Author information

Health Through Ayurveda.

Abstract

In some ancient systems of medicine, health was understood as a state of balance, and diet was considered essential to achieving and maintaining that balance. Traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda are based on this premise. Here we present an overview of these two traditional systems' views on diet and eating. This article aims to explain the reasoning behind some of the recommendations that practitioners of these forms of medicine may be making.
