With a moderate temperature, abundant monsoon showers, rare varieties of Ayurvedic medicinal plants and pristine nature has helped people in Kerala make Ayurveda a way of life. The tropical forests of Kerala are blessed with Ayurvedic herbs that are found nowhere else on the planet.

 People usually think of spas and resorts when they think of Ayurveda. But Ayurveda is more than that. It is the oldest healthcare system in the World which follows a holistic approach towards life. I remember those good old days when the eldest members in our family cannot take a bath without an oil massage with ayurvedicremedies prepared with home grown herbs.

The Ashtavaidyas or the Ayurvedic treatment was their prime option for any kind of illness and so was their diet. Like I mentioned before, it is a way of life for them.

 Ayurvedic Diet

The digestion and nutritional aspects of food has a remarkable connection. Let me brief you about the influence of the nutritional aspects of food in Ayurveda.

There are 8 factors:

Prakriti – is the nature of the food
Karana – the way food is processed
Samyoga – combinations of different food
Rashi – the quantity of food
Desha – the influence of region on food
Kaala – influence of time on food
Upayoga samastha – the rule in dietetics
Upayoktha – the person who consumes the food.

 Following these aspects can help anyone stay healthy. I think it is high time that I talk about some of the important Ayurvedic recipes of Kerala.
