Ayurveda recommends enhancing the digestive fire through a correct diet, proper physical exercise, internal herbal formulations, panchakarma (detoxification) and rasayana (rejuvenation) therapies. Metabolic disorders are due to Agni Vaishamya (improper digestion, metabolism and absorption). Agni Vaishamya occurs due to the disturbance of agni, the digestive fire. Causes that contribute to the vitiation of agni include improper diet and unhealthy daily routine and lifestyle. Vitiation of agni leads to the production of ama (toxic, morbid substance in the body), doshic imbalances, disturbance in the tissue metabolism, and depletion of ojas, tejas and/or prana. As conditions progress further, blockages in the individual channels of circulation (srotas) occur, leading to the development of various metabolic disorders such as obesity, diabetes, thyroid disturbances.
