Life is fast and oftentimes we are stressed, hungry, and reaching for whatever food is in sight just so we can make it to the end of the day. Bad food choices, negative thinking, stress, and a fast-paced lifestyle lead to digestive imbalances. With time, micro-imbalances lead to macro- imbalances and you are left with ama: a rotten byproduct of bad digestion. When this sludge builds up, it prevents our belly from getting the good nutrients out of the healthy food we are eating. Ayurveda views ama as the single most toxic threat to our radiant health.
Getting rid of ama is like doing a body-temple sweep-out that cleans out physical toxins, as well as old emotion and mind states. By cleaning up the belly, you will also clear out long- stored emotions and thought patterns in the body. Boosting your digestion and getting perfect poo can lead to the following radical health boosters:
- better immune function,
- cleared sinuses,
- clearer skin,
- better sex drive,
- more energy,
- less excess belly fat,
- less burp-fart-burp-itis,
- mental clarity,
- calmer nerves and, of course,
And how do we do this? By paying attention to what we put into our bodies.
