Ayurveda classifies food not as proteins or carbohydrates etc. but according to its effect on the body and mind. It classifies food based on three qualities or gunas that governs human life – sattva, rajas and tamas.
These three qualities are present in our body in varying degree and have a direct influence on us, our moods, emotions and consequent health. There is an ancient Ayurvedic proverb which sums it up- “When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use. When diet is correct, medicine is of no need.”
Just for the next 30-days, go on a special diet plan. Include only sattvic vegetarian food in your diet plans and let us know how you feel: examine your energy level, moods, emotions, and thoughts. We’d like to hear from you. For better experience, add 30-minutes of yoga too. Write to us at email@example.com.
