A meal is an activity which instantly energizes one’s body. This is the consequence of the hungry person receiving the nourishment his or her body is craving for. In other words it is an instance of proportionate demand and supply. Therefore the intake of all the ingredients the body needs for sustenance and growth is most efficiently done through the food that we eat. It is for this reason that we emphasize on the paramountcy of food in our system of treatment.
While we advise consumption of plenty of organic foods – Whole grains, cereals, green vegetables, fresh/dry fruits, fresh meat/fish/eggs et al – to ensure maximum intake of solar energy, we do not subject patients to unnecessary diet restrictions; especially non-vegetarians are not at all encouraged to change their dietary habits. We also encourage consumption of many wholesome foods other than the greens. One such vital natural food is cow’s milk. There are a lot of misconceptions that prevail about consumption of whole milk and other milk products which need to be totally discounted. As a matter of fact cow’s milk is the most composite food item available in Nature.
Cow’s milk contains all the essential ingredients of proteins, vitamins and minerals that human body needs in the right proportion. Other milk products like butter, cheese, yoghurt, curd and ghee, consumed moderately, are all good for health. They all have excellent soothing and lubricating qualities. Curd and buttermilk are traditionally soothing for the digestive system while the virtues of the proverbial ‘grandma’s glass of milk’ at bedtime are legion.
