Herbs and Spices
“Herbs and Spices are used since the ages in giving the flavor to the food we consume each day and more even as Medicine in every tradition be it the East or West.”
Traditional Indian medicine (or Ayurveda) is becoming increasingly popular worldwide, with many chronic lifestyle ailments showing better results and lesser re-occurrences. While the conventional mainstream medicinal practice has its dominance with emergency care, acute care, Surgical interventions, and Infection management to a huge extent, but it is not disregarded that it does not always outperform traditional ayurvedic approaches in lifestyle and Immune-related ailments.

Ayurveda with its base of FOOD as MEDICINE has much to offer with a wide range of Herbs and Spice to check on these lifestyle disorders.

Food plays a major role in ayurvedic practice by supporting the body’s healing processes. Metabolic diseases and diseases of the gastrointestinal tract are directly influenced by food. Food can also indirectly affect diseases of the skin, muscles, and joints, as well as any neurological, gynecological, and psychological disease.
Infrequent consumption is unlikely to cause a problem, but frequent consumption of inappropriate foods will cause disease or worsen existing disease. Advice on food depends not only on the disease but also on the disease condition and the dosha involved. Because of this, food advice may change throughout the course of a disease, depending on the stage reached. Interactions between foods and medicines are a major issue. The advice given with regard to food must take account of the medicines prescribed.
