Ayurvedic concepts

Its about 7 am in the morning, still unearthly in madhuriland......but I just cant resist posting!

have been pretty sick past few days, with my respiratory and digestive system screwed up (cold and stomach ache), have been taking ayurvedic treatments, these weird green gooey pastes, and am not sure if I am getting better because of the medicine or because my body is stunned by the shock treatment subjected due to the disgusting taste.

My eating habits sure have taken a toll this past month, not that it was ever brilliant. So I get to swallow ayurvedic preparation specifically tailor made so that you wont ever fall into trap of eating for 'taste'.

And I have ashram kitchen food to top off the effect, thank god for small mercies like 'canteen'.

On my check list of not to eat these were the things included by my ayurveda doc

Ice creams
chocolates
sweets
milk products
Fried stuff

I just cant bear to go on as I am on the verge of nervous breakdown!
I mean how cruel is this!
So yesterday my mom came back from Bihar, after a month, and brought specialty besen ke laddu, and I could not make her feel bad by refusing....then there were Tirupati prasadam (of course prasad is not counted as calories), and Lindt-Lindor, which Sampath got from half way around the world. And I haven't even met Goli, who's got Belgian choco's from Brussels.....

Wow..its a wonder that my digestive system hasn't collapsed. Guess that gooey ayurvedic paste actually works, even though it makes you wish you never had taste buds.

I am now a totally fan of ayurveda, next time I might actually try them with the diet restrictions.


PS: According to Ayurveda, you need to fallow a healthy daily routine called 'dinacharya' and the fact that i'm up so early and ready for meditation shows that I am on the right track to ayurvedic enlightenment!

Not eating choclates, well that is biggest torture I would say. I guess you should change the doc.. :).

Waise one of the recent things that I have seen getting popular in Bangalore is fruit Sandwich, you get it at juice junctions, first time it tastes weird, imagine, bananas, pineapples, stuffed inside grilled bread. But it is not that that bad :). You could try it.
It does not figure in your list of "no no" items.

one thing I learnt from Rajesh S is that you can still have those attractive food stuff, if you 1. limit the quantity, 2. have more alkaline things in diet than acidic. the problem is, most of our food is acidic, and our body is alkaline. Have a look at my post: http://2hitchhikers.blogspot.com/2009/01/food-medicine-and-poison-ii.html
