Digestion Issues From Ayurveda Perspectives

Jan 8, 2008
Abdominal bloating, when the abdomen distends and there may be intestinal or abdominal gas, is the cardinal sign of dysfunction of the agni, the digestive fire, and is usually caused by a vata imbalance. In Ayurveda we describe it as the first sign of an imbalance in the "gastrointestinal consciousness." Bloating occurs when the gastrointestinal tract is unable to split food into the smallest particles and release the nourishing enzymes into the system. Also see Indigestion. Follow the appropriate Daily Lifestyle Regimen for your dosha, paying particular attention to your diet and eating

Rocking and Rolling: Sit on the floor and pull both legs up to your chest; interlock your hands over your knees. Roll your body backward and forward, ten times in each direction, keeping your elbows close to your legs.

Eat a light diet of primarily vegetables and rice, or kicharee; the Ten-Day Ginger Treatment recommended. There are several yoga movements that release wind and gases from the body, including toe bending, ankle bending, ankle rotation, hand clenching, wrist bending, leg rotations, and the posture known as Rocking and Rolling.

HERBAL REMEDIES

* Triphala treats the entire digestive tract. Take 1/2 teaspoon triphala mixed with 1/2 cup warm water every evening at bedtime. buy Hingwastak Tablets at www,drhelenthomas.com Take two before each meal until fell bloating relieved.

FIVE-SENSES THERAPIES

* Taste: Emphasize sweet, sour, bitter, and salty foods, spices, and herbs. Consuming the summer churna with a little salt and lemon flakes is an easy way to get all these tastes in the appropriate proportions.

* Smell: Use warm, sweet, and sour essential-oil aromas, such as rose, cloves, cinnamon, basil, and orange.

* Sight: Green and blue are recommended to relieve bloating.

* Hearing: Listen to the midmorning classical music.

Touch: rub the belly clockwise with warm vata oil. Five minutes daily. This is not in place of medical advice. This is ayurveda approach only.
