    Improve Digestion, Absorption and Elimination of Your Food With This Easy Little Trick Most People Forget!

    - by Heather

    In my previous post “Are prescriptions the only answer”, I had shared my background with infertility and my decision to take my health into my own hands instead of relying on drugs and fertility treatments.  My road to health started with a consultation with an Ayurvedic nutritionist.

    Ayurveda has been described as the science of life or wisdom of life, and is based on three constitutions which can be determined from different characteristics in your body.  Practices in your life (i.e. foods appropriate for the body) are then recommended based on this constitution.  Ayurveda focuses on removing any imbalances and finding the cause of problems being experienced.

    After filling out a questionnaire (from exercise and  sleep patterns to what I eat and how often I eliminate) and meeting with the Ayurvedic nutritionist; the main take away was that I had significant digestive issues.  I was always experiencing some form of indigestion, whether it was bloating and gassiness, diarrhea or constipation.

    Most nutritionists, raw foodies, etc, will indicate that it’s recommended to have bowel movements 2-3 times per day.  What?  This sounded crazy! I was lucky if I had that many bowel movements each week!  I had talked to my doctor about this in the past, and it was passed off as “my normal”.  Little did I know that I was basically in a chronic state of constipation.  You can only imagine how I felt about this; after all, everyone knows how good it feels after a good poop!
