How We Lose Good health
- By Tim Larson, Ph.D.
It is important to understand how people lose good health. It generally doesn't happen suddenly like it does with injuries or an accident. We lose our good health over a number of years and there are many signs of this along the way. But most people tend to ignore the signs.
There are continuous assaults on us by internal, food-delivered,
and environmental toxins. We can be driven out
of balance by stress, repressed emotions, inappropriate
diet or lifestyle, insufficient rest, environmental toxins,
climate or seasonal changes.
There are several important things we need to learn in order to understand how we lose our health.
First, it is important to understand that the disease process does not happen overnight. There are actually six stages of disease and taking action to restore balance to our system in the earlier stages can stop the disease process before symptoms of disease even appear. An online web application can help you check for the early signs of disease so that you can catch it before it catches you!
It is also important to understand the very important role that proper digestion has on our health. We need to properly digest our food so that our body can assimilate the nutrients to replenish our tissues and keep our immune system strong. Our digestive fire, agni, plays a significant role in proper digestion and assimilation of our food.
When the body's digestive fire, agni, becomes impaired, foods will not be completely digested, leaving a sticky, white, foul-smelling residue, which accumulates in the colon. This toxic residue is referred to as ama. The accumulated ama makes it more difficult for the colon to extract energy from digested food.
If neglected, ama can move from the digestive tract and enter lymph channels and blood vessels, obstructing their proper flow. Ama moves through the circulatory system, traveling to weak areas of the body, eventually causing disease. If there is a white coating on your tongue in the morning when you wake up, it is an indication of ama accumulation in your system.
