How Ayurveda Treats Digestive Disorders
It is well known in Ayurveda and is, in fact, one of the cornerstones of the science that proper digestion is the key to overall good health. Ama (a toxin) is caused by improperly or inadequately digested food, which is absorbed and stored in the body. Ama could also be mental affliction, due to various negative thoughts and stresses, which in turn have a significant effect on your digestive system.
This stored Ama affects the secretion of various digestive juices. This leads to low Agni (Agni is your digestive metabolism), an impaired Digestive metabolism; precipitating further production of Ama, which sets in motion a vicious cycle of production and storage of Ama.
Ama blocks and clogs the intestines and other channels within the body, The development and production of ama has many causes, for example ingesting foods which are incompatible will directly affect your agni due to the toxins or ama created by these poorly digested foods. A symptom of the existence of Ama in the large intestinal tract, small intestinal tract or stomach is the formation and development of various digestive disorders within the body.
