Ayurveda: Natural Way Of Healthy Digestion

Date :24-Jun-2019

The hunger towards exploring new tastes is never-ending. Indian food is famous for its toothsome curries, and snacks filled with mouth burning spices and complex flavor pairings.

These taste combinations are unlike anything found elsewhere around the world and ignite a gigantic explosion in the mouth. But the aftermath that awaits us are some crucial digestive problems.

Over 90% of people suffer from everyday digestion problems such as gas, bloating, stomach pain, constipation, heartburn, and fatigue after eating in India. Most of them find it difficult to enjoy the time and find only temporary solutions as a cure. Nature itself provides accurate remedies for all digestive disorders and we call it as Ayurveda.

There are some simple steps that can help us effectively process our foods and burn any previously accumulated toxins. They are:

1. Taking a short walk prior to eating will help to clarify whether hunger is genuine or not. Emotional cravings will dissipate after a walk while true hunger will be enhanced.

2. Drink more water at regular intervals. Take one or two cups of water upon waking and a large glass at room temperature, 20 to 30 minutes before your meal. This will improve the digestive capacity.

3. Take a deep breath just after your meals before moving on to your next activity. This will help the body to attain a level of satisfaction.

4. If possible try to have a small cup of lassi (Blend of pure yogurt and water in 1:3 ratio) mixed with a pinch of cumin powder and salt for proper digestion.

5. If meals tend to make you sleepy, a very short walk after a meal can be highly beneficial.

6. Lying on your left side for 5–15 minutes after lunch can help you in improving digestion.

7. Undertaking exercises like yoga and activities associated with it are also suggested.

8. Try a dietary cleansing through different fasting methods once in a week.

9. Following consistent daily routines, meditations and practicing Yamas are also suggested.
