  2. 2. Importance of Food• Food can cause as well as health and Disease• Food in health is choice & in disease compulsory• Tasty Foods helps disease to grow rather than body• Healthy mind takes healthy foods• Scientifically best foods also have no action on bad mind – it helps the disease than human• Foods – does they improve health or disease?• Scientific foods taste is questionable• How food prevent the disease?• Present situation of Ayurveda is – hanging between holistic approaches and scientific methods• The difference is – as Ayurvedic Ghee – from curd is healthy and scientifically developed diary raw milk Ghee is unhealthy
  3. 3. Introduction• Ayurveda is • A question here is – “whether the Ayurveda is considered by the a “Medicine” or “Food” western community as • If, the Ayurveda is food – “Food” and marketed why the Food faculties with a label of “Food like NIN doesn’t involve Items” Ayurveda graduates –• Normally food is in a • If it is a medicine – why huge quantity and for the dignity of equality is not provided by the development of body Government• Where in the Medicine • The questions are is always in a small endless and without quantity and restores answers – remains as the health from questions disease

  7. 7. “Let Food be Your Medicine”• How come we make the Food as medicine- – To eat less as medicine or – “Focus on Prevention” through food• Ayurveda cares about the health through foods and supplements also• Ayurveda classics deal exclusive chapters on nourishment and nutritive values of the food• They describe even recipes that are useful in Disease• In disease pathogenic Channel (Srotas), selective Iso-bio-available foods are scheduled as ‘pathya’ or diet• All the Pathya are not Medicines but they become buffers of medicines
  8. 8. Pathya - Nutriceutical• Pathya is a nutritive curative diet preparation could be termed as Nutriceuticals.• In Ayurveda the term Nutriceuticals is explained as ‘Pathya’ and ‘Rasayana’ is better.• Still it is necessary to differentiate and demarcate these terms of use.• Nutriceutical is defined as “A food or part of food or nutrient that provides health benefits, including the prevention and treatment of a disease.”• Or - “Art and science of preparing and dispensing food as medicine in the practice of healing” ie. Pathya in Ayurveda.
