Agni—The Flame Within
Agni is the Sanskrit name for 'fire'. In Ayurveda, it refers to all the biological fires that govern metabolism in our bodies. However the main one, that we have most control over, is the Digestive Fire.
Think of agni as a fire that consumes your food into its nutrient parts. If your digestive fire is low then you end up with unburnt toxic food residue which your body then has to deal with. The way your agni behaves depends on several factors. Two important factors are the state of your current health and your ‘Dosha’ profile.
Did you know there's such a thing as waking up at the perfect time each morning for your unique constitution (dosha)?
Ayurveda and Yoga both believe that how you wake up, as well as when, is crucial to experiencing a vibrant, stress-free, energised and purposeful day.
So tomorrow morning, before you jump out of bed and dive in to your day (or reach for your phone!), maybe take just 5 minutes to focus yourself.
Making digestion a science and an art
Can these top ten ayurvedic tips help you to feel in tip top shape?
Kapha types may feel too lazy to shop, but the overpowering need for food will soon change that! They are also naturally hoarders, so cupboards will be kept well stocked of goodies. They will choose a large trolley and slowly start moving through the store, no doubt starting with good intentions as they may be on some sort of weight loss programme.
A common pitta request is to 'see the manager'. In their mind there is always someone to blame, someone who’s fault is it. Various suggestions will be put forward. Like 'Why doesn't that staff member who is just talking open another till!’
Shopping for vata types is often not quite that well organised. They will be in a rush and probably hungry, possibly with low blood sugar! In the queue they may be quite fidgety, then they are likely to rush off because they have suddenly remembered something they need.
