Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The foods we eat play a major role in our health. Ayurveda is an ancient and proven system from India for creating balance and vibrant health. This app by Meditation Oasis™ provides an easy way to apply the principles of healthy eating from Ayurveda to our everyday food choices.
According to Ayurveda, the qualities of your mind and body are determined by three biological "energies" or principles called "doshas" -- vata, pitta and kapha. Each individual has a unique combination of these three bio-energies that result in their mind-body type or constitution. By determining your basic constitution and assessing your current imbalances, you will be able to modify your diet to create greater balance.
Basic Constitution Quiz to help you easily determine your mind-body type
Current Imbalance Quiz to find out your dosha imbalances
Extensive Food Properties Table of over 150 items giving each food's properties and suitability for your mind-body type
Detailed instructions for choosing the right foods to balance the doshas
A Dosha Clock that automatically shows the dosha for the season and time of day
Sample food plans for people with three different constitutions
Eating Tips for good digestion
The benefits of following an Ayurvedic diet are:

The information in this app is based on ancient Ayurvedic texts and the experience of over 25 years of applying these principles to daily life. Richard Maddux studied Ayurveda in India with Vaidya V. M. Dwivedi, Vaidya B. D. Triguna, and Vaidya Balraj Maharishi.
What's New in Version 3.0
Updated for iOS7. Improved interface.
Great app, except...
Love the app, but on some of the screens (e.g., the quiz results screen), the info at the bottom is cut off and there is no scroll option. Please fix this.
Very Good Content
I was happily surprised with this app- it's easy enough to use but very good for using and understanding Ayurvedic principles in diet.
