The Hot Belly Diet: How Digestion Links to Overall Health

hotbellydietWe’re just a day away from the launch of Dr. Suhas G. Kshirsagar‘s latest accomplishment, The Hot Belly Diet. In an approach that combines both Eastern and Western medical perspectives, Dr. Kshirsagar, an internationally recognized Ayurvedic physician, demonstrates the direct relationship between one’s diet and its effects on both the mind and body.

The diet is a 30-day plan to reset your metabolic health, broken into three phases. At the root of Dr. Kshirsagar’s approach is the Ayurvedic concept that digestion is the foundation of proper health.

Specifically, he discusses the concept of ama: the concept of anything that exists in a state of incomplete transformation. In particular, it is claimed to be a toxic byproduct generated due to improper or incomplete digestion, otherwise referred to as one’s “digestive sludge.” The ama antagonizes weight loss, provokes hormonal imbalances, and ultimately triggers inflammation—the root cause of virtually all disease.

To evaluate one’s digestive and overall well-being, the tongue can be viewed as a detailed health map. Much like reflexology, all the organs and the entire body can be located on specific regions of the tongue. As a mirror of the body’s digestive system, the tongue can reflect what minerals and vitamins may be deficient and can reveal the health of other various organs in the body.

The Hot Belly Diet is a unique approach to both weight loss and achieving ultimate optimized health.
