In Ayurveda the initial aim is to maintain the health of the healthy individual as a preventive measure and the second aim is treatment of diseases. For the maintenance of health of the healthy person, in classical texts different principle like Dincharya (diurnal regime), Ritucharya (seasonal regime) etc and Pathya (wholesome)–Apathya (unwholesome) are one such part of the treatment of the diseases. The term pathya (Wholesome diet) literally means ahara (diet) and vihara (regime) which is responsible for nutrition of body and mind and cleans the micro channels of the body(strotas) and apathy (unwholesome diet) which aggravates the disease and causes adverse affects.
