Good to find!
Very inspired and useful your site. It helps me a lot at this moment because for some time I have had some disorders that I have not been able to bring back to normal through the variants of classical natural medicine. Since 2001 I have been a vegetarian and have been adopting natural medicine for some time, because I gave up allopathic medicine for about 6 years.
My story is that 6 years ago, when I changed my country of residence, from the person who digested everything and anything at any time, and had an impeccable intestinal transit, I ended up with chronic bloating and constipation.
Recently I went to an Ayurvedic consultation and I have an imbalance with Vata double accentuated and Kapha level one accentuated & # 8230, that is Vata enlarged more, and Kapha enlarged a little so that I don't understand anything anymore !! As a typology they are predominantly Pitta.
I thought I was allowed to polenta, because it's corn, but now I find it contraindicated. I no longer understand anything. Help! Can you enlighten me? And do you have any specific recommendations for these disorders?

Hi Dana and thank you! Your story is not unusual at all. Moving to another country involves some very big transformations that the body signals to us through its intelligence. Assuming you continued with the same type of diet as at home (although I doubt it is possible), the very fact that you changed the source of vegetables and fruits makes a big difference. For example, if our tomatoes from Romania, as they are with pesticides (taken from the market, like the ones from the supermarket, I avoid them like a stingray), I feel ok, when I ate tomatoes in Italy I was instantly full of bugs. The same goes for potatoes and even carrots. So & # 8220change the place, change the luck & # 8221 is very valid, although this saying has many other hidden meanings. Then it is very possible to have entered (astrologically speaking) another major planetary period, one less favorable to health.
But beyond these aspects, your problems indicate a low, weak Agni, hence the inability to digest food (and I do not mean that the food still goes down the stomach, but the body's ability to extract the necessary nutrients), so that & # 8220sympathetic & # 8221 issues arise such as constipation and bloating.
To be honest, I have never heard of such a result after an Ayurvedic consultation, but it seems that Vata and Kapha are upset. Just because you are a Pitta does not mean that you cannot have Vata or Kapha imbalances. I recommend you avoid everything that contains yeast, completely. Do not mix freshly made food with that prepared on other days. Do not eat raw foods with cooked food or cold food with hot food at the same table. You will notice significant changes in your condition. Also, add spices such as ginger (fresh), coriander, jeera, turmeric (musai!) And fennel, cardamom and cinnamon, even fresh green mustard or chilli, prepare or buy spice mixes (Masalas) and your life will be much more pleasant than before.
I also recommend that after about half an hour & # 8211 an hour after the main meal to drink a cup of Chai or Mint Chai and you will see what excellent digestion and evacuation you will have!

Yammi! It went great with & # 8220Tasteful A-la-Hindi & # 8221. I admit that I did not add garlic. I found it too fragrant :) Thank you.
