The Art & Science of Digestion:
When diet is wrong medicine is of no use.
When diet is correct medicine is of no need.
I work with people of all ages seeking a healthier, better experience of life on all levels.
What ever their circumstance or situations, the first places I begin with is the state of the digestion. According to Ayurvedic principles- if we can digest our food and have a healthy digestive capacity, we can digest our thoughts, emotions and experience of life. In short- we have good health.
It’s all about AGNI
If there is weakness in the digestion it can cause a whole host of dis-ease. As Hippocrates (the father of western medicine) said: “Every disease begin in the stomach”. He was referring to this foundation of health that Ayurveda bases it self on. The digestive health is know as AGNI- the digestive FIRE. If it’s tended to and respected it provides heat, light, vital energy for life. If its mis-used and becomes too strong- it burns and destroys. If it becomes too weak- it cannot give vitality required for healthy living.
Weakness in digestion (a weak Agni) is the root cause for most of the ailments we suffer from today.
Do any of the following sound familiar?
Sleep issues/insomnia, general fatigue, skin outbreaks, arthritis, gas throughout the day, bloating, water retention, loose bowels, constipation (going once or less in a day is constipation), heart burn, reflux, nausea, brain fog, imbalanced emotions, PMS, fast signs of ageing, anxiety, dark circles around the eyes, various forms of depression, emotional stress, allergies, asthma… the list is endless. And these are the conditions that so many of us feel are just a “normal” part of life. Or better still- A.G.E.
If this is how we are reduced to living then we are CHEATING ourselves! IN 95% of the cases we don’t need to a doctor to get prescriptions. We need to take responsibility for the fact that we are creating this imbalance- and there is something fundamental in our diet, eating behaviours and likely too our routine and lifestyle that is fuelling this ailment/issue.
Ayurveda goes to the ROOT of the issue. And it begins in balancing the GUT.
