Acharya Charak, born in Northern India around 300 BC, is considered the “father of medicine and nutrition." He codified his cooking in Charaka Samhita, perhaps the oldest cookbook (written in Sanskrit), where he states, “Wholesome diet is essential for good health and to prevent diseases.” Since ancient times, India has been known for the use of a variety of restorative herbs and spices that help strengthen and maintain the immune system.
