Ayurveda doctors and experts answer your questions.
In ayurveda we see food as Annam Brahma (God is Food). When we are talking about the food, we are not moving only on the earth surface. Food is the main source of our energy, it is more important than medicines themselves. Our kitchen should be real pharmacy, but the source of our energy is also spiritual origin. It depend also when, where, how and with who you are eating your food. It all influences digestion and healing process. If digestive system works properly, the healing is faster. The heavy ayurveda treatments must be balanced with light food. All must be in harmony.
Yes, our kitchen is also pharmacy. For every person we are preparing diet, which is prescribed by our doctor, who is cooperating with the kitchen on daily base. Each person is treated differently. The diet depend on one’s health problems and dosha prakriti. The recipes are simple. They are focusing on usage of spices and ingrediencies such as garlics, ginger, turmeric or some cumin seeds. Also the quantity and type of an oil must be considered. These are the most important elements, which improve immunity and digestion. Knowing what, when and how much quantity should be added into each dish is a secret of ayurvedic diet.

The food in our restaurant is a medicine actually. Ayurveda says, we are getting the most of the diseases because of our food habits. It is very important how you prepare the food, what kind of ingredients you are using, from where come vegetables and fruits, who cook the food, how and etc.
Yes, in a way, kitchen can be a pharmacy. Food can be medicine. If you treat disease with the ideal drug, you can cure it. But, if you are eating a proper food, you don't need the medicine.
