How Do You Cleanse Ayurvedic Way?

October 1, 2019

Cleaning is a ritual that is accustomed to tradition. While modern methods of cleaning (such as juice fasting or elimination of diet) abound, the Ayurvedic cleansing method is by no means a modern method. People have used natural Ayurvedic treatments and curative cleansing for centuries. Although there are many options, they may be exhausted or out of balance. Most people can’t and can’t drink juice alone for a few days.

Ayurveda’s hand sanitizer is effective for a variety of reasons. This type of cleaning, usually referred to as panchakarma, is nourished rather than deprived. It balances all constitutions or regulations and is inexpensive, so everyone can use it. In addition, it focuses on the recovery and replenishment of mind and body, while Deepak Chopra sees it as one, that is, both physically and mentally.

When to clean
As long as you feel excessive mother or undigested food, mood and experience of toxic by-products, you can complete Ayurveda cleaning or detoxification. Too many symptoms of ama include:

fatigue
irritability
Physical stiffness or sense of accomplishment
Accidental increase in weight or loss of weight
Eager, especially sugar or processed carbohydrates
Candida
Skin problems such as dry skin, rash or acne
White coating on the tongue, especially when waking up in the morning
Traditionally, Ayurveda has been cleaned three times a year. Their time corresponds to changes in the season. Ayurveda recognizes three seasons based on its main Doshic quality:

spring
Summer/early autumn
Late autumn/winter
You can detox clean at the beginning of the season or when you are tired.

Ayurveda cleaning: three stages
The traditional Ayurvedic cleaning method is called panchakarma and takes three to four weeks. During this process, the Ayurvedic doctor will tailor the body care for the individual. However, you can do more routine Ayurvedic cleaning yourself at home. Complete panchakarma cleaning usually lasts for three to four weeks, but you can customize it as needed. Each of these three phases is critical to overall cleaning, so keep each phase for the same number of days. For example, your cleaning time may be 6 days (2 days per stage), 12 days (4 days per stage) or 21 days (7 days per stage).

Phase 1: Preparation
The first phase focuses on preparing the intestines through diet cleansing and hydration. The clean diet defined here is a diet that reduces intestinal residue. During the first week, you will need to focus on warm, simple foods and avoid the following:

Meat, including fish (egg can also be)
Dairy industry
Processing, packaging or processing of food
sugar
beans
caffeine
alcohol
At this stage, you also need to work hard to incorporate large amounts of green vegetables, green leafy vegetables and sugar beets into the diet because they can clean the intestines and lymph (for more information on lymph, see the Hydration section below).

Sample Week 1 menu option
breakfast:

Oatmeal, chopped apple and cinnamon cooked
Delicious oatmeal: warm oatmeal with ghee, a pinch of salt and withered green vegetables
Lunch or dinner:

Vegetable soup and salad with beet, a small bowl of rice
Red or green curry curry with rice and steamed vegetables
Buckwheat with grilled vegetables and sesame sauce
Stuffed zucchini: a hollowed out zucchini stuffed with seasoned rice and vegetable mixture
Hydration
In the preparation phase, hydration is a key priority and will continue into the subsequent stages. With good hydration, the intestines are lubricated for healthy digestion and the lymph is optimally diluted. Lymph is the liquid of human immunity. It flows through the passage and is pumped only by your body movements or manipulations (such as massage or stretching). The lymph contains white blood cells. These cells surround foreign invaders in the human body, such as bacteria or mutant cells (such as precancerous cells). The lymph swept the cells into a “accommodation chamber” called a lymph node until they were cleared. Factors that may affect lymphatic health include dehydration, which causes the lymph to become thicker.

In addition to immunity, lymph fluid also plays an important role in healthy digestion. There is a layer of lymph around the intestines that helps to eliminate any pathogens that pass through the intestinal wall during digestion. Again, the congested lymph does not perform this task well, which can lead to cumulative ama. Make sure your lymph is ready for the second stage: clean, mash on some beets and bitter apples, and add moisture, moisture and moisture! Ginger tea is a good way to concentrate, moisturize and digest health at the same time.

Stage 2: Cleanup (Kitchari stage)
Now that your intestines have been rested from the bloody food, and the lymph is thin, it is time to start fine-tuning the firepower of the digestive system. At this stage in many traditional settings, you will focus on a specific type of cleansing diet, a nutritious Chichali meal and a ghee greasy. Oleic acidification is a term used in Ayurveda to describe the process of ingesting healthy oils.

Why choose Chichali? Kitchari is a traditional Indian dish made with basmati rice, split mung beans, ghee and spices. Kitchari is considered a “perfect meal” because it contains all the essential nutrients: carbohydrates (beans and rice), complete protein (mung beans) and fat (ghee).

Why do you want butter? Butter contains butyric acid, a metabolic by-product produced in the intestine that helps maintain a healthy intestinal wall. The ghee is rich in omega-3 fatty acids; fat-soluble vitamins; and short-chain, medium-chain and long-chain fatty acids. Ghee helps to lubricate and soften the inside of the digestive tract, helping to absorb and regularize. The study supports an old theory that the intake of ghee helps to bind and eliminate fat-soluble toxins from the system.

Daily Menu: Ghee + Kitchari
This is where Ayurveda’s cleaning methods really attract attention. In fact, this part is not as difficult as it sounds. In fact, the second stage can feel nutritious and satisfying compared to a typical American processed or low-fat food diet.

Morning ghee: There are two ways to consume daily ghee – you can drink it every morning and then put it outside of Kitchari for the rest of the day (preferred method), or you can skip the morning ghee, but add Ghee to eat your Kit Kat when eating.

For morning ghee: If you choose to perform ghee: you will start each day of the second phase and drink ghee on an empty stomach. How many? Usually, it is best to start with one tablespoon of melted ghee and then add one tablespoon every two days of staying in stage 2. If you perform stage 2 for seven days, drink 1 tablespoon of ghee on an empty stomach. On the first and second days, two tablespoons on the third and fourth days, three tablespoons on the fifth and sixth days, and four tablespoons on the seventh day.
For “incorporated” ghee: skip the above steps and use the ghee required in the recipe to prepare three daily Kitchari meals.
Kitchari Meal: Your daily meal will be made up of Kit Kat. Try to eat three meals a day and eat some snacks in the middle. To do this, it’s important to eat until you are full and fully satisfied with your meal. Now is not the time to reduce carbohydrates or focus on rejecting food! By eating until you are fully fed, you will be able to reduce the time between snacks after meals. A quick internet search will reveal several Chitley recipes, but the ingredients are mung beans, basmati rice, water and Indian seasonings. If the “morning ghee” method is followed, the ghee can be omitted; if the second method is followed, it can be added to the recipe.

Self care
The second phase focuses on digestion – including digestion of food and digestion of experience. Emotional turmoil stored in your body can accumulate karma, which is as harmful to your health as bad diet. When your body is working through its own healing process, it will undoubtedly provoke some stored emotions. This is a good thing! At this stage, daily daily self-care rituals and health care programs will help you direct love and acceptance to the trauma of past storage so that you can release them when you are ready. Below is a list of self-health rituals that may be performed each day. Choose one or several:

Abhyanga: Use warm oil to massage yourself or let others massage you. To balance Vata, use sesame oil or almond oil. To balance the pita, use coconut oil or olive oil. To balance Kapha, use sunflower oil or safflower oil. Massage can be done while showering. However, when maintenance is carried out after showering, oil can be left on the skin and actually penetrate into the skin, which is particularly nourishing.
Neti Pot: Use the Neti Pot every day to clean the nasal passages by following the steps below.
Nasya: Sesame oil is not only for external use! The sinus is provided with hydration by placing the sesame oil in a dropper and tilting the head backwards to drop two to three drops into each nostril. Keep the head tilted back for a few seconds and sniff to allow the oil to penetrate.
Skin brush: Like the intestines, the skin is surrounded by a layer of lymph. The liquid is moved by a dry skin brush. Use a stiff brush to brush the skin along the heart.
Exercise: Cleanses are the perfect time to go easy on your body. Incorporate gentle walks and light yoga into your daily routine while cleansing.
Meditation: Create space for daily meditation. If this is not part of your daily practice already, have no fear. Just find five minutes daily to sit in a comfortable position (the couch is fine), close your eyes, and turn your attention toward your breathing. This counts! This is meditation!
Self-reflection: Self-reflection often works best following meditation, when the subconscious mind reveals its inner workings. Self-reflection can take place mentally, while just sitting still and thinking through things, or also outwardly, such as by journaling or talking to a trained therapist.
Not sure what to reflect on? Try this simple technique: picture yourself as a child, six or seven years old. What is your greatest fear at that age? Put yourself back into your own childhood shoes, and feel what that fear felt like in your body. After a few moments, turn your attention toward your adult self. When in life do you experience that same feeling of fear? Reflect on these ties. Send love, acceptance, and healing to the sweet child of you, as well as to the now grown, adult version of child you.

A Note about Healing
Any of the following symptoms of healing can arise during the first and second phases:

Nausea
Headache
Fatigue
Irritability
Low mood/tearfulness
These symptoms are hard to deal with, but are signs that you are creating change within. Make sure to continue to hydrate in order to give your body a mode of eliminating the “bad.” Also, monitor your bowel movements. You should be having a bowel movement at least daily, though optimally two to three times daily. If your “output” is sluggish, try to increase your hydration and even consider adding a psyllium husk supplement daily to ensure things are moving. A milk laxative tea such as senna may also be useful, though this should only be used if both hydration and fiber have not helped.

Medical Considerations
Because kitchari is neither low calorie nor low in any macronutrients, it can safely be consumed by individuals with a variety of medical conditions, including diabetes. However, if you are on insulin, it is best to work with your doctor, an ayurvedic doctor, or a registered dietitian to devise a plan that is safe for you. You may need to learn to adjust your insulin to match a different amount of carbohydrate you will be eating if it is different than your typical meal plan.

Phase 3: Rejuvenate
Phase 3 is similar to phase 1—back to clean eating and a continued focus on hydration. During this phase, you may be tempted to eat everything at once, relieved to once again enter the world of food variety. However, it is important to reintroduce foods slowly—maybe starting by adding in steamed vegetables the first few days, followed by egg or beans later in the week. Continue to avoid caffeine, alcohol, meat, and sugar during this time, as your body will likely be sensitive to these items.
