Ayurveda is clear on this: all health - let's repeat this - ALL good health starts with digestion; with the proper metabolism of food.
Accordingly, one of the most important things we can do for our health every day of the year is to eat wisely.
Food is considered just as powerful as medicine. In fact, there is a sloka (writings of the ancient texts of ayurveda) that says "food is medicine when consumed properly." If we eat foods uniquely suited to our physiology, and follow a sattvic (life supporting) routine that enhances digestion, our bodies will reap the benefits and we will find that our days will be happier, healthier and filled with real vitality - at any age.
