Importance Of Diet

“The patient doesn’t require any medicine if he has a wholesome diet and he doesn’t require any medicine either, if he isn’t on a wholesome diet.”

Ayurveda lays emphasis on the above-mentioned old dictum because it gives utmost importance to the diet of the patient when it comes to fight back an illness or disease. The aforementioned old dictum means that a person will not require medicine if he is following a wholesome diet plan or eating a balanced diet because he will not fall ill; and he will not require medicine either if he is not on a wholesome diet or if his diet is faulty because no medicine will help him in this case without a proper diet.

There is an interesting story in this connection – an Ayurveda doctor or physician advised a patient suffering from stomachache to have his eyes treated. The advice astonished the patient but he followed the physician’s advice and got his eyes treated, and the he never suffered that kind f stomachache in the future. The advice was correct because the patient had told the physician that he got stomachache after he had eaten a burnt chapatti (he had eye sight problem). Had he not committed that indiscretion, he would not have suffered from that malady.
