What is Ayurvedic Detoxification Simplified? The practice of cleansing is considered a vital part of an Ayurvedic lifestyle, with great potential for improved energy, strength, and immunity, as well as a renewed love of life. At its root, an Ayurvedic cleanse improves the strength of agni (the metabolic fire) in the GI tract and throughout the body by resting and purifying the digestive system. Ayurveda sees balanced agni as one of the most important requirements in achieving optimal health. Tending to agni with a cleanse offers a potent antidote to any imbalances that might be active in your system.
In this workshop, we are going to explore the various cleansing methods outlined in Ayurveda to minimize the variety and complexity of inputs (and potential toxins) so that the body can rest, recuperate, and repair itself. And amazingly, when the deluge of damaging inputs slows, your body will immediately take advantage of the lull to do some very deep cleaning.
An Ayurvedic Cleanse is a food-based cleanse that you may implement at any time of year. Day in and day out, it processes all kinds of inputs—distinguishing what’s good for you from what’s not, doing its best to eliminate any harmful substances alongside routine metabolic waste. But these days, our bodies are inundated with a never-ending barrage of stressors: environmental toxins, processed foods, unresolved emotions, and psychological stress, to name a few. Inevitably, in attempting to “digest” it all, we accumulate some degree of toxicity—which, over time, can build up in the system, deposit in the tissues, and compromise our health.
What you’ll take away;
- Restore a sense of calm to the mind and the nervous system.
- Foster both clarity and groundedness in the mental, spiritual, and emotional spheres.
- Nurture an improved sense of energy, vitality, and enthusiasm for life.
- Support the maintenance of a healthy body weight.
- Restore and maintain balanced sleep cycles.
- Promote regular and balanced elimination.
- Help to recover your natural state of balance.
This workshop guides you through a traditional Ayurvedic cleanse that involves four distinct phases, each of which plays an important role in the process:
- Preparation—The First Step
A time to clean up your diet and lifestyle in preparation for an effective cleanse.
- Active Cleansing—The Heart of the Cleanse
A period of eating a monodiet of grains, kitchari (basmati rice cooked with split mung beans), vegetables, and plenty of detoxifying fluids; the process at this stage can be complemented by a number of supportive lifestyle practices.
- Reintroduction—A Buffer for Your Digestive Fire
A time to slowly diversify the diet, gradually incorporating simple, whole foods (other than kitchari) and eventually re-introducing common allergens such as wheat, dairy, soy, and nightshades.
- Rejuvenation—The Final Step
This is the time to offer deep nourishment to the tissues and to promote rejuvenation throughout the system.
