There is such a frenzy out there these days about WHAT and what NOT to eat.

It’s kind of a dilemma.

Should it be this many calories, those vitamins, and minerals, or should I just stop eating carbs? Maybe I should according to the Atkins diet, do Paleo or turn straight Vegan? But then, research shows that oatmeal is supposed to be good for the heart, so maybe I should be eating that. Or maybe I should just give up red meat. Everyone says its bad for ya!!!

Are you confused too? I was for a long time myself. It just seemed like such a jungle of information that was impenetrable. There must be an easier way to understand what’s good for me. And there is. I found the answer in the form of Ayurvedic Medicine.

Ayurveda never says Yes or No to anything, but it explains Why and How.


One of the simple answers I can give to the “What and What not to eat” dilemma from the Ayurvedic perspective is: AMA tells it all! Not Amma as in the hugging mother but Ama is the Sanskrit word for toxins. If what you eat creates toxins in your body, the substance/food is either not for you, you are eating it in a way that your body can’t digest or you are eating it at the wrong time of day.

You might be asking yourself, how in the world would I know I have toxins in my body? That’s easy. You don’t need to get your blood drawn or get expensive testing. You just need to train your awareness. 90% of ailments can be prevented or reversed if you just become aware, read your body’s signal and change your habits. Your body is speaking like a book all the time.

Here are some toxin indicators:


  • Stinky armpits
  • Foul smelling body odor
  • Smelly poop
  • Sticky poop
  • Having to use lots of toilet paper
  • Sharp smelling pee
  • Mood swings
  • Feeling stiff or grouchy in the AM
  • Food cravings
  • Bad breath
  • Generalized pain in the body
  • Coating on the tongue

Got any of that? If so, ama is present and something that you are eating isn’t doing well for you no matter what the research says.
