If you are in a habit of having milk soon after eating your favorite chicken then you need to stop it!  Have you ever thought as to why our elders stopped us from consuming milk after chicken or mutton?

A number of problems, including gas, bloating, discomfort, stomach ache, nausea, acid reflux, heartburn, and ulcers, can happen by drinking milk after eating meat.

This is due to the fact that both milk and meat are good sources of protein, and consuming them together slows down the digestive process and may produce acid reflux. Know what Ayurveda has to say about this.

People frequently consume milk products shortly after or together with their meals. Ayurveda does not endorse the practise of pairing milk products with salty meals, especially if the cuisine is not vegetarian, even though it may enhance your dining experience. Certain meal pairings are prohibited in Ayurveda and are referred to as Viruddha Ahaar. Combining them can cause a range of health problems, including skin problems and stomach problems. According to traditional medicine, milk and non-vegetarian cuisine are both undesirable combinations, as are salt and milk. If you have skin problems, you should probably think again about what you are eating.

The guiding principle of Ayurveda, according to doctor Nitika Kohli says 'foods requiring different digestive environments need to be consumed in isolation.'

According to Dr. Kohli, eating the proper combination at the appropriate time or interval is essential to maintaining good health. According to Ayurveda, the imbalance of the three doshas—Kapha, Vata, and Pitta—which can seriously harm one's health and wellbeing—is the main cause of this, she continues.

She recently said on Instagram, "A combination of milk with chicken (or any other non-vegetarian food) may not be a smart idea, as the digestive process of milk varies from the digestion of chicken that is high in protein."

"Having milk and chicken may therefore cause toxins to develop and accumulate in the body. On the other hand, some individuals may find it difficult to digest chicken, and the production of stomach acids may significantly burden the digestive process “. She Add

Consumption of this mixture, according to the Ayurveda expert, may even have negative long-term repercussions. "These consequences may include gastrointestinal problems such stomach pain, nausea, indigestion, gas, bloating, ulcers, poor odour, constipation, acid reflux, and several serious skin conditions,"

Despite these arguments, if you still choose to consume meat and milk as part of your diet, you should do so with a gap of around 2-3 hours between each meal. This promotes improved digestion and nutrient absorption from the food you eat.
