AYURVEDA DOCTORS AND EXPERTS ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS.
In ayurveda, if you are not going through treatment process, there are no restrictions for alcohol, coffee or tea, but again there is a question when, with whom and which quantity to have it. Enjoying a drink in a good company can bring you peacefulness, calmness and relaxation. Alcohol can become a medicine if you have it just in a right quantity. But one must learn how to tame the temptation to use it as the only medicine… (laughing).
Our ayurveda diet is pure vegetarian. It is based on local recipes, but we try to serve organic vegetables and fruits, which are available also abroad, it helps foreigners to adjust to ayurveda diet. Between the main meals, we served fruit juices and ayurvedic herbal water. We do not serve non – vegetarian dishes. (Meat is not prohibited according to ayurveda, but is not recommended during the treatment process) and we do not serve alcohol, coffee or tea. Also smoking is not recommended.
Ayurveda says for a wise person it is better to avoid alcohol. Some medicines contain an alcohol, but it is not recommended the regular consumption. If you need to take the alcohol, it's recommended only for the winter time. In the summer time, there is a special type of drinks which you should drink. Ayurveda is not against alcohol, but it should be used in the wise way.
Everything has a benefit and bad effect. If you are drinking a coffee or tea, it will not harm your body. If you are eating a sugary food, it will not harm you. But if you're drinking only the coffee, if you are eating only the sugar, that makes you the problem.
We are advising the person who is addicted to the coffee, to take it in the morning time only. In the morning the circadian rhythm of the body and melatonin secretion is strong. Drinking a coffee will enhance the melatonin secretion stopping process. In the night time, the melatonin increases production and if you drink the coffee at that time, your sleep will be disturbed.
In Kalari Rasayana during the treatment process we do not allowing any coffee or any tea.
