If your appetite and/or digestion become poor as the result of nervousness, stress, or illness, an excellent way to restore it is with the following ginger routine.
In a small glass, metal, or ceramic bowl, mash four table- spoons each powdered ginger, brown sugar, and ghee. Mix to a uniform consistency, cover, and store in a cool place.
Take a little bit of this ginger mixture every day before breakfast, making sure that you follow it with a good breakfast (hot cereal, grape juice, muffins, and herb tea with cinnamon in it is a good menu). Consume the ginger mixture according to the following schedule.
After finishing the ginger routine, your digestion should be normalized. If you still experience digestive difficulty, see a doctor; at the first sign of digestive cramps and pain, do not attempt this routine-consult a physician instead.
If you are trying to cure a long-standing vata imbalance or want to keep your digestion at its peak, taking a little fresh ginger every day is a good idea. It is also considered the best preventive against building up ama through improper digestion.
Cut a thin, nickel-sized slice from the end of a fresh ginger root, cut off the peel, and chop very fine. Add a few drops of lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Eat this mixture a half-hour before lunch and dinner to stimulate your digestion. If that is inconvenient, the mixture can be eaten just before the meal.
