Angi (Fire) – The Power Of Digestion
‘Agni’ (Sanskrit) represents your internal fire & in Ayurveda is vital to your health, especially digestion.
However, Agni controls more than just your physical digestion. It also helps you digest emotions.
The state of your digestion affects your mind.
In fact, research has found that 95% of your Serotonin (one of your happy hormones) is found in your bowels.
Because of this, your gut is literally your second brain. This second brain of yours contains 100 million neurons, which is more than you have in your spinal cord or (PNS) peripheral nervous system.
A healthy gut means a healthy mind.
When your digestion is working well, you experience confidence, joy, patience, logic, mental clarity, and enthusiasm.
When your Agni is off-balance, you may suffer from anxiety, depression, impatience, indecisiveness, confusion, withdrawal, or disease depend on your Ayurvedic Dosha (Vata, Pitta, Kapha).
I encourage you to dive deeper & explore your Agni.
Witness the effects your digestion, be it physical or mental & note small changes you can begin today, to balance the fire within you.
