FEEL LIKE A FAILURE AFTER OVEREATING
WHAT DOES IT DO TO YOU? HOW CAN YOU MINIMIZE NEGATIVE EFFECTS?
Are you prone to a problem with 'Feel like a failure after overeating'?
Slipping up does not make you a failure; when you start to change a habit around food, especially if its one you've had for many years, you are bound to go back to the old line of behavior every now and then.
Instead of feeling like a failure, take action! Turn your disappointment into curiosity. Redirect self criticism into self-inquiry. How do you feel after overeating? What can your body teach you about this experience? Your body continues talking to you even after you fall off the wagon. So, roll up your sleeves and get ready for self-discovery.
Recently I overate some chocolate. It was sitting there in the front seat of the car, tantalizing me. I ate a bit, then a bit more, than all of it! The truth is I wasn't really paying attention. I was distracted by driving, and not really making any space to enjoy the chocolate, and that's why I overate. Of course, I knew all along this was bad for me. Then I started to actually feel bad. The caffeine overstimulated me. The chocolate irritated my digestion. Finally a bit strung out, I had trouble sleeping that. In the depths of my insomnia, I tried to remember the taste of the chocolate, recalling how it tasted and felt in my mouth. I wanted to connect the taste to this awful feeling I was having.
As you journal your experiences with food, wax poetic. Get into all the nuances. Your purpose in this exercise is to develop a clear and present relationship with food. Each time you can connect food choices to your visceral reactions, you'll be teaching your tongue and redirecting your impulses towards more stable eating patterns. You'll be discovering the wonderful mysteries of your body.
Chocolate will no doubt continue to entice and lure me into bad food experiences. But each time, I become more aware of how to moderate it. Failures and other stumbling blocks will continue to disrupt your best intention. But they also offer you perhaps the most poignant opportunity to learn and grow. Take those opportunities to make lemonade out of lemons.
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.
