Modern science scoffs at stories concerning alchemy, which is the ancient process of turning non-precious metal into gold. Yet alchemy is used by every living organism to turn food into something more precious than gold – nutrients for growth, maintenance, and the repair of living tissue.

The process of eating and digesting food is an offering to the temple of the living God – your body. In ancient offerings, a material is transformed into energy by fire. In ayurvedic medicine, the digestive fire is called Agni. Modern science calls Agni “digestive enzymes.” Agni is vital for the transformation of food into living tissue. When you digest, you are an alchemist. Digestion and oxygen maintain life. Digestive fire needs air. Your body is a mirror of the natural world. You have to work in accord with the laws of nature to maintain health through proper digestion. According to Dr. Jonathan Wright, low stomach acid, part of the digestive fire, can cause hardening of the arteries. The inability to breakdown and digest food can lead to almost any disease.

Are you using the best material for energy and growth? Are you eating high quality food? If your digestion is incomplete, or if your food is not wholesome, then the effects on the mind and body will be less than optimal. By wholesome, I mean organic and fresh. Without proper digestion, even the best food becomes poisonous. Later in this chapter, we will discuss guidelines for proper digestion.

Most of you have eating habits that are difficult to change. Don’t get discouraged, because even small changes can positively improve your health. As you grow older, your ability to digest and absorb nutrients decreases. Especially as you age, proper digestion becomes even more important to maintain good health. Ayurveda has good guidelines for digestion to enable your body to function at peak performance. The acid-alkaline balance is also of paramount importance for proper digestion, to lower blood pressure, and for perfect health. Calcium, magnesium, potassium, and super green foods create alkaline body chemistry. However, a predominately animal-based diet depletes these minerals. To lower hypertension, you need to preserve these minerals. Read on to find out how.
