Our diets are tailor made to each individual programme at SwaSwara. Those on the Swa Wellbeing is served a healthy diet of vegetarian and seafood and also wine is offered as a part of this programme. Those on the 7 and 14 nights Rejuvenation and Detox & Panchakarma programmes would follow the Sattvic diet where the doctor would prescribe a personalised diet for each individual based on their Doshas.
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 diet must be holistic. One can not separate one from the other, you can not say one food is good for the body, one food is good for the mind and one good for the soul, it is always a union of all three. The minute you see food and say, "Oh, wow. It's so good." That's the food that your body requires. The food should look really appealing, should smell very good and looks tasty. Only after your appetite starts increasing as you eat. That's the food that would feed the body, mind and soul.

After the arrival to Kalari Rasayana, patients have consultation with senior ayurveda doctor, who diagnose the main problems and causes of the disease and I conduct the diet consultation. Only after both consultations we get an idea, how the disease is connected with their food habits and if there is a reason to change the lifestyle patterns.

Within 14 or 21 days, during which they are staying with us, we are making some changes in their existing diet based on their digestive capacity, which is different for every person.
