Step 3: Remove Toxins

Overeating, wrong dietary habits and unhealthy foods contribute to poor digestion. Poor digestion results in the formation of Ama Dosha (toxins) in your body. Ama Dosha is mainly responsible for almost all diseases. It is very sticky and heavier in nature. It sticks to channels and blocks the natural flow of dosha in the body. Ultimately, it results in an alternation of natural functions of tissues and causes discomfort in organs and tissues, which is called disease. So, we need to remove it on a regular basis to remain healthy. For this ayurveda, suggest fasting.
