Miriam Hospodar discusses some of the fundamental principles of ayurveda, the most ancient holistic health care system in the world. Diet—Miriam ‘s expertise-- is one of the major treatment modalities of the ayurvedic system for balancing the mind, body and spirit. The Ayurvedic diet is tailored to the needs of the individual, and unlike other dietary systems, taste is an important component of healing. Miriam believes it is important that food taste delicious—which is why she dedicated years of her life to writing her cookbooks. There are six tastes defined by ayurveda and each has different affects on individuals of different doshas or governing principals.
