THE PROBLEM OF CONSTIPATION HAS BECOME VERY COMMON THESE DAYS. BEING CONSTIPATED MEANS LACK OF BOWEL MOVEMENTS OR IT HAPPENS LESS OFTEN THAN NORMAL. ALMOST EVERYONE GOES THROUGH IT AT SOME POINT IN THEIR LIFESTYLE.
According to Ayurveda, the root cause of all disease is improper digestion. It is because when our digestive system did not fully break down food and assimilate nutrients, our body starts accumulating this undigested, toxic material that in Sanskrit is called ‘Ama’ which literally means undigested or uncooked. The first stage of any disease is also sometimes called Ama.
Although constipation is not usually serious, you’ll feel much better when your body is back on track. But sometimes due to external negative factors such as stress, strain, adverse weather, inappropriate food and habits not all the food we eat is fully digested formation of Ama takes place.
