Food Guidelines for Specific Doshas

Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old holistic health system from India.  At its core -  is the belief that good health starts in our gut.

For example; fruit is always an excellent choice, however, to combine fruit with other foods is almost always a bad idea.  Why?  Fruit is digested quicker than other foods which can lead to fermentation = indigestion.
