Food sustains life in all living things. Ahara or Food is considered as the “Mahabhaishajya-The Superior Medicine” according to certain scholars of Ayurveda. Intake of timely, wholesome food helps to maintain strength, immunity, growth and intellect; thereby improving the Quality of Life. Ayurveda aims not only in treating ailments, but also it focuses primarily on preserving the health by preventing illness. For preserving the Quality of Life, this time-tested Divine Science provides - advice on proper diet, daily regimens, seasonal regimens, Incompatible food combinations (Viruddhaharam) which can impair the normal metabolism of our body, guidelines in terms of nature of food to be selected, processing of various food items, influence of the time factor, the six tastes' rule, etiquettes to be followed while eating, wholesome food (Pathayaharam) and unwholesome food (Apathyahara) for each health conditions and various treatment methodologies.

Treatment according to Ayurveda is a combined play of three important factors, viz; Medicine, Diet & Proper regimens. If any of these three factors are inadequate, the efficacy of treatment wanes.
