Millions of people across the globe have turned to Ayurveda because it promotes natural healing of the body. An age-old alternative medical system, it has its roots in India.
Ayurveda does not just stop at the treatment of various illnesses. On the contrary, it is a way of life which helps human beings to reach their full potential in their lifetime. It offers dietary advice based on your body type, herbal remedies for health issues as well as breathing, exercising and meditation techniques to usher in mental and physical well-being.
Ayurvedic detoxification is becoming extremely popular in the West due to its effectiveness in cleansing the body of impurities. At the same time, it also relieves the mind of tension, stress, and anxiety and harmonizes the body, soul and brain. It is also helpful for those who wish to lose weight, eliminate waste from the body for healthier skin and improve their metabolism.
Here are some Ayurvedic tips which will help to remove toxins from your body:
A person with “cold” can eliminate phlegm from the body by drinking organic Kapha tea. At the same time, having this tea regularly ensures that toxins get eliminated from the body. Here’s the recipe:
- 1/4 teaspoon dry ginger
- 1 clove
- Basil leaves
- 1 cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon fenugreek seeds
- 1 cup boiling water
Mix dry ginger, clove, cinnamon, fenugreek seeds together and add the mixture to the boiling water along with the tulsi leaves. Let it sit for 10 minutes and then strain the mixture. You can also add lemon juice to it for taste.
Not eating anything for at least 13 hours a day, gives your digestive system a break thus making it work more efficiently the next time you decide to eat. It helps to expel toxins while aiding the body to rejuvenate and refresh itself.
But before deciding to fast, it’s important to ascertain the levels of ama (toxins) in the body. Also, don’t forget to decide the duration of your fast and to keep your body constitution in mind which Best Care Wellness can help you with.
Fasting shouldn’t make you feel extremely weak. If you feel that you won’t be able to maintain a total fast, then you can have a light fast wherein you only consume raw fruits and vegetables. Even better, you can do the fast mimicking diet through Best Care Wellness Center which tricks your body into thinking you are doing a water fast.
