After eating do you...

Author: Linda Sinden   Date Posted:4 August 2021 

Did you know that a good indicator of wellbeing is feeling fully satisfied and light after eating! How close are you to this ideal?

Attention is often given to the quality of our food. Ayurveda explains that the strength of our digestive fire ‘agni’ is also very important. When our digestive fire ‘agni’ is burning brightly and steadily, food is digested efficiently, allowing nutrients to be transported to the cells of the body effectively and supporting your production of Ojas. Ayurvedic texts explain that ojas is the basis of one’s physical strength, immunity, clarity of perception, happiness, enlightenment and longevity. 

If however, your agni is weakened through improper eating habits, lack of activity or unhealthy daily routine then digestion becomes impaired and impurities or toxins  from incomplete digestion accumulate.  Ayurveda has a name for this toxic residue, it is called Ama, and it is considered to be a root cause of disease. When agni is at a normal level, it burns up ama and creates ojas, upholding a state of balance throughout the entire system.


Your Winter Needs
During Winter agni can become irregular or changeable due to the influence of Vata dosha which dominates at this time. This can lead to a build up of impurities from partial or incomplete digestion and reduced production of Ojas that then reduces immune strength making you more susceptible to catching a virus or bacterial infection. Therefore to protect your Agni and your health during Winter consider taking Digest Plus after meals and Digest Tone 2 tablets 1  hour before bed. See how they help...
