dosha as it defines cold and crisp days.
The individuals with this dosha are primarily energetic, creative, and have a slim body type. Their creative trait helps them think outside of the box but get easily distracted and have a hard time concentrating. Mood swings of these people flow according to the current weather, food they eat, and the people surrounding them.
Such people are able to learn quickly, are great multitaskers, are very kind-hearted and flexible, and naturally follow a slim body shape throughout their lives (mostly). However, they are also very anxious most of the time, have an unstable mood, and are forgetful even of the most important things. They get easily overwhelmed and are prone to irregular appetite and digestive issues like gas.
