What causes Stomach Problems?
Bad digestion is the root of all evil – says Hippocrates. As per Ayurveda, the root cause of all illnesses lies in poor digestion.
Agni is the source of nutrition, awareness and intelligence. There are many manifestations of Agni that affect the body and mind - from the fire of awareness, to the central digestive fire. Ultimately, Agni is the gatekeeper of good health.
Our digestive system (Agni) is like a juicer or a processing machine which results in nutrition and waste. If the Agni is weak, it will lead to less nutrition and more waste. Waste not excreted properly may lead to accumulation of waste in the intestines and toxins in the blood.
