Cool Inner Fire Formula

Cooling down the inner fire, or digestive fire, would sound like a good idea if it was burning hot. In this analogy, it may help to think of the digestive system likened to a wood-fire that needs just the right amount of wood added to the flame to keep the life of the fire burning. One could tell for sure if the tending of this digestive fire was in balance only with knowledge and understanding of how the gut works. If this fire were to be burning hot, then there would exist the possibility of a disruption between the balance of food intake, the metabolism or utilization of nutrients, and the evacuation of waste material. This imbalance could cause symptoms in a person that appear as minor skin problems, mild digestive irritability, fiery emotions, and being quick to anger. The reality of the situation is that we may all experience symptoms of “heat” throughout our lives, even if we aren’t aware of it happening at the time. When it does happen, one may think of adjusting diet, re-evaluating exercise routines, and maybe even taking some time to meditate, or contemplate, in order to ask the question, “what does my inner fire want?”
