    An Ayurvedic cleanse focuses on resetting that digestive fire, allowing it to rest and strengthen.
    The detoxifying nature also supports the body’s own natural mechanisms to remove built up toxins
    from the body.

    1. The best thing you can do is*drink plenty of luke warm water. Regular consumption of water will
    give your body the liquid and lubrication required to flush out the harmful toxins and waste
    from the body in a natural manner.

    2. Eat more of fibrous food which will help to clean your colon. Fibres improve bowel movement
    and make the stool soft, eg. Flax seed and*oats, beans, peas, rice, barley, citrus, strawberry and
    apples. Foods high in insoluble fibre include whole wheat, rye, brown rice, barley, cabbage,
    beets, carrots, Brussels, sprouts, turnips,*cauliflower*and apple (with skin).

    3. Chlorophyll found in green foods such as alfalfa, wheatgrass, barley grass, spirulina and blue-
    green algae cleanses and heals the digestive tract.

    5. Eat yogurt to keep the colon healthy. Being a probiotic food, yogurt, will introduce*“good”
    bacteria into the gut that promote digestion.

    6. Aloe vera*juice can be used to treat a myriad of conditions, including improving digestion,
    helping to detox the body, and treating skin conditions. It can be an important all-natural
    supplement to a healthy lifestyle when used correctly.*

    7. There are many plants in ayurveda which helps in colon cleansing - Aloe Vera, Haritaki, Triphala
    which are well known for their detoxification and laxative properties.

        Indigestion — also called dyspepsia or an upset stomach — is a general term that describes discomfort in your upper abdomen. Indigestion is not a disease, but rather some symptoms you experience, including abdominal pain and a feeling of fullness soon after you start eating

        There are some home remedies that help to clean the digestive system

        Small Indian gall nuts (Bala Haritaki) : 100 gm (Fry, pound and make powder)
        Somph seeds : 20 gm (Fry and make powder)
        Rock salt (Saindhava lavanam) : 10 gm
        Method Of Preparation and Usage :
        Mix all the three and store in a bottle. Take half spoon with water after meals.

            Digestion in Ayurveda

            One of the key concepts in the Ayurvedic understanding of digestion is ‘digestive fire’, the main process for metabolic conversion within the body. Everything that requires heat, light, conversion or transformation is under the control of the element of Agni. Agni’s role is really critical in the total process of digestion. In the context of digestive processes in Ayurveda, Agni Bhuta is called the Jathara Agni. It manifests more specifically in the body as the five sub-doshas of Pitta. Each has a specific metabolic function. Their main function is responsible for digestive ability and appetite.

            Yoga Asanas often target the abdominal muscle and the diaphragm, and thereby have a strong beneficial impact on the digestive system. This is especially true of those asanas classified as cultural.

            Vomitting, Cholera, Indigation etc, are coming under Diseases of the digestive system and can be easily treated through Tulsi.
