I do have to make a conscious effort to eat slower. I didn't know it was a vata trait, I thought it was a mom trait. When I was young I ate very small bites and ate so slow it drove my family crazy. And I was very thin. Guess there's a correlation there. Nibblers are thin, gobblers are fat. Hey, I think I'll stencil that on the dining room wall!
I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong! I'll apply all your suggestions. And it sounds like it's time for another liver flush too.
Thank you very much for taking the time to answer so thoroughly. I really really appreciate it! Thank you!!!
