IMPORTANCE OF GOOD DIGESTION & METABOILSM TO STAY HEALTHY

IMPORTANCE OF GOOD DIGESTION & METABOILSM TO STAY HEALTHY

           There are lots of books, Magazines, Articles etc. are being published on regular basis regarding the Nutritious, healthy and organic food and being read and practiced by Millions of people all around the world on daily basis but still the chart is rising only in terms of various diseases . Why is this so? 

The whole world is Obsessed by Healthy, Macrobiotic food and Nutritious food but still making a habit of implementing Multi vitamin pills, Pills for calcium, pills for iron , vitamin C etc. in their daily routine . Why? 

If one is eating healthy Nutritious food then why they need additional chemical supplements? 

           People all around the globe are now a days more concerned about their physical condition and thus they are opting for more Nutritional, Healthy and Organic food, but the irony is that even after doing so many things and taking so many precautions the diseases are not controlling ,rather the problems like Gastritis , Liver diseases , GERD ,Peptic and Duodenal Ulcers , Improper metabolism etc are on the augment. 
Many will say that this is all because of Stress, Adulteration of food, Pollutions and other such things which I do completely agree with but the genuine Underlining cause is still missing ! 
The statement that Eat Healthy ,organic and Nutritious food to remain Healthy but alone doing so will not solve the problem or make you healthy. 

The Main Things which nobody teaches or speaks about is - 
1. How to Eat? 
2.When to Eat? 
3.What all the things to follow to have proper Metabolism?

Yes, these are the most important things which we all must and should know otherwise even though you eat the nourishing food that is also not at all going to help you . 
These things might seem to be very simple but these are very Important part for the process of Digestion and metabolism. 
Unless and until one not have good and proper Metabolism nothing is going to help. If a person have proper metabolism then the Proper Digestion and assimilation from the gut will be there and then only he or she will not be deprived of Iron, Calcium or essential Minerals and Vitamins. 
# Aahar Pachan in Ayurveda 
The process of digestion is known as Aahar Pachan in Ayurveda. In Ayurveda, any food (ahar) passes through the following:
�Taste (Rasa)
�Uses (Guna)
�Potency (Veerya)
�Metabolism resultant (vipak), and
�Impact (prabhav)


           It is said that rasas undertake gunas and is undertaken by veerya. This is suppressed by vipak and finally prabhav makes all of them resultant. Therefore, when we consume food, we must take into consideration the fact that our food should have calories needed as per age. Similarly calorie intake during pregnancy and lactation and disease or recuperation should also be considered. Calories must come in balanced form in terms of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. Food is consumed as solids or semi-solids and liquids. Salads must be an important segment of food. Water other than juices and milk is needed and must be pure and adequate. 

# Signs of improper metabolism : 
# Primary Signs :Constipation,Mental dullness,Unexplained fatigue,Bad breath 
# Secondary Signs :Gas,Bloating,Coated tongue,Body odor,Dull skin,High cholesterol , Degenerative diseases 
The main aim of Ayurvedic Aahar Pachan or the digestion process should be such that human beings can achieve the ultimate goal of the science. i.e., maintaining health and treating disease. 
# We observing the inhabitants all around the world in their regular routine. They don�t even have time to eat properly.Mostly they are trying to finish the job of eating while on their way to the office.Today's fast lifestyle habits are : 
1.Just grabbing a piece of Sandwich or burger, pizza or anything and eating while walking to their work or running while eating etc.
2.Watching television or reading newspapers and eating .
3.Not chewing the food properly.
4.Eating either too fast or too slow.
5.Mostly drinking plenty of water just before the food or immediately after the food .
6.Going to sleep immediately after the dinner. And so many other such things.

# Do you know how these habits are damaging your health?


           ~ If you do not chew your food properly, then the proper mixing of saliva with the food will not be there. The Saliva contains an Amylase called Ptyalin which does the partial digestion of carbohydrates in the mouth itself. So if you are not chewing the food properly then automatically the first stage of digestion is incomplete. 

           ~ If you are more focused on reading or watching the television during your meal or not sitting properly and peacefully at one place then automatically the proper secretion of the gastric juices will not be there and again will hamper the process of digestion. 

           ~ Drinking water just before the food will kill the appetite and also immediately after the food will hamper the process of digestion because as per Ayurveda water is Guru guna i.e. Heavy and thus should not be consumed immediately after the food . 

           ~ Going to sleep immediately after the food will cause indigestion and can cause so many problems too. 

           Thus, rather than focusing more on Organic and Nutritional stuff , first try to learn the proper process of eating .Whatever you eat either nutritious or not , food or medicines everything has to be metabolize first and then only it will yield proper effect. 

# What Ayurveda Says : 

           Each person has a certain combination of tridoshas, known as his or her prakruti, and this uniqueness of each individual is a concept which is fundamental in ayurveda. If you went to see an ayurvedic healer, they would probably draw up a specialised eating plan based on the various factors such as age and gender, the doshic tendencies that need to be balanced at a given time, the strength of the body tissues and the digestive fibres, and the level of ama (toxins) in the body. The place where a person lives and the season are also factors that affect dietary dos and don'ts. However, there are some universally applicable principles that are important to follow: 
1. Include the six tastes at every main meal
2. Choose foods by balancing physical attributes
3. Choose foods that are sattvic
4. Opt for whole, fresh, in-season, local foods
5. Rotate menus and experiment with a variety of foods
6. Include spices and herbs in your daily diet

# Follow the rules and good health will surely come your way�not quite. In ayurveda, the way in which you eat is just as important as what. The theories are complex, but here are five introductory guidelines to aid good digestion:

1. Eat sitting down in a settled environment, and maintain a good posture.
2. Stimulate digestion before the meal :Weak digestive fire (agni) may lead to fatigue after eating, so before a full meal try eating a one-inch piece of fresh ginger with a few drops of lemon juice and a pinch of salt. This stimulates the saliva and the digestive enzymes, helping efficient digestion.
3. Avoid cold drinks at meals.
4.Do not skip breakfast and avoid heavy food at night.
5.As far as possible eat fresh food.
6. Make lunch the largest meal of the day.
7. Do not eat after 10p.m.

So Simply eating healthy food will not gives proper results. The way of eating the food is also very important.

* Eat Properly Be Healthy ! This is what we want to say !
