Three-day Ayurvedic Detox

A three-day day Ayurvedic detox that you can do at home and take charge of your own health! A  detox to help you remove toxins and help reverse the effects of stress and nourish the mind, body, and consciousness.

Toxins – According to Ayurveda, a toxin is anything that interferes with the natural state of balance, happiness, and health, leaving our bodies with imbalances. 

The two types of Toxins:

Emotional – Self doubt, negative thoughts and beliefs, stress, sleeplessness, and not letting go of painful experiences can eventually start taking a toll on our our physical body as well.

Physical – Toxins can be found in the food we eat, water we drink, air we breathe, products we use, clothes we wear, and in the environment we live in, which eventually starts taking over our emotions as well.

Ayurveda suggests to detoxify on regular basis with a quick three-day detox to bring and maintain everyday balance and well-being into our lives.

Start with simple, light, and easy to digest food – Simplifying diet can speed up the process of digestion and help eliminate accumulated toxins, boosting our energy levels. During your detox, make sure to include the six tastes (sweet, salty, sour, pungent, bitter, and astringent) in every meal to ensure that you are eating a balanced and satisfying diet. Ayurveda recommends avoiding dairy, meat, refined sugar, alcohol, caffeine, raw cold, and fried foods during the detox.

Suggested foods to eat during the detox –

  • Lentil and vegetable soups
  • Steamed, sautéed, or roasted broccoli, carrots, zucchini, asparagus, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, and beets
  • Lightly steamed greens such as spinach, chard, and beet greens
  • Rice, quinoa, millet, and barley
  • Spices such as ginger, cumin, coriander, and fennel
  • Sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds
  • Poached apples and pears; cooked apricots, prunes, and figs
  • Fresh berries – raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries

HerbsAmla is rich in fiber content and can be excellent in flushing out toxins from the body, regulating digestion, and keeping the gut working strong.

Create a daily schedule and stick to it. Make self massage, exercise, and meditation a part of it. Follow a routine as much as possible, go to bed early and avoid screens and technology. Dedicate the time to connect with yourself.

After the Detox – it’s important to gently transition by gradually introducing more complex foods into your diet like meat or dairy.
