One of the Ayurvedic pillars of health is digestive fire, called agni. When in balance, agni is considered Sama Agni. If digestion becomes too intense or out of balance, it may become Tikshna Agni. In this situation, Pitta’s heating qualities, made up of fire and water, can lead to excessive hunger, thirst, burning sensations, acid reflux, and an inability to tolerate hunger, leading to irritability, “low blood sugar”, or feeling “hangry!”.

Join Vaidya Dinesh Gyawali to learn more about the signs of Tiksha Agni and Ayurvedic tips and dietary recommendations to enliven Sama Agni.

When we want to strengthen immunity, the digestive system may not be the first place we think to start. However, in Ayurveda, digestion is considered to be the root of good health, including strong immunity. What we eat, how we eat, and the efficiency of our metabolism can actually determine whether we catch whatever is going around or maintain resilient health.
