Meat Rejection And Yoga
I've been meditating for 20 years, on and off though not regularly at all and have done some yoga in the past. However I've been doing Hatha yoga once a week for the past few months. Now my body is rejecting eating meat. I don't enjoy eating it and when I do eat, I feel sick the following day. I want to know does this reaction have anything to do with doing yoga?
I have to say I don't mind becoming a vegetarian at all because I have never been a big fan of meat anyway.
I appreciate your response.
By doing meditation and yoga there occur some physiological changes on their own.
Yoga philosophy does not advocate eating non vegetarian diet. However, yoga is not prohibited for non vegetarians. With regular yoga practice, there comes a stage when you may not like to eat non vegetarian diet. Your body may be rejecting meat because deep inside your psychology, you may be feeling guilty for eating meat.
Also, yoga and meditation makes you strong internally, spiritually and your energy requirements are met without eating meat.
If you do not feel good after eating meat, stop eating meat for a while. If possible increase your intensity of yoga practice and do more meditation.
Be your own judge, ask yourself. Do not eat meat if you can, provided you can live comfortably without eating meat.
Hope this helps.
