There is a great emphasis laid on the process of digestion as per the principles of Ayurvedic medicine. When the digestive process is incomplete, a metabolic waste called Ama is generated. This Ama is toxic and is the root cause of disease. So, good digestion is the key to living a healthy life as per Ayurveda. Ama can convert into a highly toxic Amavisha when it stays in the body over long periods of time. Metabolic efficiency is the basis of good health as per the Ayurvedic texts.
Ayurveda attributes the causes of most diseases to the improper digestion and metabolism of food and this is where the primary investigation for any disease starts. The quality of digestion depends on the Agni or digestive fire in the body. So, any problems with Agni needs to be corrected to ensure optimum digestion. Agni is not constant in the body as it varies with the position of the sun in the sky thus being at its strongest at noon and at its weakest at night. This is a good reason to make the midday meal the heaviest and the night meal the lightest. One is advised to eat in an unhurried manner and in a relaxed atmosphere.
Food is ideally to be eaten freshly prepared and warm. Cold and highly processed food is not conducive to the proper digestive process. Being active and getting enough exercise helps the food to get digested easily. Natural urges such as the need to burp, belch or pass wind should not be ignored.
The Vata Dosha is the Dosha that is responsible for movement in the body which includes the movement of the contents of the digestive tract and bowels. Excessive Vata Dosha causes flatulence, gas, and bloat and this is the Dosha that is the primary cause for digestive problems. Pitta Dosha imbalances can cause drying up of the bowel contents and constipation. Kapha causes excessive mucus which is also a problem for digestion.
When the metabolism of the body is maintained at its best function, there is no metabolic waste or Ama formed and this makes the body healthier.
In Western medicine, the process of digestion is viewed as dependent on the optimum functioning of the digestive system and the allied organs such as the gall bladder, pancreas, and the liver. It is also dependent on the type of food that is consumed.
Some digestive troubles are caused by infections of the stomach lining. Antibiotics are used to treat stomach problems that are caused by such infections.
Inflammation of the stomach lining is treated with medication to both prevent damage to the lining as well as reduce the pain. When a person has chronic acidity it can also cause allied problems such as acid reflux and heartburn.
When a person suffers from chronic indigestion it impacts the ability of the body to optimally absorb all the nutrients from the food. It also causes other problems such as gas, flatulence, bloat, heartburn, diarrhoea, constipation and even pain that compromises the person’s ability to go about their daily routine.
Autoimmune diseases such as sarcoidosis and Crohn’s disease also cause digestive problems.
While a small quantity of gas is naturally present in all digestive tracts, excessive gas can cause bloat and discomfort. Sometimes it can cause pain and be accompanied by constipation or diarrhoea.
IBS or irritable bowel syndrome is a condition where the digestive process is improper and the symptoms fluctuate between constipation and diarrhoea.
When the large intestine has problems such as diverticulosis or piles, it also impacts the person’s digestion.
Western medicine advises that a person eat a well-balanced diet with less processed foods and more fiber to ensure good gut health.
Adequate intake of water is important for the digestive process.
One should avoid the excessive consumption of tea, coffee, carbonated drinks, and alcohol to avoid stressing the digestive system.
Some medications have unwelcome side effects on digestion and should be investigated if one is having digestive troubles.
Foods that are known triggers of digestive issues should be avoided.
Metabolic disorders are caused by the disruption of the process by which the body uses the energy that is derived from the food you eat.
Some metabolic disease causes problems with the mitochondria and impacts the way the body uses energy on a cellular level.
Other metabolic problems affect the way the body process carbohydrates, fats or amino acids.
Any malfunction in the organs such as the liver or the pancreas can also cause metabolic disorders such as diabetes.
