STRENGTHENING DIGESTIVE FIRE! Part 1
In Ayurvedic medicine your health is based on strong immunity, which is a product of good digestion, and strong agni which means metabolic fire. Although there are other components, my focus first is to touch base on the root cause of many illnesses which starts in the gut according to Ayurvedic texts. I am excited to share a list of Ayurvedic herbs which help with balancing digestion.
6 years ago I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis. I was sensitive to a lot of foods in the beginning, and found out it had a lot to do with my digestive health, and build up of toxicity in my body. I will share with you below one of the herbs that has helped with my digestive fire.
Slippery Elm: Commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine. It is known to reduce inflammation of the intestinal tract. Slippery Elm soothes inflamed mucous membranes of the bowel and intestines and neutralises excess stomach acids, making it a great remedy for the digestive system. Eases constipation and chronic diarrhea. It is known to treat a variety of ailments such as: colitis, IBS, and Crohn’s.
I am so happy to have discovered this herb for my digestive fire!!
Got my certificate in Ayurveda, from the Ayurvedic Institute in New Mexico. Fascinating to connect to my roots. Ayurveda means "knowledge of life." It also expresses the importance of our connection with nature, and that the consciousness of one person, either positive or negative influences the consciousness of all humanity. We all affect each other. Ayurveda expresses that the loss of harmony today is directly reflected in the disharmony of the physical world such as: decaying quality, increased scarcity of substances necessary to ensure life on Earth. Personally, I tend to be a negative, sceptic, person. But I realised that letting go, being positive, and trusting the universe to take it's course is the path of least resistance. Having resistance creates more resistance. Also, trying not let external situations govern my internal condition. Moreover, possessing gratitude inspires compassion for others and encompasses a less divisive attitude (black or white) + (right or wrong). Divisiveness is an attitude that is part of our capitalistic society which breads fear, and affects the consciousness of all humanity. We all affect each other, so understanding (compassion) rather than comparing (competitiveness) makes us feel as one, and closer to mother nature! Yay Ayurveda!!
