HOW TO EAT FOOD – AYURVEDIC VIEW -AHARA VIDHI Empty The digestion of the ingested food is considered to be completed by the following symptoms:

Post by Admin on Sun 07 Nov 2010, 2:57 pm

The digestion of the ingested food is considered to becompleted by the following symptoms:
1. Clarity of thebelching (erection). It should not possess any particular taste either acid or that of any component of thefood taken.
2. Enthusiasm: Theperson should be active.
3. Normal regulationof natural urges.
4. Lightness of thebody.
5. Proper hunger andthirst.

The food should not be taken within the yama (3 hours) after the previous meals,because during this period, the rasa dhatu is still in the process ofdevelopment. It should not be taken after the second yama because it causesdepletion of the strength. Therefore food should be taken after 3 hours of theprevious meals and before the completion of 6 hours. It is stated earlier that the previous mealshould be completely digested before another meal is taken. But according tocharaka, taking the evening meal even though the morning meal has not beencompletely digested is not injurious. The hridaya is awakened (active) due tothe sun in the daytime like a lotus and therefore the srotases of the body arefully opened. The srotases are also open due to the exertion, movement andmental activity of the daytime. Hencethe dhatus in these srotases do not get softened (kleda) in the day. When newfood is mixed with the old, which is not softened, it does not get spoilt. Butin the night when the hridaya is in a
state of diminishedaction, the srotases including the koshtha are inactive and the dhatus getsoftened. Therefore when the food consumed in the night is not fully digested,the wise man, desiring to protect his strength and life, should not take anyfood.
Other stipulations about time:
A meal should not be eaten before the appointed time, norbefore the appetite has fully developed. Similarly, over or insufficient eatingshould be equally refrained from. Eating at an improper time and before thelightness of the body is felt, brings on a large number of diseases and mayultimately lead to death. A meal eaten long after appropriate time tends toaggravate Vata, which affects the digestive fire and causes serious obstaclesin the digestion. The food thus digested with difficulty destroys all desirefor a second meal.

HOW TO EAT FOOD – AYURVEDIC VIEW -AHARA VIDHI Empty Aharavidhi Vishesha : 8 factors

Post by Admin on Sun 07 Nov 2010, 3:14 pm

Aharavidhi Vishesha :
There are eight factors of diet and dietetics
1. Prakriti (Naturalqualities).
2. Karana (Samskara,preparation).
3. Samyoga(combination).
4. Rasi (Quantum).
5. Desa (Habitat).
6. Kala (Time).
7. Upayoga samstha(Rules of use).
8. Upayokta (user).
1. Prakriti:
Natural qualities are the innate properties of substances.The presence of qualities like heaviness etc., if the natural property ofsubstances used as diet or drug. Thus heaviness is the nature of black gram andpork and lightness of green gram and venison.
2. Karana:
Preparation is the process performed to modify the naturalproperties of substances. That which modifies radically the properties ofsubstances is transformation. This modification is brought about by applicationof water or heat, cleaning, churning, storing, maturing, flavouring,impregnation, preservation and the material of receptacle.
Examples:
1. The property ofrice is heaviness. This property is lost by washing with water and cooking andthe rice acquires the property of lightness.
2. Curd causes sopha.-But after churning, buttermilk destroys sopha.
3. Samyoga:
Combination is the combining together of two or moresubstances. This combination exhibitsspecial properties which none of the constituents ever possessed separately.
Example:
The combination of honey and ghee. Honey and ghee takenalone is wholesome to the body but combined in equal quantities, they becometoxic. Similarly the combination of honey, fish and milk has a toxic effect.
4. Rasi:
The quantum is 2 varieties:
1. Sarvagraha—totalmeasurement of the entire meal as a whole i. e. the combined quantity of therice, meat, pulse, condiments etc.
2. Parigraha—detailedmeasurement of each article of diet separately. This determines the effects ofthe right and wrong doses.
5. Desha :
Habitat is a geographic region. It indicates variations inthe qualities of substances, due to difference in soil, use and climate.Substance grown in the region of Himalayas are heavy in property while thosegrown in desert or sandy region are light. Similarly the living beings whoconsume light articles of food, or live in desert or sandy regions or indulge inmany activities are also light in nature.
Deshasatmya is that having opposite qualities to those ofthe region. Substances having the qualities of ushna, rooksha etc. arehomologous to the watery or marshy region, and the substances having thequalities of seeta, snigdha etc. for the desert or sandy regions.
6. Kala:
Time is used in two senses, time in the general sense i.e.NiTYAGA and time in the sense of a stage i.e. AVASTHIKA. Time in the generalsense is used in relation to seasonal wholesomeness. The stage is used inrelation to disease.
7. Upayoga Samstha :
The procedure in diet consists of the dietetic rules. Theyare determined by the strength of digestion.
8. Upayokta:
The user is he who makes use of food. These eight differentfactors give rise to good and evil effects and are helpful fco one another. Thephysician should try to know them, and having known them he should make use ofthe wholesome only. Either out of ignorance or negligence he should not makeuse of any article of diet or any other thing which is pleasant but unwholesomeand fraught with unhappy consequences.

HOW TO EAT FOOD – AYURVEDIC VIEW -AHARA VIDHI Empty Quantity of food relation with Quality of food & digestion:

Post by Admin on Sun 07 Nov 2010, 3:23 pm

Quantity of food and digestion:
The amount of food which, without disturbing the equilibriumof dhatus and doshas of .the body, gets digested as well as metabolished inproper time, is to be regarded as the proper quantity. This measurement withcertainly vary from individual to individual. No standard measurement can beprescribed for all Individuals. In fact, the power of digestion even of asingle individual varies from time to time and so there is bound to be somevariation in the standard measurement of food to be taken by him.
Quantity of food relation with Quality of food:
The light food articles are predominant in the qualities ofvayu and agni and heavy one in Prithvi and Ap mahabhutas. Therefore accordingto their qualities, the light articles of food, being stimulants of appetiteand by nature are considered to be less harmful even if taken in excess of theprescribed quantity. On the other hand, heavy articles of food, being bynature, suppressors of appetite are extremely harmful if taken in excess unlessthere is a strong power of digestion and metabolism achieved by physicalexercise.
If the food article is heavy only three—fourth or half ofthe stomach capacity is to be filled up. Even in the case of light foodarricles, excessive intake is not conducive to the maintenance of the power ofdigestion and metabolism. The stipulation is meant to maintain the equilibrium,of the power of digestion.

The lightness or heaviness of a food affects the idle, theunhealthy, the luxurious and men of delicate constitution and impairedappetite. Such discernment of the properties of food is not obligatory onstrong, healthy men of active habits and good healthy digestion, who arehabituated to hard and solid foods.
Three divisions of the stomach capacity:
One, about to eat a meal, ought to dispose the stomachcapacity into three parts. He should use one third for solid food, one thirdfor liquids and the remaining one third for the free movement of the threedoshas. Eating in confirmity to this rule, one is not liable to any of theill-effects resulting from eating without measure.
Effects of measured diet:
The following are the signs of food eaten in measure:
1. Freedom fromdistress in the stomach as the result of the quantity taken.
2. Freedom from theexcessive heaviness of the stomach.
3. Absence of anycardiac discomfort.
4. The non-distensionof the sides.
5. Gratification ofthe senses.
6. Subsidence ofhunger and thirst.
7. Sense of each instanding, sitting, lying down, walking exhaling and inhaling, repartee andconservation.
8. Easeful digestionand assimilation of food in the evening and morning.
9. Imparting ofstrength, complexion and plumpness.

Evils of inadequate diet:
The diet which is deficient measure is seen to result in:
1. The impairment ofstrength, complexion and plumpness.
2. Want of satisfaction.
3. Misperistalsiscausing Udavarta.
4. Impairment of thefunctions of life, virility and vitality.
5. Impairment of thefunctions of the body, mind understanding and five senses.
6. Disturbance of theeight saras.
7. Induction ofinauspicious conditions.
8. Incidence of theeighty kinds of vata disorders.
Evils of excessive diet:
The diet which is excessive in measure causes thefollowing
1. Provocation of themorbidity of all the 3 doshas.
2. These vitiateddoshas lay hold of the indigested food mass and getting localised in thestomach of man who has over-eaten and make their resort in thefood-mass.
3. They eitherobstruct or dispose of the stomach contents violently' through the upper orlower routes of the alimentary tract giving rise to many disorders.
4. One should eatafter the digestion of the previous meal. The food that is 'eaten while theprevious meal islying undigested, getting mixed with the semidigestedahararasaof the previous meal, immediately provokes the three doshas.

The taste of the madhura dravyas eaten at the outset subduethe vata located in the stomach, amia and lavana dravyas partaken of at themiddle of the meal would rouse up the digestive fire located in the Agnashaya,while the katu taste enjoyed at its close tend to subdue the kapha. At thebeginning of the meal, one should eat a mixture of saindhava lavana and ginger.This mixture stimulates the digestive fire, taste, and appetite and clears the tongueand throat .It is also stated that at the end of the meal, articles of sweettaste have to be eaten, to counteract the evil effects of the consumption of saltish, sour(acid), pungent and hot articles of food. Therefore curd which is sweet orsweetened by sugar only has to be consumed at the end of the meal, or if suchcurd is not available milk has to be taken.
