School of Ayurvedic Diet & Digestion
Are you prone to a problem with 'Dental Surgery or Missing Teeth'?
Find your imbalances and create a diet for your Digestion by taking the free digestion quiz.
Dental surgery is a medical procedure performed on the teeth and jaw bone. Missing teeth can significantly impact your ability to chew food. Improperly chewed food can sit undigested in the GI tract, leading to gas, bloating, and the formation of digestive toxins (ama).
Eat foods that require less chewing. If you have difficulty chewing, and cannot chew foods properly, make sure food is easy to digest. Foods that are more difficult to digest, such as meat, nuts, seeds, and raw vegetables, can be made easier by cooking thoroughly or blending. Soups, smoothies, purees and well cooked stews are ideal.
ARE YOU NEW TO AYURVEDA?
Are you wondering what Ayurveda is and how to use it for 'Dental Surgery or Missing Teeth' and health in general?
On Joyful Belly, we've created an extensive categorization of food in relation to qualities (gunas). By eating an optimal diet that balances your gunas, your whole body is strengthened and the conditions that created the disorder are removed. Once the root causes of the disease are removed, the disease lessens in strength or disappears altogether. Additional remedies - such as herbs and lifestyle practices - focused on the specific disorder, can greatly enhance your healing.
