Ayurvedic Detox

Did you know that our body constantly eliminates toxins from our system? However, certain symptoms indicate that our detox systems need some extra support.

Symptoms of an intoxicated system:
  • new food sensibilities and intolerances
  • skin breakouts 
  • weak immune system
  • cough and mucus
  • headaches
  • weak nails and brittle hair
  • foggy mind and concentration problems
  • hyperactivity
  • abdominal discomfort due to gas accumulation and constipation
  • insomnia
  • lack of appetite or nausea after eating
  • fluid retention
  • digestive problems
  • difficulties maintaining bodyweight
  • lack of energy

  • Ayurvedic detox is a holistic approach to cleansing and rejuvenating the body and mind in accordance with the principles of Ayurveda, a traditional system of medicine from India. People choose to undergo Ayurvedic detox for several reasons, as it offers various potential benefits:

    1. Removal of Toxins: Ayurvedic detox aims to eliminate accumulated toxins and impurities from the body. According to Ayurvedic principles, these toxins (known as "ama") are believed to be a primary cause of various health issues.

    2. Improved Digestion: Detoxification processes in Ayurveda usually include dietary changes and herbal formulas that can help improve digestion and promote better absorption of nutrients.

    3. Balancing Doshas: Ayurveda categorizes individuals into different constitutional types or doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha). Detoxification can help balance these doshas, which is essential for maintaining overall health and preventing imbalances that can lead to illnesses.

    4. Enhanced Energy and Vitality: After a detox, many people report feeling more energetic, lighter, and rejuvenated. Removing toxins and restoring balance can contribute to increased vitality and overall well-being.

    5. Mental Clarity: Ayurvedic detox practices often involve relaxation techniques such as Yoga and breath work, which can help clear the mind, reduce stress, and improve mental clarity and focus.

    6. Weight Management: Some individuals use Ayurvedic detox as part of a weight management program. Cleansing the body can help reset metabolism and encourage healthier eating habits.

    7. Improved Skin Health: Detoxification can contribute to clearer and healthier skin by removing toxins and promoting better circulation.

    8. Stress Reduction: Ayurvedic detox often includes lifestyle changes and practices that help reduce stress. Stress reduction is crucial for overall health and well-being.

    It's important to note that Ayurvedic detox is a highly individualised process. The specific practices and treatments recommended can vary based on an individual's constitution, imbalances, and health goals. It is advisable to do the program with a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner who can provide personalised guidance and supervision throughout the process. Ayurvedic detox is recommended as health prevention and habit adjustment.

    During an Ayurvedic detox we adjust, eliminate, incorporate and learn what our body needs and feels.

    What should you avoid to support your liver function?

    One of the many roles the liver plays in our body is detoxification. It changes harmful substances and breaks it down into less harmful substances that can then be excreted from your body. This is a process that goes on all the time but it is the lifestyle choices that affect the efficiency.

    Some of the most common substances that load our liver and interfere with the efficiency of the liver detoxification mechanism are:

    • Alcohol
    • Caffeine
    • Synthetic substances eg. medication, pesticides, cosmetics
    • Trans fats
    • Refined sugar
    • Infection; eg. viruses
