Over the last 3 months, I have brought into my life an amazing human being, Alicia Diaz, who is very well versed in the healing arts of Ayurveda. As I take my business, achievements and living life fully very seriously, I have decided to bring her on board to help me reach peak productivity and an ongoing state of balance.
So in this blog post I want to share with you one of the most powerful tip that I have learned from her as I apply it in my daily life so that you can too have can have a taste to live a more fulfilling, productive and enjoyable life.
If you have never heard about the Ayurvedic healing arts, you can check my video interview with Alicia where she actually explains a little bit about it as well as give further tips to help. Anyways back to what I want to share with you…
Over the last few months with Alicia, I have learned about a different and amazing way to looking at health. In Ayurveda, they talk about all different elements in nature, such as air and fire, and how these elements translate into all areas of our lives.
These areas include our health, our relationships, overall well being, etc… One of the most powerful takeaway to me was the Digestive Fire. Typically, my understanding of digestion when it comes to the body is the physical digestion of food to become nutrients for our body to absorb.
However the digestive fire is not just physical but goes way beyond that. I wish I could explain all that as good as Alicia does, but I can’t! So here is why I put up this picture that will help you understand why building this fire inside of us is so very important to your life.
As you can see from the diagram building that fire is extremely important for many diffrent reasons. So the question becomes, how do you kindle that fire then? It is very good question and just last night we were talking how the Ayrurvedic healing arts are so specific to each and everyone one of us. But here are some general guidelines that I am following that can help you with that process.
- Eating with the sun cycles: early morning, noon and evenings
- Reducing toxic built up in the body by having proper food combinations. For example don’t mix milk with bannanas, something which is very popular.
- Adapting and balancing to our enviroment. So if it is cold make sure you balance with warm drinks like ginger (fresh ginger grated, boiled, with a pinch of himalayan salt and raw cane sugar, and a splash of lime). Drink throughout your day.
- Preparing the body to sleep by around 10 pm, where the digestive fire is used to ‘digest’ emotional and all sensory information that occured throughout the day. If you eat late, then this process will be diverted to digesting food. This is why when you kinda stay a bit late, you start to feel hungry and you get a boost of energy because the fire energy which is meant to digest your day is now directed to other areas.
Anyways, these are some of the tips that I wanted to share today. If you are interested in knowing more about the Ayurvedic health systems, which I highly recommend, make sure you watch the video interview that I have with Alicia here.Did you find this blog post valuable?
