    Food (Ahara) Incompatibility ❌ explained
    Called Viruddhahara, there are many factors as to why foods may be incompatible. The ancient Ayurvedic texts explain various types. We have highlighted a few below.

      1. Location (Called Desa in Sanskrit) An example would be to consume cold substances in marshy-type of land.

      1. Time/Season (Called Kala in Sanskrit) An example would be consuming hot substances in Summer 

      1. Digestive ability (Agni in Sanskrit) An example would be to eat heavy foods when there is a slow Agni, digestive fire.

      1. Cooking (Called Paka in Sanskrit) An example would be overcooking or undercooking foods.

      1. Constitution (Assessing the persons constitution and imbalance) For example, Kapha constitution or imbalance consuming too much sweet taste will increase ⬆️  Kapha.

    Charaka, one of the main authors of Ayurvedic original text, describes these types and more incompatible food combinations in the Charaka Samhita Sutrasthana 

    Improper food combinations will be discussed during your consultation with one of our pracitioners.
