Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Allergies are incredibly commonplace in America these days. Most individuals are unaware of Ayurvedic wisdom that helps keep digestive fire (agni) high to properly process foods and prevent the accumulation of toxins (ama).

She notes that the pasteurization and overprocessing of foods significantly contributes to these allergies and can be reduced or avoided with an Ayurvedic diet. Namaste
