Diet Recommendations (Aahar)

  • Fruits and vegetables: broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, apples, pears
  • Breakfast of cooked apple with cooked prunes and figs can help lower cholesterol levels.
  • Bitter foods like spinach and mustard greens when cooked and seasoned with spices can help prevent accumulation of the bad type of cholesterol
  • Avoid sweet, salty and sour foods.
  • Always cook food and eat it warm, to counteract the cool, earthy Kapha Dosha.
  • Cook with small amounts of ghee or olive oil

Lifestyle changes (Vihar)
