Any of these complaints are a sign that your digestive health is suffering. Luckily it can be fixed with the wisdom of Ayurveda and Yoga Therapy!
Digestive health is key to a healthy long life. Without good digestion our body can not function properly or form strong, stable, resilient tissues. Poor digestion creates an environment where disease can set in at an early age. Both Classical Ayurveda and Yoga Therapy point to poor digestion as the underlying cause for nearly all disease but especially: heart disease, diabetes, metapolic disorders, auto-immune diseases, skin conditions, mental health issues, and of course digestive problems.
