Should You Do Gut Reset?

“Yes” if you are struggling with:


It is the trapping of air in the gut owing to the fermentation of food in the gut from indigestion or rise in Samana Vata from the frequent consumption of crunchy snacks, dehydrated food like chips, porous fruits like watermelon and melon. Some other common causes are constipation, overeating, swallowing air, GERD, IBS, and lactose intolerance.

Gluten Intolerance

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. The classic symptom of gluten intolerance is diarrhea. Other symptoms include bloating, wind, fatigue, low blood count (anemia), headaches, depression, anxiety, brain fog, fatigue, pain, and digestive problems.

Choosing the non-GMO variety of wheat and resetting your gut helps in tackling gluten intolerance.


Acne, also known as “Yuvana Pidika’, occurs due to inflammation/ama formed in the gut paired with Pitta imbalance. Induced purgation (Virechana, Sramsana) helps in detoxifying the body and lowers excessive Pitta as well as cleanses the gut.


Research suggests that an imbalance in the gut microbiome can trigger inflammation and Immune responses through the Gut – Skin axis, which contributes to psoriasis. Ayurvedically, cleansing the gut, and blood and resetting the gut microbiome helps in the healthy formation of skin tissue.

My 2 Cents…

If your car needs cleansing every month and is serviced thoroughly every year.

Why is our body which is a much more complex machine, not being cleansed at least once a year and not given an ‘engine reset’?
