You have the option to have your meals served in the privacy of your own room or in the dining room.
In Ayurveda, food is one of the important medicines. During a Panchakarma, the food is prepared in a special manner, everything is well cooked and hot spices are not used. This is to get your digestive fire working at its optimal level. Very often the reason for many illnesses lies in the digestive tract! This is the reason why you will not find crunchy salads, spicy or raw food on the menu during your Panchakarma. It may sometimes feel a bit boring, but believe the doctors who have put the menu together, it has a powerful effect on your health!
