Promote Gut Health

Eat balanced nutrients

 Integrate ancient wisdom of healing foods to rid 21st century disease and nourish your gut with the right ingredients!

Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of dietetics. One verse from an ancient Ayurvedic text states:

With good dietetics there will be no need for medicines.

Without good dietetics medicines will be ineffective.

So, whether you are thinking of promoting health or treating disease, diet and digestion are fundamental.

Of these two, digestion is considered the more important. The best foods in the world are not much good if you cannot properly digest them.

Digestion is part of the relationship between you and the Universe. You consume and integrate a portion of the Universe when digesting. There are three considerations for good digestion. There is you, there is the food and there is, most important of all, your digestion.

The importance of Agni and Ama

Agni is the word in Ayurveda for your ‘digestive fire’. It includes not only the breakdown and absorption of food but also its further transformation in liver and cells to generate energy, create new tissues and eliminate toxins. There are 13 digestive fires. The first and most important is in your gut. Not only does your gut digest your diet, but it also lights all your other fires. In other words, it empowers your metabolism and is responsible for good energy and health.

If your fires burn bright they transform the fuel of your diet and produce ojas. Ojas is the finest product of good digestion that gives wonderful vitality, excellent strength, stamina and immunity, integration of mind and body and the projection of joy, love and intelligence. If your fires burn poorly, or are disturbed, they produce more smoke… Ama… which is a sticky toxic material that clogs fine channels. This blocks the entrance of nutrients into your tissues, the evacuation of toxins, and inhibits the flow of energy and of life. The eventual result of the build-up ofama is disease. So for good health it is essential to take care of your digestion.
