WHAT DOES IT DO TO YOU? HOW CAN YOU MINIMIZE NEGATIVE EFFECTS?
Are you prone to a problem with 'Eats quickly'?
If you lead a hectic lifestyle and find yourself always running from place to place, it can be hard to switch gears and slow yourself down. The first step might be in planning, long before the meal. Have you carved out enough time in your schedule to cook and eat? As you sit down to your meal, take a few deep belly breaths before digging in. Say a short prayer or expression of thanks. Each of these practices brings mindfulness, grounding you in the present moment so that you can fully and sensually enjoy your meal.
Once you have calmed and centered yourself, start to engage mindfully with your food. Notice its colors, textures, and smells. Smell your food. Take small, slow bites and chew food thoroughly, savoring each and every moment. When you eat with mindfulness and at a slower pace, you improve your digestion and assimilation of nutrients.You'll also find it's much easier to notice when you are truly full, which can help you stop overeating. Ayurveda suggests that the best diet is one where you carefully taste each morsel of food in this way. The flavor and taste of your food changes with every bite, as your body has a continual feedback loop to help you know what to eat, and how much. When you slow down and listen, you can hear those messages more clearly and let your body lead the way to healthier choices and portions.
Another reason you might be tempted to eat too quickly is because of a real or imagined fear that your food will disappear off your plate if you do not quickly devour it. Maybe when you remember the frustration of a favorite special food item that was eaten by someone else in the house. Perhaps this is still a reality in your current household, and you learned to eat your favorite foods quickly and immediately. Again, bringing mindfulness can help you to overcome this pattern, which is ultimately causing more harm than good to your body. It can be frustrating to have your favorite food items eaten by loved ones, but eating them too quickly or immediately is not a healthy alternative.

What Imbalances Can It Cause?'Eats quickly' is likely to aggravate the following doshas and qualities. If you have a systemic imbalance of one of these doshas or qualities, Ayurveda would generally recommend removing, substitute or lessen the frequency of 'Eats quickly'.
AGGRAVATES THESE DOSHAS & QUALITIES
Imbalance AccumulatesImproper food and lifestyle causes balances to accumulate. Ayurveda shows you exactly which doshas and qualities will accumulate in your body. Once these doshas and qualities accumulate too much, they will begin to cause disease. You can reduce an imbalanced dosha or quality by removing things that aggravate it from your diet and lifestyle.

STAGE OF DISEASE: 0 - POTENTIAL CAUSEPotential causes increase and disturb your imbalanced doshas and qualities, causing them to accumulate and spiral out of control. For example, if you're overheated and eat a chili pepper, heat may become excessive and cause disease. As a dosha or quality accumulates in your body according to your dietary and lifestyle habits, it is more and more likely to cause disease. You can reduce an imbalanced dosha or quality in two ways, by removing, or lessening the frequency of aggravating causes from your diet and lifestyle, as well as by favoring balancing diet and lifestyle practices. For example, try eating something as cool as a cucumber when you're overheated, instead of a chili pepper.
HOW AYURVEDA WORKSARE YOU WONDERING HOW AYURVEDA CAN HELP YOU?
WHY IS AYURVEDA THE RIGHT SOLUTION?Ayurveda strengthens the body, in addition to addressing the disorder. It take a holistic, systemic approach, instead of myopically focusing on the disorder in question. Ayurveda shows a person how to interpret signs and symptoms of imbalance, and how to address them using materials from home, so they can optimize their health on a continual basis. You can't take the doctor home with you, but you can take Ayurveda home with you. Ayurveda is the most advanced and easy to use home system for self healing with an exceptional focus on digestion.
HOW DOES AYURVEDA WORK?Ayurveda starts by identifying your body type, which identifies certain tendencies in your body to get sick (as well as identifying your strengths). It uses body type to determine the likely root causes of your disorders. Next, Ayurveda analyzes the nature of your disorder. It fits all your signs and symptoms into a pattern, expressed as a combination of gunas / qualities. For example, you may have a heat disorder, a cold disorder, or an oily disorder, etc. This simple categorical approach shows you how to correct systemic imbalances and strengthen your body as a whole.
On Joyful Belly, we've created an extensive categorization of food so you can easily match food to your imbalances (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.
