Food is vitally important in the prevention of a disease, in the treatment (chikitsa) of disease and the recurrence of a disease (Rasayana).

Ayurveda explains the concept of Pathya Ahara which can be translated as food which does not cause harm to the body.

“Food that is wholesome, nutritious, soothing and healing is called pathya”.

Pathya Ahara is especially important after body purification procedures such as Panchakarma, when suffering from chronic conditions and weak digestive fire (Agni). 🔥

Ayurveda advises having food which is light (laghu) in nature this will help to restore the strength of Agni 🔥

Rice 🌾 gruels such as Manda, Peya, Vilepi and Yavagu are described.
