In Ayurveda it is always said that all diseases start in the gut. This 5000 year old medical system advocates that optimal digestion is key to overall health and well-being. A sub-optimal digestion capacity leads to reduced nutrient absorption, excess waste and reduced ability to dispose of waste which in turn leads to accumulation of toxins in the body. Over time, this leads to diseases in the digestive system or elsewhere as toxins circulate throughout the body. Depending on the type of toxins and where they accumulate in the body we develop different diseases.
This is why Ayurveda has always focused on ensuring that digestion works at its optimal level at all times and has established dietary and lifestyle habits to maintain optimal digestion over time. Additionally, Ayurveda recognises that we are all different and hence tailors the treatment plan to recover and maintain optimal digestion for each individual.
As opposed to modern medicine, Ayurveda’s diagnosis starts with small signs and symptoms such as being bloated after eating a specific food or having gas after eating pulses. In Ayurveda these are signs that the digestion is starting to falter and, if left untreated, may lead to more serious conditions over time.
In today’s world of fast food, eating on the go, snacking at any time, readymade meals, constant travel and psycho-emotional stress (not to mention modern diet regimes) there are plenty of factors that put strain on our ability to digest food. These diets and lifestyle slowly erode our ability to digest as we constantly give our bodies foods that are either difficult to digest and/or have lifestyles that put strain on our digestion.
At the AYURVEDIC PRACTICE we focus on addressing digestive disorders and helping optimise your capacity to digest. We do this through personal consultations and personalised diet and herbal preparations. We have follow-up consultation every 2-3 weeks to closely monitor the evolution of symptoms and adjust the treatment if necessary.
If you have a digestive disorder whether its mild or more severe, do give Ayurveda a try and most likely you’ll be surprised, just like we were when we tried Ayurveda, on how much it helped our symptoms and your overall wellbeing.
