We’ve all heard how essential breakfast is for us, but I just came back from a seminar on Ayurvedic medicine with one of the top Ayurvedic practitioners in our country, Robert Svodoba, who made me think twice about this..in certain situations.
As human beings, we ingest food and eliminate the waste. That’s our natual flow. If we don’t eliminate, that means there’s a blockage somewhere in our system. Dr. Svoboda suggested that we should not eat any food until we “eliminate” in the morning. Instead, he recommended to drink ginger tea.
This makes inherent sense to me. If we continue to eat when we’re blocked, aren’t we just adding to the blockage? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.
