When the food is wrong, no medicine can help, if the food is right, there will be no need for medicine.

Our modern lifestyles often leave us feeling restless and caught up in a hectic routine. Consequently, irregular eating habits have become commonplace, which can contribute to increased levels of anxiety and depression. When stress takes its toll, we often find comfort in fried or sweet foods, which provide a temporary sense of pleasure and a fleeting mental rush, similar to the allure of cigarettes and alcohol. This form of eating, often referred to as ’emotional eating,’ emerges as a craving for the pleasurable tastes these foods offer, driven by a desire to ease our emotional distress.

How we have evolved and Our Appetite

Our ancestors lacked the easy access to sugary and sweet foods that we enjoy today. They could only indulge in seasonal offerings, which naturally controlled their consumption. Their brains were wired to seek out sugar, fat, and salt whenever these treats were available.

Today, our connection with food has evolved significantly due to the constant availability of all types of food throughout the year. Despite our advancements, our brains still retain primal instincts, often craving these specific tastes. When our willpower falters in regulating our food choices, we often overindulge in sweet, fatty, and salty foods, straining our bodies with more than they can handle. This leads to the accumulation of indigestive substance (Ama) as a waste metabolic product. It can be a cause of various types of chronic diseases, especially autoimmune system disturbances.

Why Our Ayurvedic Resort Doesn't Offer Buffet Dining

Ayurveda Tamarind Tree Garden Resort was established with the intention of providing a space where individuals can address their existing health concerns and also relearn the behaviors that may have contributed to these issues. We recognize that the environment plays a pivotal role in reshaping deeply ingrained behaviors, in conjunction with an individual’s determination.

While receiving treatment at our resort, we are pleased to offer an Ayurvedic breakfast buffet, specifically designed to align with your health goals. Unlike other meal settings, our buffet serves as a mindful and selective option that doesn’t pose a potential trigger for guests to revert to unhealthy eating patterns. We understand that certain eating habits, such as overeating or consuming specific food combinations, can lead to issues like indigestion, sluggishness, and bloating. At Ayurveda Tamarind Tree Garden Resort, we prioritize creating an environment that fosters self-discipline and supports your journey to wellness.

Moreover, we encourage our guests to practice mindful eating, savoring their meals at their own pace. A buffet setting, when carefully curated and selective, allows for a positive dining experience without inducing unnecessary haste.

Your experience at Ayurveda Tamarind Tree Garden Resort is a collaborative effort involving our doctors, therapists, chefs, and all of our dedicated staff. We are attuned to the specific needs of each guest, and all aspects of your treatment, including your Ayurvedic meal plan, are thoughtfully integrated to facilitate your recovery. We believe in creating a healing environment that ensures you achieve the most favorable results during your stay with us.

Exploring the Six Tastes in Ayurveda

These tastes are classified not only by their perception by the tongue but also by their action on the body. The functions of the six tastes are described below.

Ayurvedic Food Guidelines During Panchakarma Period

Divisions of Food during the Panchakarma Journey

During the initial phase of your therapeutic journey, we focus on providing light and easily digestible meals. This approach helps prevent bloating and prepares your body for the forthcoming purification therapies. For example, if your doctor prescribes Ghee (clarified butter) for the first 3-4 days, you will be advised to skip your breakfast.

In cases where individuals experience low appetite and irregular bowel movements, it may be due to an excess of mucus in the digestive system. To address this, we incorporate specific herbs aimed at enhancing Agni (digestive fire) and metabolism. This practice, known as ‘Ama Pachana Ahara,’ is designed to restore balance and harmony to your digestive system.

For those who struggle with strong food cravings, our goal is to retrain both the mind and body to derive maximum energy from standard portion sizes and break the habit of overindulgence. In Ayurveda, the ‘Vipaka,’ or aftertaste of food, holds significant importance. Following your meals, you should feel light and energized. In cases where intense cravings are a challenge, we offer a carefully structured four-meal plan to mitigate hunger and gradually reduce those cravings.

During the cleansing stage, specific food guidelines are closely integrated with the therapeutic procedures. Panchakarma, a detoxification therapy, is centered around the identification and removal of toxins from the body. Prior to certain treatments, such as Virechana (induced purgation), we introduce foods with qualities that stimulate the particular dosha present in the body.

In the case of Virechana, which aims to balance the Pitta dosha, we provide foods with sour attributes to ignite Pitta’s energies. This deliberate increase in Pitta facilitates its expulsion from the body during the treatment, ensuring a controlled rise in this dosha to effectively eliminate excesses.

Similarly, for the purpose of harmonizing Kapha, we implement a combination of food adjustments and treatments to eradicate excess Kapha from the body. This intricate interplay of meal and therapies is an essential part of the Panchakarma process.

As you transition into the post-cleansing healing stage, it’s important to recognize that your digestive system has become highly sensitive. During your Panchakarma journey, you’ve predominantly consumed easily digestible soups and light meals. Given this newfound sensitivity, we strongly recommend avoiding heavy foods and alcoholic beverages immediately after completing your Panchakarma treatment.

Once your metabolism stabilizes, we gradually reintroduce regular, nourishing foods to your meal. This careful reintegration ensures a gentle transition as your body readjusts to a more diverse menu. Moreover, we are well-prepared to accommodate specific meal requirements, offering tailored meals for individuals with conditions such as diabetes, lactose intolerance, and gluten sensitivity. Our commitment is to support your post-cleansing journey towards sustained health and well-being.
