Why Not Consume Nutritious Medicines During Illness?

**Why Not Consume Nutritious Medicines During Illness?**

When the body is afflicted by a disease, our digestive system and other bodily functions weaken. At this time, the consumption of nutritious medicines is not very beneficial because:

1. **Decreased Digestive Capacity:**

  During illness, the digestive system becomes weak, preventing the proper digestion and absorption of nutritious medicines.

2. **Increased Toxicity:**

  Due to illness, the amount of toxic substances (ama) in the body increases, which can reduce the effectiveness of nutritious medicines.

3. **Energy Utilization:**

  During illness, the body's energy is primarily spent fighting the disease, thus preventing the proper utilization of the nutrients from nutritious medicines.
