Food intolerances

Food intolerances

When eating turns into punishment.

“Immediately after eating I get very tired.” “My heart begins pounding shortly after I eat.” “I often feel nauseous after meals.”

This or a similar experience is what people report with regard to their excruciating complaints caused by food intolerances.

What seem to be normal foods create nausea, cramps in the gastrointestinal tract, vomiting or diarrhoea. A distended stomach and bloating are frequent side effects. The burdened digestive tract can also cause heart palpitations, a drop in blood pressure or an irregular heartbeat.

At first these symptoms are caused only by a few foods. If left untreated, however, the number of foods increases – a path of suffering begins in which those affected can tolerate fewer and fewer foods.

What is the Vedic medicine point of view on food intolerances?

According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, food intolerances start with the loss of natural balance.

Metabolic residues develop continuously due to improper lifestyle. In the case of food intolerances, toxins (in Ayurveda called “Ama”) accumulate in the digestive tract. The bowel loses its ability to break down certain foods into their most basic components. Gases in the intestines are created due to the products of decay. This weakens healthy bowel activity even further. It’s a vicious circle.

In Ayurveda every patient is different and so each person’s food intolerance varies. The Ayurvedic approach at our Centre is holistic.

What is the significance of that?

Vedic medicine offers different methods of treatment. After an in-depth medical diagnosis at our Centre, a comprehensive treatment plan is individually tailored for each patient with food intolerances or food allergies.

An increasing number of patients experience
that conventional therapies alone no longer suffice.

They recognize that healing must take place on all levels. In the case of food intolerances, for example, an emphasis on elimination of toxins as well as balancing of beneficial nutrition can be recommended. It is important to bring all natural regulatory principles back into harmony. Nutritional recommendations and helpful exercises, as well as specific herbal mixtures tailored according to your needs, support a health-conscious lifestyle. In this way, your natural self-healing abilities can re-establish healthy functioning of your digestive organs.
