Prevention: a conversation with Dr. Natalie Geary, MD

About the Event
Strong immunity is a product of good digestion. Two primary forces are at work within the digestive system: Ojas, that vital energy, is concentrated in the heart chakra, and is the product of complete and balanced digestion. Ama is the toxic by-products that result from incomplete digestion. It is the digestive impurities caused by eating hard-to-digest foods or by following unhealthy eating habits. Ama therefore compromises immunity and health.
At the foundation of immune maintenance is Agni, or digestive fire. When Agni or digestive fire strong, the body metabolizes the food efficiently, and Ama (waste) has much less chance to accumulate. Ayurveda therapy focuses on kindling the Agni, the digestive fire of the body to digest toxins ensuring optimal physical and mental wellbeing.
Here we are now, in the midst of COVID, in need of some remedies and immune boosts that are more accessible from home. Whether you are feeling run down or just wanting to maintain strength and balance, it helps to incorporate an Ayurvedic regimen at home to help remove Ama, prevent its build-up and to boost your immune system.
