Ayurveda says that the health of the body and the causes of diseases according to the position of the three doshas. Which is very logical. In a healthy person, all these three doshas are found in a balanced state and in an unhealthy person, any one or all three of these doshas are found unbalanced. Ayurveda balances the imbalanced doshas of the body only through yoga, exercise, natural foods and nature-based medicines. This is clearly possible through food because every food item also has its own Dosha nature. Even in normal conditions, a person should understand his physical dosha and eat food based on that.
Anti Body Dosha Food: Invitation to Diseases
It is clearly stated in Ayurveda that every person should consume his food only on the basis of his physical defect. Failure to do so can lead to a un-balanaced state of dosha in his body, due to which he can be surrounded by many types of diseases. As an example, it can be said that a person with pitta body should avoid food that aggravates pitta dosha. It is not so easy to understand this because the food will be completed according to the dosha only when the dosha nature of the body, the defective nature of the food and the faulty nature of the season are understood. Let us understand further in detail.
Mahabhutas status in body and Dosha Food
Panch Mahabhutas are Fire, Air, Water, Sky and Earth. The human body is also made of these 5 . But the position of the five Mahabhutas in the body of every human being is not the same but different. Due to its diversity, Ayurveda formulates the theory of 3 doshas. This is Vata, Pitta and Kapha. has a different status in everybody, on the basis of that Ayurveda understands the specialties of the body. On the basis of these Vata, Pitta and Kapha doshas, each body has its own special abilities, shortcomings and merits. Those who understand it should take food according to it and should stay away from food that harms that specific dosha body.
foods Dosha Nature: Dosha Food
According to Ayurveda three doshas Vata , Pitta and Kpaha also found in every food item. The food items also carry the characteristics of Tridosha. Food can increase or decrease Vata, pitta and Kapha. Ayurveda believes that even in food items, the characteristics of the five great elements(mahabhutas) are present. Food also has the ability to harm or heal the body. The special thing is that this benefit or harm from the food will depend on the nature of the body’s own Dosha status.
Same Dosha Food for same body Dosha is harmful
Same body dosha and food dosha together are harmful to health. Ayurveda says for good health it is compulsory to avoid the same Dosha nature food, especially in excess amount. Because this can lead to excess dosha status in the body. If a person with Vata body dosha regularly eats food that has vata quality . Then it can increase the dosa in his or her body. As the result, that person can suffer from pain, swelling, bad digestion and gut health. So for a balanced dosha situation in the body. The Vata Dosha person should eat more foods that have Kapha and pitta quality and Vata food with a limited amount. This food rule will balance dosha in the body and will provide a long-term health.
Seasons, Environment and Dosha Food
Any season or place has its own special feature. Whether this place is hot, cold, humid, is it near or far from the sea, is it a mountain or a desert, winter, summer, spring, or winter. All these specialties determine the dosha, variety and qualities of the food there. So you will see the trend of hot nature food tradition in places where it is almost always cold. And a place where it is always hot will see the local trend of body-cooling foods. Which is very important for the health of the body. Every person should take food according to the place of intake, nature of food and his physical Dosha type.
