Are you ready for an Ayurvedic Spring cleanse?
Spring is a time for new beginnings, growth and renewal. The flower are budding and a renewed sense of joy, positivity and celebration of birth is offered.
The moment you step into the awareness of letting go, releasing, and developing peace of mind is the ultimate moment you begin the next layer of shifting. The next process of a renewed self… another layer to your “whole self” journey ahead.
Back in the day, I didn’t know what a real cleanse really meant. I thought shifting what I was use to eating or jumping on these so-called “detoxes” was the norm to follow. The trends. Throughout my time studying Ayurveda, and now working with patients, the transformation through Panchakarma was indescribable. It is a full-blown spiritual, mental and transformational cleanse. The clarity of mind, the feeling of being so present at the moment as you eliminate deep toxins and shed what no longer serves you. Sure, the enormous amount of ghee taken is not the most appetizing however the process from every hour monitored by an Ayurvedic practitioner was well worth every strict process. A life experience. A true re-shift. In the end the completeness and rebirth of how you feel seems priceless. This is something that I offer my clients and to know how they are healing and shifting is beyond rewarding.
There are ways to honor yourself. One ways is through an Ayurvedic Spring Cleanse ( not necessarily a full Panchakarma immediately) which is beneficial for the senses and perfect in a transition stage. A cleanse is a chance to gain a new perspective. To eliminate any old “should” or pressures on what society thinks the norm “should be”. To not follow the herd. To follow your voice. To look deeper into your path, stay true to it, and follow your heart. A chance to never look back but look forward to new horizons, endless gratitude and best health.
Day in and day out our bodies are affected by our environment as we try to absorb digest it all while processing it in our spiritual bodies. At the same time, this accumulates in our systems and can lead to imbalances, lingering in our tissues and our minds. Sluggishness stays around a little longer so our energy may feel depleted. After the cold, damp, dense long winter we may feel this heaviness in our bodies and our mind. During seasonal changes, stress builds toxins in our system and before the next season approaches we must shed out what doesn’t serve us; ultimately revitalizing our organs. Timing is everything in Ayurveda and our bodies and hearts call for changes.
The winter transforms into beautiful spring and after events, toxins, stresses, emotions, meetings, commitments it is time to honor the seasonal changes, release and look forward to the incoming energy ahead. An Ayurvedic spring cleanse can help to remove excess dosha imbalances (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) from the body and resets our system for the season ahead. This is the time to simplify. As Dr. Frawley states, “as long as we are not living in harmony with nature and our constitution, we cannot expect ourselves to be really healed. Ayurveda gives us the means.”
My clients have seen a shift as a tailored approach is personalized for each individual in Ayurveda. When you can remove standard Americanized diets and reduce processed foods, alcohol, meats, sugars and lower coffee intake initially, the process of cleansing in our system has a higher success rate. For at least a week or more focus on healthy fats, vegetables, fruits, and whole grains before even to consider starting a spring cleanse.
During the core of the cleanse the regimen is tailored based on the individual’s unique characteristic and the diet provided resets the body which is simplified and clean for the tissues. Many individuals I work with directly don’t know how to cook or just don’t want to take the time and that is the beauty of consulting with a Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner. We can simplify the daily task and be there to guide through the process. How many providers in healthcare take the time to do this for their patients? That is where this science and quality practice sets apart from the rest; to promote health and prevent disease.
My initial Ayurvedic cleanse ( years ago ) wasn’t monitored after the core cleanse. This is why it is so important to work directly with a Certified Ayurvedic practitioner to educate about foods that you can slowly bring back that won’t aggravate your digestive system. This part is tricky and giving yourself time to reintroduce foods slowly after eating clean is the best approach to see how your body responds. It is about being mindful and having patience with yourself, which is a self-care lesson in itself
During this time one should embrace I say, the “natural space” of their surroundings.
-Eliminate any harsh or loud noises
-Find a sacred space to meditate, relax and ground self.
-Partake in Abhyanga ( Ayurvedic oil massages ) to enhance the cleanse by a certified Ayurvedic practitioner.
-Cooking Kitchari. Which is part of the process to satisfy the cravings providing nourishment while cleansing. This is part of the core cleansing process and keeps your cravings satisfied.
-Having your called mantras to repeat every morning upon waking.
-Stepping into a space of gratitude every night before you go to bed.
Nourishment is vital after an Ayurvedic cleanse. To provide stamina and energy, our bodies are reset and ready to go so choosing foods, practices, surroundings that bring in grounding and comfort to you can lift joy and boost mood.
Benefits of Ayurvedic Spring cleanses not only provide elimination of heavy toxins in the body but increase well-being through boosting energy and vitality. Say goodbye to the winter season behind us and yes to incoming energy.
