Introduction

Nutrition and dietetics plays an important role in the well being of a normal individual as well as patient. Superficially we may feel that the modern nutrition is far different from the ayurvedic nutritional principles mentioned in our samhitas. But as we take a closer look we understand that infact both these sciences are complimenting each other.

Ayurveda has mentioned about the bio mechanics of digestion, role of agni, aahar vidhi vidhan, agraya dravyas , nithya upoyogi dravyas, concept of shad rasathmak aahar, concept of virudh aahar, vessels to be used while cooking and many more. If we can implement our principles in this modern era our kitchen itself will become a pharmacy.
