Ascension Detox Protocol: Digestive Fire Reset

There are a lot of strong opinions out there about what a healthy diet is.

Some focus on the nutrition, others focus on the ethics and there are some kooks 🤪 that even talk about Ascension symptoms and the physical implications of activating our DNA and construction of our Light Body.

Most conscious diets will agree that highly processed foods, refined sugar and genetically modified produce don’t serve our body’s optimum function.

If you’re like me, the shear amount of information available can be pretty overwhelming.

When it comes to the spiritual path, many ancient wisdom traditions have prescribed diets and detoxification protocols as a guideline for enlightened living.

But the question I’ve been asking myself is what choices would be supportive to my physical body in today’s energetically shifting climate where our DNA is being exposed to activating photonic light and Ascension symptoms are on the rise.

Food on Earth today is so interesting. Not only because mainstream food and water chains seem to be insistent to sprinkle in artificial (often toxic) chemicals. But also because every place has a different climate and locally sourced produce.

That’s one of the reason I keep coming back to Ubud in Bali. I’ve never been anywhere else in the world that where local organic produce is plentiful and the medicinal properties of food is shared openly and freely.

One thing that Ubud is famous for is their raw vegan scene. When I first landed, I was sold. Raw = more life-force and vegan is both ethical and nutritious.

You can imagine my surprise when even after eating all the “healthy” foods here, that I noticed my skin rashes getting worse.

Now, this has been going on for a while and I’ve turned to Western medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Aryuveda, Human Design and even channeling my spirit guides and the Akashic Records to get more clarity on how to manage these symptoms.

These rashes can be uncomfortable and debilitating when raw and sore. Needless to say it’s been a long journey to seeking balance in the body with plenty of trial and error.

The good news is I’ve been able to peel back more inconspicuous layers of my skin rashes, like its connection to childhood trauma and even an entity attachment from Orion. Alas, still the symptoms persist so my quest for management strategies rolls on.

The general consensus is that skin rashes are my bodies preferred way of shedding dense energy, which is a tough pill to just accept and swallow.

A few days ago, I was in a cafe and a lady walks up to me saying she’s a psychic doctor. She proceeds to tell me how my body is releasing a lot of “Ama” and that I should burn a candle at night to help with the process.

Now, I’ve had my fair share of psychics walking up to me and giving unsolicited advice but when she pointed to the exact areas around my body where I was having serious rash fluid excretion, I listened more attentively.

When I got home, I began googling Ama and found out it is created when we have weak Agni (digestive fire).

I was surprised to find out one cause of weakened Agni was eating too many salads, raw fruits and cold foods like smoothies (basically the things I’ve had on heavy rotation for the past month). It's worth checking out the other causes of weak Agni – you might be surprised too!

One widely renowned treatment is the famous Aryuvedic healing dish "kitchari" – something I ate plenty of in India during my yoga teacher training.

Anyway, that was a long winded way to introduce another AOT Ascension Detox Protocol, this time a week long kitchari-only fast to get my digestive fire back up to full power and see how it affects my symptoms.

In Ayurveda, the concept of digestive fire, or Agni, is of central importance – where the strength of Agni in the body is a critical factor in determining overall health.

Strong Agni means we are able to digest, metabolize, and absorb nutrients from the food we consume.

Weak or imbalanced Agni means malabsorption and accumulation of natural toxins, referred to as Ama.

(Below are a few snaps of my local kitchari dealer @usadabali)

In Sanskrit, Ama translates literally to mean things like raw, uncooked, unripe, immature, or undigested. Essentially, it is a form of unmetabolized waste that can’t be utilized by the body.

Ama is a toxic, disease-causing substance that forms as a result of impaired Agni. It becomes a vicious cycle – when we have weak Agni, our body creates more Ama which further weakens our Agni.

Ayurvedic medicine is based on the idea that our world is made up of five elements – aakash (space), jala (water), vayu (air), teja (fire), and prithvi (earth).

A combination of each element results in three doshas, known as Vata, Kapha, and Pitta. These doshas are believed to be responsible for a person’s physical, mental, and emotional health.

Every person is said to have a unique ratio of each dosha, usually with one standing out more than the others. This unique ratio is said to define their Ayurvedic constitution – a blueprint to achieve optimal health.

Kitchari is one of Ayurveda's signature healing dishes that helps to balance all three doshas and reset the body's Agni.

The term kitchari translates to "mixture" and is a one-pot meal of split mung beans and rice, traditionally made with a little ghee (clarified butter) and potent digestive spices.

Digestive spices include turmeric, coriander, cumin, garlic, ginger, fennel, and fenugreek, which all support the production of healthy Agni.

As one of the most easily digestible foods, this dish is both nourishing and cleansing – gently removing Ama from the body.

Mung bean has an astringent (dry) quality, which has a natural pulling action that helps to remove toxic build-up from the intestinal lining. This pulling action is much gentler than the harsh or abrasive scraping action that happens with raw or cold foods – especially raw vegetables.

Kitchari also liquefies Ama during the 2nd stage of digestion. Once toxins are loose and liquefied, it is important that they get properly eliminated from the body. The split mung beans provide sufficient fiber to effectively move these toxins through the GI tract and out of the body.

After topping with some seasonal vegetables and a dollop of (coconut) yoghurt, Kitchari ticks all nutritional boxes and can be safely consumed as a mono-meal over the course of several days as a powerful Digestive Fire Reset.
