Ama is toxins. A toxin is defined as anything that is poison to the body and can cause disease and/or stress to our organism. When we ingest wrong food, wrong impressions ama can be created in our organism (body & mind). Ama can lodge itself in our tissues and can cause gas, foul breath, malabsorption, just to name a few. You may see a white coating on the tongue, sticky stools and no matter what you eat the food just doesn't seem to be assimilated-you just don't feel right. Do you have any of these symptoms? It may be time to do a spring cleanse-visit your local Ayurvedic practitioner to access your level of ama and to set your digestion straight! If our digestion is strong, then ama can't find a home. Reset your digestion!
