'Ama' - The Trouble Maker

What is Ama?👹 Ama is a Sanskrit word that translates literally to mean things like “unripe,” “uncooked,” “raw,”. • Ama is a toxin that builds up in the body due to an improper diet or lifestyle or pollution. When our ability to digest food becomes impaired, the body can no longer absorb essential nutrients. Then the undigested food lingers in the body, leading to the formation of ama. And according to the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, ama is the root cause of nearly all diseases. 🔥AGNI AND 👹AMA RELATION: Ama is a toxic, disease-causing substance that forms as a result of IMPAIRED AGNI(digestive fire), and that, in turn, destroys Agni.
