QUESTION: I see, Do you think I am harming my vata through exercise then? or is the bloating a good thing?

Another thing when after exercise, not only do I bloat, I also get itch in mouth like some allergy and also I sneeze,
and get out alot of transparent snot from my nose. exacly as in the morning when I wake up. Is this kapha being eliminated?


ANSWER: No, you are not harming your vayu and bloating is not Gud thing.
Naturally vayu move downwards but in your case this vayu is not moving downwards cos it's path is blocked by kapha and this vayu starts moving in other directions resulting in bloating.

QUESTION: Hello Gary!!

Just wanted to update you a little bit.
I just finished my spinning workout 30 minutes ago, and after that I was so swollen/bloated I looked pregnant. Then I took a piece of ginger and juiced it through my juicer and added 2 ml of lemon, just like you said. I drank it and two minutes after I got so much gas that came out, and 2 minutes later the bloating was GONE! I was stunned! this bloating after exercise usually lasts for 2 hours!!
Ginger is very powerfull I can see that now. I only have two questions now,

1. Is it allright to take gingerjuice without having something to eat later? Or do I have to eat 30 minutes after this gingerjuice?

2. Is it allright to press it through my Juicer and then store it in the fridge, so I dont have to take out the juicer everytime. If that is okey, How long can the gingerjuice be stored in fridge before it goes bad?

Thank you so very much for telling be about this miracle ginger-juice!!! :) YOU ROCK!

1. Ginger juice is also a very good carminative so you will feel hungry after 30-45 min of its intake. In that case it's better to take something but there is no harm if you do not take anything.
Yes you can take  out juice with juice for max of 3 days only. It will not perish in bridge but it's qualities might change.
