Our body’s digestive ability is like a fire that converts the food we consume into tiny molecules that our body absorbs.
One of the most important fundamental principles of Ayurveda - along with balance - is that of agni or the digestive fire. According to ayurveda, the secret to a healthier and happier life depends on how perfectly we digest, absorb, and utilize the nutrients from the food we consume. Food is not only a source of energy for our body, but it also needs energy to perform all the necessary biochemical reactions involved in the process.
If this digestive energy is not up to the mark or disturbed, then various stomach-related issues including diarrhea, stomach aches, and constipation may persist. Not only this, but other generalized issues like migraine headaches, lethargy, irritability, disturbed sleep, and reduced immunity will likely also arise.
