Useful Tips to Aid Digestion

Eat ½ tsp fresh grated ginger with a pinch of rock salt before each meal to stimulate Agni (digestive fire)

Salt also aids digestion and helps to retain water

Ghee stimulates Agni and improves digestion

Small sips of warm water during a meal will aid digestion and absorption of food. Do not drink iced water as it slows Agni and digestion. Indeed ice water should not be taken under most circumstances as it is too shocking for the system.

Proper chewing is essential to good digestion; ensuring good gets thoroughly mixed with saliva.

Ideally one should fill the stomach with one-third food, one-third water and one third should be empty.
