I had never believed in the ancient science of Ayurveda before I got personal healing. The doctors can know the state of your body, the ailments that exist and also the health challenges that you might face in future without any tests and without the patient uttering a single word. It is done through pulse diagnosis only.
Ayurveda is not just used for curing diseases but also for preventing them from occurring in the first place. There are some lifestyle recommendations that if followed can give us miraculous health benefits. Here is a little insight about what Ayurveda has got to say about drinks.
Firstly, drinks and food should not be mixed. Well, before I knew this, I was in a habit of taking tea or coffee with my breakfast. I still do sometimes. It is recommended not to drink anything half an hour before and one hour after meals.
Another recommendation is about food temperature. The best temperature for food is close to room temperature. Consuming too hot or too cold food items is not good for digestion. Of course we cook food and eat it warm most of the time. But there are certain dishes that we are used to and taste better straight from the refrigerator.
Cold milk, juice, salads and ice creams extinguish the digestive fire and consuming them on a regular basis can disrupt the digestion process. Ayurveda also shows red light to ice cold water, smoothies, shakes etc.
Asking for normal room temperature water at some places does turn a few eyeballs towards us, but aren't we already used to that by now?
If you already have problems like stomach cramps, bloating feeling after meals or general indigestion, try this for a few days and see the difference for yourself.
