In Ayurveda, the sister science of yoga, when you don’t have enough digestive fire, it allows the accumulation of a substance called ama, which literally translates to toxic sludge. Needless to say, ama can significantly impact your mood, your energy, and your body. Here, Larissa Hall Carlson, who co-teaches our upcoming course Ayurveda 201 with John Douillard, explains how to tell if you are experiencing excess mental or physical toxins.
