Ayurveda Detox 

Fasting / Gut Health

According to Ayurveda, fasting is a good way of “resetting” the body’s metabolism. Undigested or unmetabolized food, called “Ama” which when accumulated in the body, blocks the body’s micro channels thereby causing several digestive disorders.  

When the channels are blocked, nutrients do not get assimilated properly into the cells and can cause sluggishness, bloating, fatigue, bad breath, constipation etc and other related digestive disorders. 

Depending on your body-type and health condition, Ayurveda recommends occasional detox or fasting but strongly cautions that fasting should be customised based on your body type (Prakriti), your age, lifestyle, seasons, health condition and so on.
