Ayurveda is the science of life, and it is the best treatment for metabolic problems. In Ayurveda, metabolic disorders are referred to as agnivaishamya (problems in digestion, absorption). Excess or inappropriate digestion and absorption occur as a result of vitiation of digestive fire, which can occur owing to doshic imbalance. This condition arises as a result of blockage in the separate channels of metabolism, resulting in sickness.
Internal herbal medicinal formulations, together with proper nutrition regimes, physical activities, and soothing exterior therapeutic modalities that remove channel blockages and purify the body and internal organs, clearly demonstrate the repair of digestive fire in Ayurveda.
