WHAT DOES IT MEAN? WHAT'S CAUSING IT? WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Are you prone to a problem with 'Strong/frequently thirsty'?
Swelling, edema, and dehydration increase a person's thirst. Consider how your body is releasing the water. If the urine is clear, you may be over hydrated. According to Ayurveda, the urine should be a pale yellow, neither too dark nor too light. If you sweat easily, that could point to a circulatory or Pitta problem. If stools are loose, it causes fluid an electrolyte loss.

ADDRESS ISSUES IN STAGE OF DISEASE 1STRONG/FREQUENTLY THIRSTY IS IN STAGE OF DISEASE 1 - AFFECTING DIGESTION

Since digestion is so metabolically intensive and sensitive to stress and emotions, the earliest warning signs of imbalance usually appear in the digestive tract first. You may have gas and bloating, for example, or acid reflux. Ayurveda recommends paying careful, close attention to warning signs. They indicate that an imbalance is starting to accumulate.
