The Secret of Great Digestion

If you want to feel vital and beautiful, the dietary secret is universal:

Good Digestion + Good Assimilation/Absorption + Good Elimination =
Feeling Like a Bombshell

Being an Ayurveda bombshell isn’t about the way you look. Being a bombshell is about how you feel. We all know that eating the right foods is essential for a beautiful body, good skin, a clear mind, and energetic balance. What we may not be aware of is that healthy eating is not enough. The best food on the planet can’t help you if you don’t have the digestive fire to transform and assimilate what you are putting in your body. The ancient texts called this digestive fire agni. Agni is what transforms and assimilates what we are taking in, whether it is food, life experiences or thoughts.

Ayurveda holds that many of our diseases start with the accumulation of toxins (ama) in the body. This sludge builds up when our metabolic fire is unable to burn what we are putting into the body. Our metabolism slows down, or gets dampened, when we throw junk food on our fire. If you drink a lot of ice water, you are dampening your fire. If you eat a lot of processed food, leftovers, or canned and frozen foods, you dampen your fire. And whatever is not cleanly digested hangs around in the system and forms a sludge. With time, this sludge gets harder and harder to move. This is why we do cleanses. Cleanses help move ama. If you notice you have a few of these symptoms, and they tend to be chronic, it may be a sign that your metabolic fire is weak.
