Incorporate spices like turmeric, cumin, fennel seeds, coriander, and hing (asafetida) in your diet.
Drink ginger or cumin tea once a day.
Avoid ice-cold drinks or food.
Don’t drink ice water as it slows Agni and digestion.
Don’t snack, if not hungry.

Avoid contradicting food combinations, such as very hot and cold food or raw and cooked food together.
Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing that has its origins in the Vedic culture of India. Although suppressed during years of foreign occupation, Ayurveda has been enjoying a major resurgence in both its native land and throughout the world. Early Greek herbs also embraced many concepts originally described in the classical Ayurvedic herbs texts dating back several thousands of years.
More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vital while realizing their full human potential.
Providing guidelines on ideal daily and seasonal routines, diet, behavior and the proper use of our senses, Ayurveda reminds us that health is the balanced and dynamic integration between our environment, body, mind, and spirit.
