Ayurveda Digestion:

Good Digestion - The Cornerstone of Health

According to Ayurveda, digestion is the cornerstone of good health. When our digestion is impaired, our well-being suffers. Even nutrients from the best organic and wholesome foods cannot be extracted if our digestion is not working well. Ayurveda believes that digestion is twofold. It is active in not only in the stomach, but also in the 5 senses. What you see, hear, taste, smell, feel, and think are all digested (or improperly digested) by the body. This digestion of food emotions and thought are important for your well-being. Have you ever felt the effects of being stressed, hurried, angry, or worried?  In these conditions digestion is noticeable affected and this impacts your health considerably. Ayurveda had recognized the importance of the environment in the total health.
 

A Balanced Way of Living

Living in balance creates harmony in the body, mind, and spirit. The most basic principles of Ayurveda include living in balance with nature, and learning to balance our Dosha. Our Dosha or body type: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. 

Balance or rhythms, can be seen in all things of the universe, from the rising and setting of the sun, ebbing and flowing of the tides, to the cycle of the moon. Routines or rhythms in our daily life are also important to the health of your body, and state of your mind, and spirit.

Our modern way of living can often become unbalanced and out of rhythm with nature. Long work hours, not enough sleep , skipped or fast food meals, commuting long distances can leave us little time for a balanced daily routine. Once the body gets out of balance "ama" (toxins) begin to build up. Once they build up to the point of over flow, the disease process begins.

Setting a daily routine is must for a better health. By establishing a healthy daily routine (Dinacharya) ,we are assured that the needs of our natural body rhythms are met, and we become proactive in our own health, and in the prevention of disease.
