You Are What You Digest

Imbalanced Digestion

 How do I know my digestion

is out of Balance?

Imbalanced Digestion

Many of us (myself included) have experimented with no-carb diets, high protein diets, juice cleanses, pre-cooked meals, frozen dinners. The list of fad diets and quick fix weight solutions is endless. And while some of these programs do deliver on their promise of trimming waistlines or “convenient” meal planning to suit our hectic schedules, in the long run they all have one thing in common: they are pushing our bodies and brains towards a permanent state of imbalance.

Our bodies speak to us to let us know when this is happening so it’s likely that you are experiencing a range of mild, moderate or even severe symptoms. We have come to accept a number of symptoms as part of our ‘’’normal’’ bodily experience, but they are in fact signs of imbalances which need addressing.  

Some of these symptoms include: 

  • Digestive problems of all sorts: bloating after eating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, burping throughout the day, indigestion, heartburn and reflux.

  • Waking up in the morning feeling groggy and foggy

  • Insomnia and difficulty sleeping

  • Lethargy

  • Premenstrual syndrome

  • Dizziness

  • General feeling of discomfort

  • Excessive mind activity

  • Fear and anxiety

  • IBS

 

Through an Ayurvedic approach, we can begin to reverse the damage caused by such commonly accepted symptoms.

Every meal you eat becomes an opportunity to help your body heal, every ingredient becomes an opportunity to help your system cleanse itself, and every step in the right direction will take you closer to a state of balance and harmony.
