The gradual buildup of toxins in the body often leads to an imbalance that manifests as different symptoms, from minor changes such as bloating, skin problems and lack of the energy, to something more serious such as colds that would not go away or slow healing from injuries and disease. While these symptoms can be disconcerting and uncomfortable, they are the body’s warning mechanisms, telling you to change unhealthy habits, seek treatment and correct any imbalance that may be causing these changes. And this is where Ayurvedic body cleansing plays an important role.
Ayurvedic Body Cleansing: What is it?
Ayurveda, which means the science of life, is a practice that teaches us how to be aware of subtle imbalances in the body and to utilize therapeutic strategies that are tailored to meet the unique requirements of each individual.
An Ayurvedic cleanse is often recommended when you see the following signs and symptoms that indicate the presence of an imbalance in the body:
– digestive discomfort
– cravings for spicy, sweet or salty food
– trouble listening to what the body needs (food, sleep, exercise)
– lack of energy, exhaustion
– difficulty sleeping
– trouble focusing
– memory and cognitive problems
– overall feeling of being unwell
How an Ayurvedic Body Cleanse Can Restore Balance
Ayurvedic body cleansing restores balance in the body by drawing out excess Vata, Pitta and Kapha energies and toxins from the tissues and into the gut so that they can be effectively eliminated. This results in an improved sense of balance and restoration of health. You feel a restored sense of calm, clarity in your mental, spiritual and emotional life. You begin to enjoy higher levels of energy, reinvigorated vitality, balanced and regular physiological processes and optimal health.
Ayurvedic body cleansing is done periodically, but the exact frequency and method depend on the unique physiological needs of the individual. This includes the current state of balance, age, strength, and constitution. The length, intensity, and depth may be adapted according to the unique needs of the person.
These therapies may include changes in the diet, and of course, the cleanse itself. Here at The Athreya Ayurvedic Centre, we offer different external therapies that include herbal cleanses to clean the GI tract, the liver and other organ, oil-based cleanses for cleansing and rejuvenation that benefits multiple organs, herbal smoke treatments, blood-letting for certain conditions, and the use of Rasayana medications for natural rejuvenation.
