Gut or the gastrointestinal system, also referred to as the gastrointestinal tract, digestive system, digestive tract, is a group of organs that includes the mouth, oesophagus, stomach, pancreas, liver, gallbladder, small intestine, colon, and rectum. The primary goal of an Ayurvedic gut cleanse is to remove toxins (ama) from the body and correct the digestive fire.
What is toxin or Ama? The consumed food first gets digested in Amashaya (stomach) by the action of Digestive fire. Because of improper diet, following unhealthy lifestyles causes weak or impaired digestive fire (in the gut). Due to diminished digestive fire (Agni), the first product of digestion, namely Rasa remains in the Amashaya (stomach) for a long time and undergoes fermentation which produces toxins(ama) in the gut.
Over time ama tends to accumulate in the system and block the channels of the body, causing a variety of conditions. When we talk about detoxification in Ayurveda, we are referring to the loosening and elimination of these toxins, or Ama in the body. Removing the Ama is the first step of the healing process, though Ayurveda also recognizes the importance of rejuvenating the systems and bringing them back into balance.
At FMH Clinic, each individual is analysed constitutionally (using AI) followed by proper Ayurvedic disease diagnosis and then we provide personalized herbal mix, that is unique to each individual depending upon their body type (dosha), ama load. Ama load is the amount of accumulated ama or toxins in the body calculated through the AI assessment.
