Kirti Tewani shared the tips in a TikTok video which has been viewed more than 140,000 times.

The first mistake she shares involves the combination of milk and fruit.

She says that milk takes longer to digest and shouldn’t be paired with fruit.

“Milk takes longer to digest where fruit digests very quickly,” Tewani said.

“Now imagine that combination doing things to your stomach.”

Next, Tewani boldly said to stop enjoying your hot tea with honey.

“Stop heating your honey,” the Ayurveda expert said.

In the comments, she said this is just an “Ayurvedic principle” that she follows for better health.

Another tip the health guru had was to put jaggery or tulsi in your milk.

“I know a lot of Indians put tulsi or holy basil in their chai with milk – stop doing that,” she said.

In the comments, she elaborates saying: “Holy basil belongs to the mint family and has a pungent, bitter taste.

“Milk on the other hand has very different properties. Having foods that are incompatible in nature leads to imbalances in the body.”

She also said that just because a food is bland doesn’t mean that it is better for you.

“Now bland food is not your digestion’s best friend so add spices to your food.”

And finally, Tewani said that you should always be critical of new health trends.

“People do all this trendy stuff with food without understanding the long-term effects of that particular ‘health food’ on their bodies,” she said.

“Try doing something that is more sustainable for your body rather than hopping from one trend to the other. It’s not doing any good for your body.”

According to her bio on TikTok, Kirti Tewani makes videos on lifestyle, diet, herbs and sustainability.
