I am a tad low energy today for I am on a 3 day Ayervedic cleanse to detox my system. I find these so very important to health. Any cleanse you choose that works for you and your lifestyle is good. I have done many, usually twice a year to detox, allow our digestive system to reset, observe my relation to food and eating habits, clear all levels and just find greater health. Hippocrates, the father of medicine, stressed this as a way to find health easily. Many religions and spiritual practices, ie,. lent and advent do this for cleansing as we approach the shift in season or holy days.
I usually do one before spring and in fall. A friend was making this goulash, as I call it and offered me to do it with her for 3 days so I thought sure. I am open to learn all the ways we can find greater health through simple, practical, easy ways. After the gluttony of the holidays and the coming of spring, it seemed perfect. I am planning to do a juice one with a class at The Room at Meadowbrook in March as well. I must learn of it first but I like trying the different ways to see what works better for me. I also have learned so much on the digestive system through these cleanses. Let's face it, our food sources are not as healthy as they could be. I do eat well and organic yet we all could use some restraint.
It supports me in greater food pleasure when I am done as well. Food tastes so good and I realize the power of nourishing my body, spirit, emotions and pleasure more richly. People forget that when you do a cleanse, your organs do detox for they have a rest. You don't feel so great as toxins are flowing out so you should be informed and prepared. As I said I am low energy, very tired eyes as I write this and ready to hit the bed at 8:30. It is winter and sleep is on the table this time of year and healing of itself. You are tired for you are detoxing and healing so the body wants to sleep.
This is a very easy cleanse for you can eat all you want of this rice, mung bean and Indian spice mix. It is filling and tastes good if you like Indian food and has a zing. You can buy the material for a week cleanse for only $30 which seems reasonable. My friend split it with me so we are doing 3 days for quick reset. Another friend is doing the Masters Cleanse for a few days of water, cayenne pepper and maple syrup all day. I have done that for one day a week in spring but never for 3 days or a week like they suggest. I don't go crazy on these, just use them as a tool to support myself.
So as we come upon the warmer weather consider finding a cleanse that fits you. It is great health and healing. It supports you to understand yourself, your food ways and how you eat just because. The simplicity of it, the true support it offers your digestion and the cut down in calories is all so good. Rather than not eat things I love, I just deter for a few days or week cleanse and then get back to loving food fully again.
