Health and diseases occur due to proper and improper food respectively. The role of dietary regimen in the form of Pathya kalpana for prevention of diseases is one of the peculiarities of Ayurveda. Different Acharyas have mentioned various Pathya Kalpana like Manda, Peya, Vilepi, Yusha etc. Yusha (soup) being one of them, indicated as a wholesome diet for a healthy or a person under Ayurvedic medication or during and after purification procedures. Yusha is prepared by taking one part of grain other than paddy preferably legumes and cooked in eighteen parts of water.
