According to Ayurveda, Ama is the root cause of disease. Ama is caused by a build up of toxins from excess dosha or from viral or bacterial invasion. This buld up of toxins can accumulate in various places in the body causing blockages and preventing the flow of life energy.
A detox or cleansing routine is as important for dogs as it is people. A detox routine helps eliminate Ama or toxins from body and allows life energy (ojas) to flow through the body.
