Ayurveda/Turn veg?


I get constipated whenever I eat meat (mostly chicken). It probably started when I turned 35, a year back.

I usually take meat on a Friday night. Have a bad weekend and by Monday I am back on track. I get very hard motion on the next morning and only partial (only 20% or so) evacuation.

I am fine on the other days. Does this mean I should avoid meat altogether. I my system is no longer able to handle meat? Are these periodic disturbances in the digestive system going to hurt me in the long run?

Thank you for taking time to answer my question.

Dear Mr Andrew

Sure its showing that your system needs more healthy succulent and fibrous food. If it is possible to avoid meat then its better to avoid it than to look for remedies. Hope you agree. And in your case indications are strong enough. \

Take a simple remedy to detoxify yourself that is trifala. 1spoon before bed with warm water. It will take care of your system. If still you want to have non veg some days then may be try more fibrous vegetables in your other diets and take lots of fruits and whole grains. If it still doent help much then its better to leave altogether.

Health and Peace
