Kitchen Remedies

Now that you have a very general idea of Ayurvedic medicine and the focus of food and diet in the balancing of health you can now take this information with you as you explore different approaches to health care, treating disease, and eating a nutritious diet.

As you read about these foods think about your constitution and how these foods could help balance your health based on Ayurvedic principles.
