About Us
Dr. Sarita Dimri (B.A.M.S) is a graduate of Ayurvedic Medicines from the famous Lucknow University in INDIA. Her interest in the field of nutrition led her to pursue a diploma in Nutritional Education (D.N.H.E).She has been successful in amalgamating the goodness of Ayurvedic medicine with the field of nutritional aspects of weight loss/gain. Her work has led her to train, supervise and coordinate all procedures for patients on strict food plans for cardiac, renal, diabetic, weight reduction and gain, post-surgical menus; plan menu selections for all her patients.

These Days she is working as a Dietitian in Dehradun.
She provides an in-depth analysis of her patients dietary needs and also ensures her menu plans adhere to the dietary needs in sports nutrition.
She has helped many clients by first of all understanding their Prakriti that is the constitution of a person and then formulating a customized diet accordingly, as she believes that every individual is different . Her belief is that the same diet cannot work for every one even if they have the same zodiac sign, family or blood group. She says that it is important for a nutritionist and doctor to first of all  know  the patient's constitution. She has formulated a questionnaire (Know Your Prakriti) which she sends to her clients. On the basis of the answers received from her clients she by her vast experience in the field judges the client's Prakriti( Body Constitution according to Ayurvedic Medicine). Once she knows the Prakriti ,she prepares a customized diet for the client keeping in mind their Prakriti so that by the end of the programme, there should be a general feeling of good health along with the desired weight loss.

Dr. Sarita has large number of Defence and civil clients both within India and abroad. She has branches of her consultancy by the name of "Doctor’s Weight Loss" in Amritsar, Delhi and Bangalore, which are functional under her clinic coordinators.

Why Ayurveda
 

Ayurveda is the ancient Indian science of holistic medicine, believed as the oldest treatment method in the world (more than 3500 years old). Ayurveda has been developed over the centuries by sages who were gifted with universal insight and experience. With a deep understanding of the structure of life and the universe, they evolved a system of complete natural health, which concentrates on immunity as the best path to wellness.

The literal meaning of Ayurveda is 'Science of Life' (`Ayu' means life and `Veda' means knowledge). The system is passed on traditionally from master to disciples orally.

This system not only deals with the diseased state but also gives guidance for healthy living. Ayurveda is founded on certain unique principles and concepts. The science is based upon the concept of three "doshas", or humours of the body - Vatha, Pitha and Kapha. These humors lead to the creation of the universe i.e. from the infinite to the panchabhutas such as the earth, water, fire, air and ether. Vatha, Pitha and Kapha are nothing but combinations of these five elements.

The human body, which is described as a combination of these humours, is not a separate entity, but a combination of the five elements from which the whole universe is made.

This Ayurvedic diet program is for everyone whether you need to lose weight or not. Ayurveda advises preservation of the balance of nature and life. Diseases, including obesity, are caused by the imbalanced state and are cured by correct balancing of a healthy diet program, i.e. the treatment.

A Life of Total Health and Vitality is an exceptional Ayurvedic diet program and a great companion to those already familiar with Ayurveda. It is a good starting point for those who wish to lose weight naturally using our all natural healthy Ayurvedic diet methods.

 
 
Choose Food that Fit your Body Dosha
 
VATA
Eat foods that are sweet, sour and salty if you have a dominant "Vata dosha." Warm, comfort foods are best for this body type because Vata individuals usually have dry and cold bodies. Dairy products are also recommended.

PITTA
Stock up on foods that are sweet, bitter or astringent if your dosha is Pitta. Pitta individuals are fiery. They're allowed to eat all the cold desserts they want. However, reduce salt, oils and fat, and avoid alcohol, sour foods and heavy foods.

KAPHA
Try to avoid butter and foods that are sweet to keep your "Kapha dosha" balanced. Kapha individuals usually have thick hair, skin and bodies. Focus instead on foods that are pungent, bitter and astringent.
 
 
Body Constitution
 
In ayurveda it means the “priority”. The person is born with certain quality and certain constitution. This reflects his or her power, mental status, physical status and many other things. Ayurveda believes that there are two types of priority. One is mental constitution and another is physical constitution.
 
Mental Constitution
 
The body is divided into satvik, rajsik and tamasik priority.
 
SATVIK PRAKRITI
 
They are religious, loving compassionate and pure minded.
They are very mentally stable.
Even with hard work by brain, they usually don’t get mental fatigues.
They are creative, humble and obedient to their teachers.
They worship god and humanity.
They love all and care for other people.
 
RAJSIK PRAKRITI
 
They are egoistic, ambitious and aggressive.
They are proud, angry, jealous, competitive and have tendency to control other people, in that way they are good managers.
They crave for power, prestige, positions and always trying to be in pink of perfection.
They are hard workers but they do lack the proper planning and guidance.
They always afraid of failure and subject to stress and get mentally disturbed with very little tease.
They are loving, calm and patient only as long as their self-interests are served. They are good, loving, friendly and faithful only to those who are helpful to them.
Their activities are always self-centered.
 
TAMASIK PRAKRITI
 
They are less intelligent.
They tend towards depressions, laziness and excess sleep, even during the day.
Even a bit mental work disturbs them a lot.
They like the job of less responsibility and they are good eaters, drinkers, fond of sleeping and having sex.
They seem to be greedy, possessive, attached, peevish and less worried about others.
 
Blood Type and Ayurveda
 
The three doshas in ayurveda are vata, pitta, and kapha. These are roughly equivalent to the alchemical elements of air, fire and water. In ayurveda, patients are diagnosed and treated according to their primary dosha. Most people have two doshas, a primary dosha and a secondary dosha. Because there are three doshas and three main blood groups (O, A, & B), I have spent some time pondering if and how these two systems relate. I think I have worked out a way in which the blood groups correspond energetically to the three doshas. First let me give you a brief description of each dosha.
 
VATA = AIR. Vata creates a constitution that is dry, cool, lean, and quick. It creates a temperament that is mental and nervous.

PITTA = FIRE. Pitta creates a constitution that is hot, wet, muscular and strong. It creates a temperament that is active and aggressive.

KAPHA = WATER. Kapha creates a constitution that is wet, cool, slow and corpulent. It creates a temperament that is sentimental and lazy.

So here is how I see blood type corresponding with the ayurvedic doshas. This correspondence does not mean that everyone of the same blood type will have the same constitution. But perhaps there is an underlying constitutional prototype for each blood type, with genetic variation within each group.
 
BLOOD TYPE O = PITTA-KAPHA (FIRE & WATER)
 
Pitta-kapha people are large people with hot constitutions. Imagine a big burly football player with lots of body mass and a hot temper. A blend of fire and water, their actions are intimately linked with their emotions. Pitta-kapha folks sweat a lot, get reddish complexions and have issues with inflammation and excess bleeding. They are tough, strong, fierce and perseverant, making them the perfect hunter-gatherer.

Through the process of evolution, this ancient fire and water prototype was altered by the addition of air, the third element. When you had the third dosha, you get two possibilities: vata-pitta and vata-kapha.
BLOOD TYPE A = VATA-PITTA (AIR & FIRE)
 
Vata-pitta is quick, mental, active and alert. Imagine a scientist who is busy in his laboratory, making keen observations and processing information at a fast pace. Or imagine a politician, debating passionately and making shrewd negotiations. Vata-pitta people are usually lean, fit and charming. A blend of fire and air, their actions are intimately linked with their thoughts. They can have problems with nervous exhaustion, over-stimulation and accidents due to moving too fast and recklessly. This combination is smart, communicative and industrious, a perfect recipe for organizing urban society for cultivation of crops and division of labor.
 
BLOOD TYPE B = VATA-KAPHA (AIR & WATER)
 
Vata-kapha is contemplative, versatile and observant. They usually have dark features with pale or cool skin. They are watchers of life and deep thinkers. Imagine an artist or philosopher gazing into the stars and pondering the meaning of life. A blend of water and air, their emotions are intimately linked with their thoughts. They may let their imaginations run away with them. They are flexible, able to remain stable through changes, a perfect attribute for the nomadic herder watching over the herd and following its grazing patterns.

In ayurveda, different foods have different doshas. The following is a very generalized break-down of different food constituents and their doshas.

PROTEINS = VATA.
Protein has intelligence because it carries information. Protein can cause motion and chemical changes, as well as provide structure. Proteins can be water-soluble or fat-soluble. High-protein diets create a vata condition: dry and lean. Animal meat is a vata food.

CARBOHYDRATES = KAPHA. Carbs are water-soluble and have the ability to retain water. High-carb diets lead to a kapha condition: weight gain. Grains are a kapha food.

FATS = PITTA. Fats contain a lot of concentrated energy. When fats break down they release fire. High-fat diets create a pitta condition: inflammation and a release of energy. Dairy is a pitta food.

In this theory, each blood type eats more of the food that represents the dosha lacking in their own constitution. Type O, which is pitta-kapha, eats vata foods, such as high-protein animal meat. Type A, which is vata-pitta, eats kapha foods, such as high-carb grains. Type B, which is vata-kapha, eats pitta foods, such as high-fat dairy (and meat).

Now we come to the most recent evolution, Blood Type AB. In this theory, Type AB gains the doshic qualities of both A (vata-pitta) and B (vata-kapha) to become truly tri-doshic (vata-pitta-kapha). This tri-doshic state corresponds to the fourth alchemical element of earth. But Type AB may also have a slight excess of vata. This tri-doshic balance is reflected in the mixed diet of Type AB. That they have more vata than any of the other groups is reflected in their sensitive nervous systems and their susceptibility to illness. In ayurveda, diseases are broken down by dosha, but the dosha considered most responsible for the cause of disease is vata. It may be that during harsh physical conditions, evolution weeded out the vata dosha in humans to create the hearty pitta-kapha constitution of Type O. But while vata is more disease-prone, it also allows for more adaptability. It survives through intelligent planning and flexibility rather than brute force. So when the Earth’s climate warmed up and the harsh conditions declined, evolution was given the opportunity to introduce the vata dosha back into the human gene pool.
