In Ayurveda, special attention has been given to our food and drink. Depending on the right quantity of food, right time and right qualities, how beneficial it can be to the body, is the core of Ayurveda. If food is right, it can increase ojas (life force) in our body and if wrong, it can increase ama (poison). In Ayurveda, balancing the three doshasVata, Pitta and Kapha in our body is also considered necessary. Many people continue to have digestive problems.
