Is anyone familiar with ayurvedic diets?  Would like some input. Thanks. :)

Those who follow ayurvedic medicine in South india are about 70% vegetarian and the remainder are vegan. They use a fruit called kokum (Garcinia indica) related to mangosteen to help with detox. They also use many unusual vegetables not often found in other countries. The diets use a lot of moringa, okra, amaranth, chick pea flour (Chana Besam) and small red shallots as well as dal/split peas and beans.   If there is an Indian area in your town you might check to see what they have.

Kenlove,

Are you familiar with the different doshas?  If so, what does it mean having a high dosha?

I think there are  3 types but not sure of the details. you might be able to order things you need or get seeds to grow your own veggies. There are a number of veggiews form south india like bitter melon which  are used to control blood sugar.  many things are geared towards individual problems like diabetes. good luck
