Q. When we are sick we are advised to take light, nourishing food. Why is it so?
Ans. During the period of sickness, our normal body functions get disturbed and body's immunity also decreases. So in such situation we need the food that could be easily digested and is nourishing enough that may help in strengthening the immune system and regeneration of cells and tissues. Nourishing food also provides us energy and vitamins that our body requires for faster recovery.
