Conscious TV

September 28, 2020

Spring is a great time to renew our body and balance our digestive fire. A time when digestion becomes slow and each person manifests it according to their Ayurvedic constitution.

If you are Vata you will notice more gas, Pitta will not get rid of the feeling of acidity and Kapha will have heaviness and some nausea.

The secret of a good digestion increases the digestive fire (Agni) which is the power that each one of us has to "metabolize" life. In spring the digestive fire (Agni) begins to decrease progressively, reaches its lowest point during the summer, and rises again in autumn reaching its highest point in the coldest months of the year, winter.

For this reason during the summer we eat less and we crave fresh and light meals. Being ourselves part of nature and these changes that occur, it is important to seek health and wellness through Ayurveda. A lifestyle based on this wisdom, the ancestral, the connection with mother Earth that allows the alignment of our inner nature with the environment around us.

In Ayurveda the most important factor for optimal digestion is the proper functioning of the digestive system. Good digestion is compared to the fire element, called Agni.

It is necessary to recognize that you not only nourish your body through the food you eat, but also through all the information it receives from the environment, through the 5 senses - sight, smell, taste, palate, hearing, touch. This information also needs to be digested and, for this, you have the intellect.

If your digestive system is strong: In combination with the proper intake of food, your body will produce ojas or what is understood as vital energy, the essence of life that nourishes both your body and your mind and influences your health.

When your body produces Ojas:

  • You rarely get sick.
  • You wake up rested at dawn, you are light and energetic throughout the day.
  • You enjoy mental clarity.
  • You have good digestion, absence of discomforts such as heartburn, gas and intestinal blockage.

If your digestive system is weakened - weak digestive fire - your body will produce ama (toxicity) negatively affecting your health and balance.

When your body produces ama:

  • It is because of incomplete digestion of the food you eat and the emotions you experience.
  • These toxins are first formed in the digestive system.
  • The toxins spread through the tissues damaging their function; causing chronic inflammation, allergic reactions and autoimmune diseases.

Conditions that result from having ama or chronic toxicity:

  • Leaky gut syndrome.
  • Intestinal bloating.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome.
  • Gluten sensitivity and celiac disease.
  • Fungal infections.

To reduce toxicity in the body:

  • Use bitter and spicy herbs (include spices abundantly in your meals).
  • Practice fasting between meals, to ensure complete digestion. Make a fast -between one to three days- based on natural fruit and vegetable juices.
  • Drink sips of hot water throughout the day and herbal teas.

Emotional toxicity at the level of the subtle body: mind, intellect and ego.

  • Emotional reactivity.
  • Negative thoughts.
  • Fears / anxiety.
  • Resentment / guilt.
  • Distracted mind.
  • Excessive intellectualization.

To rejuvenate the mind:

  • Encourage good nutrition, rest and balanced physical exercise.
  • Use herbal formulas and spices.
  • Practice meditation.
  • Be conscious of your decisions.
  • Exercise focusing attention on the present.
  • Use conscious breathing.
