“Ahaara”: Food for Holistic Health

Food is one of the basic necessities for sustenance of life. It forms the source of energy and nutrition to each and every cell of the body enabling them to function efficiently.

They say, “you are what you eat”.

But, is a good diet limited to only what we eat?!

Can health be regulated only through what we eat? Or do we need to consider some other factors as well?!

For food to undergo proper ingestion, digestion, absorption, assimilation and excretion we need to ponder upon 6 aspects of diet. They are:

  1. What to eat?
  2. When to eat?
  3. How to eat?
  4. How much to eat?
  5. What to do before food?
  6. What to do after food?

Individuals who understand these and modulate their dietary habits accordingly will surely experience replenishment of health at the physical, mental, social and spiritual levels and hence move a step closer towards holistic health.
