Agni, Ama and Ojas in Perfect Health

11 Sep 2016   Shanti Gowans

The most cutting-edge medical experts now agree that the most powerful medicine of the future is simple and available to everyone: the foods you eat each day, which have the power to renew your body, revitalize your health, and even reverse the aging process. Your body tomorrow equals what you put in today. 

Every single cell in your body renews itself within a 2-year span. This means that your entire body is literally brand-new every two years or less, and when you change your nutrition, you  help build a brand new healthier, stronger, and younger body.   

The disconcerting news is that many people restrict themselves to eating only piles of green vegetables or solely raw foods in order to build a stronger, healthier, younger new body and still do not get all of the nutrients they need. There are far simpler solution to start protecting yourself and transforming your entire body in just days, and multivitamins are not the answer! Real, raw, and organic foods and superfoods can provide the fuel the human body needs to help rebuild a healthier version of itself. You prevent nearly every health problem or condition you face through foods and superfoods. However, there are dozens of so-called "superfoods" in the marketplace and unfortunately, many have no track record of verifiable success, no real-life case studies of real people who have experienced real results in improving real conditions.

If you desire perfect health, it is crucial to optimise your digestive fire, known as agni, and to do that, you need to eliminate the toxcity, or ama stored in the body and focus on producing your essential life energy, which is known as Ojas, a Sanskrit term meaning ‘vigour’.

Ama can be threatening because it can cause the body to give way to several diseases. Signs of Ama in the body include: 
- You find it difficult to to get out of bed
- Your skin looks tired and sallow
- Your breath is bad and your tongue is coated
- Your body feels heavy
- Your appetite is dull
- Your digesiton is sensitive
- Your elimination is sluggish
- You experience fatigue, spaciness
- Pain is generalised
- You have difficulty realising your intentions
- You feel depressed
- You have increased susceptibility to infections

Ojas is the pure and subtle substance that is extracted from food that has been completely digested. Ojas circulates throughout the bodily tissues and heart, sustaining the physical self, bringing clarity to the mind and balancing the emotions.

Signs of strong ojas in your system include:
- You feel rested upon awakening
- Your skin has a healthy glow
- You have clean breath and pink tongue
- Your body feels light, regardless of its weight
- You enjoy a strong appetite
- You feel centered throughout the day
- Your digestion is strong without bloating
- Your body feels strong and pain free
- You feel energised and enthusiastic
- Your mind is clear
- You rarely get sick
