Introduction- During the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, when there was neither a vaccine available nor any proven remedy to protect against the virus, individuals eagerly sought out foods that could be incorporated into their diets to strengthen their immune systems and, consequently, combat the infectious disease. Ayurvedic literature addresses a wide range of topics related to Aahar or food, including the variety of natural sources, their characteristics linked to seasons and locations, and their particular roles in both physiological and pathological conditions. Dhatus, Dosha, and Mala of the body are being constantly decayed by the respective fires every day. In order to compensate this loss an adequate supply of Aahar is required. Aahar nourishes the body, gives quick strength, maintains the body, and increases Ayu(lifespan), Teja, Utsaah(enthusiasm), memory, Oja, and Agni. Consuming all the six Rasas in the Aahar and by following the Aaharvidhi Vidhan auspicious results are drawn. The concept of Aahar Satmya also plays a role in understanding our tolerance towards diseases i.e., Vyadhikshamatava. Aim & Objective- Study of the relation of Aahar and Vyadhikshamatava. Method- In light of the instructions given by the CCIM/Government of India for preventing COVID panic, this study was started in 2021 as a Dissertation. Result- Aahar and Vyadhikshamatava are closely linked to each other.

Conclusion- Aahar in accordance with the principles of Swabhavopram and Kshanabhangurvaad, as well as modern medical science plays a crucial role in the continuous process of wear and tear in the body contributing to both damage and regeneration.
