Ayurvedic Philosophy on Health
Here is a short primer on the Traditional Indian health care system of Ayurvedic.
The traditional health care system that is from the India sub-continent is called Ayurvedic. Ayurvedic is structured around a philosophy of maintaining total health rather than waiting until you are ill to take action.
Allopathic medicine is the medicine of correcting ill health. It has a different philosophical base. This is not what we are delving into at this time.
The whole idea of Ayurvedic is to create environments around and inside the body that keep you healthy and well.
This is a good book to read about Ayurvedic Philosophy.

Digestion is your first line of defense in most forms of disease.
If you reduce the ingestion of harmful foods and substances and if you support your digestive system in eliminating wastes, you are helping your body to become healthy.
Part of your digestive tract includes the colon. A healthy and toned colon will aid in the elimination of bodily wastes. There are three methods that the body uses to eliminate waste; they include the bowels, the kidneys, and lung exhalation.
It only makes sense to help those systems remain healthy and functioning.
Colonoscopies, the physical viewing of the large bowel, are recommended by most doctors for people over the age of 50. They are used to find and treat cancer.
One by product of taking the medicine required to clean out the bowel before the medical procedure of the colonoscopy is difficulty achieving normal bowel function and proper bowel flora after the procedure. Often weeks go by and the bowels are not functioning as they did before. This, of course, assumes the bowels were performing satisfactorily before the colonoscopy!
Here are two methods that may help the bowels return to their proper elimination schedules. Consuming a good quality of yogurt or kefir is helpful in returning the bowel to a healthy state. Often the patient takes a few weeks to return to normal bowel elimination. Tripala guggulu may be added in the form of two pills per evening.
