Sample text

A proper combination and proportion of food components is called a balanced diet and is formulated by a dietician based on rational principles. Ayurveda has its own approach to planning a daily diet for an individual. It is not based on conventional chemistry; rather, it is based on classical Panchmahabhautic chemistry and Tridoshic functions. As such, Ayurveda considers the planning of a biobalancing diet rather than a balanced diet. Besides the physics of Panch mahabhuta and biology of Tridosha, Ayurveda puts great emphasis on the Trigunatmaka consideration of food, stressing especially a Sattwika diet, which is preferred for all.

Ayurveda believes that no two people are truly identical; each individual is unique in his or her biology and ill health. All individuals require individualized care depending on their unique Prakriti and Vikriti in line with their genomic profiles. Ayurveda classifies humanity into seven Prakriti types that are genetically determined in terms of the Tridosha theory of Ayurveda. Recent developments in the field of modern pharmacogenomics are now gradually converging toward the ancient Ayurvedic theory of Dosha prakriti and its relevance for patterns of disease susceptibility and treatment response [9].
