Ayurveda places special emphasis on Ahar (diet) and Anna (food) and believes that healthy nutrition nourishes the mind, body and soul. Ayurveda does not discriminate food to be good, or bad, instead it emphasizes various factors that influence food, such as its biological properties, origin, environmental factors, seasons, preparation, freshness, and provides a logical explanation of how to balance food according to one’s dosha and physical needs.
There is no letter that is not a mantra, there is not a root that is not a food/medicine
There is not a man who is not useful. It is the coordinator of these elements who is a rare breed and is limited by hislher wisdom.
