Ginger has been also been used for thousands of years for the treatment of numerous ailments, such as colds, nausea, arthritis, migraines, and hypertension.

Indians and Chinese are believed to have produced ginger as a tonic root for over 5000 years to treat many ailments, and this plant is now cultivated throughout the humid tropics, with India being the largest producer. Ginger was used as a flavoring agent long before history was formally recorded. It was an exceedingly important article of trade and was exported from India to the Roman Empire over 2000 years ago, where it was especially valued for its medicinal properties.

Ginger is used in numerous forms, including fresh, dried, pickled, preserved, crystallized, candied, and powdered or ground. The flavor is somewhat peppery and slightly sweet, with a strong and spicy aroma. The concentration of essential oils increases as ginger ages.

  • Fresh ginger sliced  + Hot water 1 cup – for lack of digestion, and  Vata problems 
  • Fresh ginger juice + Brown sugar 1 tsp – for Kapha problems, common cold, and cough

Avoid Indigestion / Adhyashana

Adhyashana is a technical term of Ayurveda, which means eating before digestion of previous food. All the ancient classics describe the ill effects of AdhyashanaCharaka mentioned it as a prime causative factor for Grahani dosha. It is also said that Adhyashana can cause severe and incurable diseases or even death. All these references indicate the importance of Adhyashana as one of the health-destroying factors.

the food which is eaten, while the previous meal is lying undigested in the stomach, immediately provokes all the three Doshas. These aggravated Doshas then produce different kinds of diseases in the body. Repeated meals at irregular intervals are the very cause of Aama production ( free radicle ). Aama decreases the strength of Agni which in turn obstructs the free movement of all three Doshas in the digestive tract and on the other hand spreads in the whole body and blocks the channels of the entire body.

In a research conducted by an Institute in Jamnagar, India,70% of the subjects have revealed that lack of appetite and ingestions were the major pre disposed entity found among the patients with chronic lifestyle and infectious diseases such as fever of unknown origin, general lack of immunity, frequent infections of the chest and respiratory organs and skin diseases.

Adhyashana can be defined as eating within 3–4 h of the previous meal. So a proper light meal has to have at least a break of 4 hrs between each meal even considering snacks and coffee consumption. Drinking a small quantity of hot to warm water at regular intervals is said to have a positive effect on the digestive system hence aiding proper digestion.

Cleanse Free radicles / Ama

Ama iti Ishyath Pachyathe – meaning Ama or the free radicle are the product of indigestion. It is being described in one of the texts of Ayurveda that  “eliminate that which is not wholeness, that which is disrupting, by that which is suitable for the self, using procedures and preparations to restore the self, to re-establish Prakriti (a wholeness — our essential nature) and pacify by that which is conducive to health.”

Ama can also be the one derived by the regular blockage of the free radicles in the deep channels of nutrition or even due to external environmental or idiopathic causes.

The main cause for the formation of Ama is described to be  Pragya aparadh – the mistake of the intellect or the lack of self to understand our Dosha and body types and the capacity of our digestive systems. These very mistakes lead to poor diet, wrong choice of food, wrong eating habits, overeating, unnecessary cravings, emotional eating, and wrong routine.

The feel of laziness, disinterested, with no enthusiasm, lack of orientation, brain fog, lack of clarity, lack of concentration, negative thoughts, which can lead to anxiety and also Psychosomatic diseases such as bloating gut, lazy gut, constipation, IBS, diarrhea and many other diseases related to the Digestive system.

Some of the tips mentioned in  Ayurveda text for cleaning the Ama are as follows :

  • Loving your food with the right ingredient at the right time with the right state of mind or following Satvik food  
  • Avoid emotional eating. overeating, ice-cold food, heavy and sticky food 
  • Ama Pachan (digesting the ama ), by sipping hot water, or using specific spices or herbal preparations
  • Agni Dipan (increasing the digestion ), with use of Lavana Bhasker powder, Cumin powder, Hingwashtaka powder
  • Shodhana or Cleansing with Panchakarma Detox
