1. Ama assessment

Ama is a crucial concept in the Ayurvedic system of medicine, as it is a toxic substance that is produced in the body as a result of poor digestion and metabolism. When there is a low digestive fire in the gastrointestinal system or at a cellular or tissue level, excessive ama can accumulate and obstruct the channels in the body, leading to various health issues.
Ama has a stubborn nature, and its toxins can stick to the intestinal tract, clog arteries, and penetrate deeper into skin cells and subtle channels of the mind. Ayurvedic practitioners consider Ama as the key causative factor of all diseases and health conditions, collectively referred to as Amaya.
If left untreated, Ama can weaken the immune system and affect the relationship between the body and mind in the long run. Therefore, it is important to address Ama by improving digestion and metabolism to prevent the accumulation of toxins in the body.
The concept in Ayurveda is that if treated in early stages, it is possible to interfere with the degenerative, inflammatory and other progressive pathologies for early prevention of disease.

Ayurveda, a healthcare system that focuses on individualization and a person-centric approach, places great importance on assessing Agni – your digestive power. By understanding your Agni, Ayurvedic practitioners can offer tailored dietary recommendations, lifestyle advice, and therapeutic interventions. There are four types of digestive power: Mandagni (weak), Vishamagni (irregular), Samagni (regular), and Tikshnagni (intense). Your Agni status can vary depending on factors such as your individual constitution, age, and seasonal rhythm. Therefore, accurately evaluating your Agni from an Ayurvedic perspective is crucial. Moreover, Agni is essential from a therapeutic standpoint as the nature of drugs, dosage, and routes of administration are all dependent on the strength of your Agni. By understanding your Agni, you can take control of your digestive health and optimize your overall well-being.
