Nourishing Your Body

Provided by: 

Your body already knows how to cleanse and rejuvenate. In fact, you are completing a mini-fast every night when you sleep: The term breakfast comes from "breaking the fast" of the night before. Your body is also constantly shedding toxins and waste through elimination.

However, this natural cleansing process often is not enough. The constant exposure to toxins now found in water, air, food, and medications place a huge burden on your body. In addition a stressful lifestyle, lack of exercise, and a diet of refined foods add to the toxic load. Some signs that you are experiencing toxicity might include ongoing headaches, skin problems, depression, low energy, poor digestion, and constipation.

Rejuvenating and purifying is often accomplished through a program of cleansing and detoxifying. This takes a willingness to step out of your normal routine and dietary pattern while living and eating to create lightness and balance.

Eat light, stay hydrated
If you normally eat meat, consider a lighter vegetarian diet for five days with an emphasis on organic fruits and vegetables and fresh juices. Concentrate on steamed vegetables and whole fresh fruit. Eliminate all refined sugar, refined carbohydrates (such as white rice and white bread), processed foods, and foods high in fat. Eat only small amounts of whole-grain carbohydrates. The key is to keep meals small and simple to give your bodily systems a break.

While detoxifying, it is critical to stay hydrated in order to flush toxins and waste out of your system. Drink at least eight glasses of water daily. Ayurveda recommends drinking plenty of gingerroot tea to help purify the body and boost your digestive system. You may also want to include fresh fruit juices in the morning, mixed fruit and vegetable juices during the day, and vegetable juices in the evening. If possible, prepare them using fresh organic produce.

Sweat it out
Exercise is a cornerstone in a detoxifying program. The increased heat and sweat generated through exercise helps to purify and detoxify your body. Take hot baths or go to a sauna or steam room to encourage the removal of toxins through your skin.

Ease back to your regular diet
Always end your cleanse with a gentle transition by gradually reintroducing foods into your diet that are more difficult to digest such as meat, nuts, starchy vegetables, and whole grains.

The above suggestions are general guidelines for purification and detoxifying. There are hundreds of different specific cleansing and detoxifying plans available. For more information on the Ayurvedic detoxification program, panchakarma, refer to Grow Younger, Live Longer by Deepak Chopra, MD, and The Wisdom of Healing by David Simon, MD.

Rejuvenate with Amalaki
Amalaki (Emblica officinalis), also known as Indian gooseberry, is considered the best herbal medicine for rejuvenation in Ayurveda. This valuable herb is one of the richest natural sources of antioxidant vitamins; its juice possesses almost 20...
