Hello, My name is Dr Aarti Kulkarni. I am an Ayurvedic Gynaecologist. Today I am going to talk about the ultimate facts about diet. The concept of the diet is very well explained in Ayurveda.

The root cause of living being is a Diet. Thus the formation and maintenance of our body are fully dependent on the food intake, diet or Ahara.

So what is the importance of diet?

The longevity, voice quality, clarity, intellect, genius, happiness, nourishment, everything is conditioned by diet. So, diet is very important. There are multiple classifications which are available in Ayurveda. But the major classification is according to their tastes. There are 6 tastes, that is;

  • Madhur i.e; sweet
  • Amla i.e; sour
  • Lavana i.e; salty
  • Tikta i.e; bitter
  • Katu i.e; spicy
  • Kshaya rases

All these 6 rases have their own properties and functions. All these 6 rases are important but one should be visualant about its quality, quantity and timings. So, one should not be deprived of any macro or micro nutrients. So what should be the order of these tastes?

Whether it is a dal roti or a lavish feast, sweet always waits till the end. Here comes the Ayurveda.

Ayurveda says that you should eat sweet first, then salt and sour and the other tastes. because when you eat sweet first and we are hungry, then it is digested easily. But if we eat sweet at the last then it is mixed with the whole food and become hard to digest. So, the proper food is very important for our health. And likewise, the mind is also influenced by the freshness of food, aroma of the food and all senses get stimulated with it, and the digestion becomes easy.

The most common cause of bad health is the wrong diet. Hence, one should be very appropriate with the rules of diet.

What are the rules of diet?

  • Firstly, eat fresh. The cooked food kept in the refrigerator for long or over night is not at all good for health.
  • Secondly, you should not starve beyond 6 hours and not eat within 3 hours.
  • You should neither eat in a hurry nor slowly as it affects the enzymes and ultimately digestion. You should eat with full concentration and not while watching the television.

The heavy food is taken in such a way that you still feel hungry. And light food is taken in such a way that you feel full. So how should it be decided?

The solids should be eaten 1/3 rd of the stomach, liquid 1/3 rd of the stomach and 1/3 rd should be left out.

What should be about liquids?

The water should be taken in between the meals because it helps in digestion. But if the water is taken at the end of the food then it mixes with the whole food, it causes obesity which is not good. So, hot water is very good for digestion. And last but not the least. You should not eat the incompatible diet. The incompatible diet is a unique concept of Ayurveda.

What is Incompatible diet?

The two safe foods are not safe when they are combined together. They can form harmful toxins for the health. For example- Milkshakes, banana, pineapple, strawberry milkshakes are not good for health because sour and milk combination is not good. Similarly, eating honey mixed with ghee in equal proportions is not good, eating honey, eating curd, fish with radish, milk with fish, and there are n number of examples of Incompatible diet.

What are the effects of incompatible diet?

Indigestion, Irritable bowel syndrome, acidity, fever, rhinitis, infertility, baldness, blindness and what not.

These diseases are very common in an Incompatible diet.

What is the treatment?

The treatment is Panchkarma. Vamana which is Induced vomiting and Virechana which is induced loose motions. And after this, the specific medicine and prevention are adopted. Do not take food only because you like it and without knowing it. Try to know what is good and what is bad for your health from the nearest Vedya and take the food which is beneficial for you.

  • Increased insulin resistance.

Obesity in Reproductive age:

Obesity in Perimenopausal age:

The influence of female hormones on Obesity:

  • Hormonal fluctuations across female lifespan may explain the increased risk for obesity in women. Hormonal changes during menstrual cycle affect calorie and macronutrient intake and 24 hr energy expenditure. Hormaonal medicines have varying impact on body weight and fat distribution.

  • Pregnancy is significant factor in developing obesity.

  • Menopause is also a high risk time for weight gain in women. There is also hormonally driven shift in body fat distribution from peripheral to abdominal at menopause.

  • Abdominal fat is an endocrine organ producing adipokines and inflammatory factors that impact particularly on liver metabolism altering levels of triglycerides and increasing insulin resistance, this may lead to development of metabolic abnormalities, hypertension, insulin resistance, diabetes, increased cholesterol level, abnormal fat distribution, and cardiovascular diseases.

Obesity in Ayurveda

  • The Charak Samhita states that Obesity is the most challenging out of eight undesirable physical constitutional elements.

  • It is difficult condition to balance because it must be treated with reduction therapies, which become challenging due to increased appetite.

Obesity Progression according to Ayurveda

  • Excessive intake of sweet, salty, cool food, meat, low quality food, fried food, sedentary lifestyle, lack of exercise, day sleeping, excessive eating etc cause obstruction. This obstruction of kapha dosha blocks movements in digestive system and vata dosha is trapped in abdomen. This results in increased digestive power (Agni), creating more and more hunger.

  • Low quality Dhatus (Body elements) and excessive fat that is raw and unprocessed is therefore produced; hence Obesity.

Please mention your beta Hcg blood test results. So If the report is less than 1500 you won't be able to see anything in scan. It can be because of delayed conception. So repeat beta Hcg after 48 hrs of first report. It should double or at least increase by 60 %, if pregnancy is healthy and growing inside uterus. Do serum progesterone test. Keep watch every 48 hrs till it reaches more than 1500. Mean while if you have any symptoms like spotting, pain in lower abdomen, giddiness please consult gynecologist immediately. For more details you can consult me online.
