Ayurveda is a traditional Eastern system of medicine, which is based on the idea that the proper diet helps to balance the body and ensure good health. In Ayurveda, it is believed that every baby is born with 1 of 3 different types of Ayurvedic makeup (aka "dosha"). Each dosha (pronounced doe-shah) requires different types of food to keep them happy and healthy.
