LONGEVITY AND NUTRITION CONCEPT
The aging process starts since the birth and it strives against the unavoidable process until the last breath. Ayurveda states that nutrition is one of the most important pillars of balanced and healthy longevity, but the poor nutrition causes serious diseases.
The known words of Hippocrates “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”, perfectly translate the nutritional approach of Ayurveda, which uses food as prevention and also to heal diseases.
The main problem and difference between Modern nutrition and Ayurveda system was the individualized approach to nutrition. For long time modern nutrition saw everybody as a similar group and didn’t consider shape, life style, metabolism and individuality. Fortunately it has changed and doctors are respecting individuality nowadays.
On the other hand, Ayurveda has known and practiced this for more than 5.000 years and has treated individuals and their unique character in a very successful way.
It is important to mention that Ayurveda Nutrition is not a miracle, neither “Ayurveda or Indian food”. Nutrition is much more vast and comprehensive and it can be adapted to the culture and life style, just by healthy suggestions to balance each one. Naturally it will be always an approach to the fresh and natural food and the way to cook and eat.
Nutrition is a very important branch of the whole healthy longevity process and works together with life style and dedication.
