Ayurveda and the importance of spring cleanse for body and mind
According to Ayurveda, spring is the season for growth. Mother Natures wakes up from her slumber and SPROUTS! Energy moves upward and spring is considered the “king of seasons”!
In many parts of the country, spring means snow melting. We make this transition from cold, icy winter ice and snow to hot summer through the sticky, wet transition of snow melting. Similarly, accumulated kapha dosha can show as liquefaction in the body, causing allergies, spring colds and runny noses.
Spring cleanse is a method for cleansing and purifying the body of excess doshas and accumulated toxins. A gentle cleanse is nourishing and has a dramatic effect even if introducing techniques of Ayurveda into a person’s life. Subtle cleanse consists of mind-body care techniques and optional 3-5 days of kitchari mono-diet. The Ayurvedic goal for spring cleanse is simply to create easy digest for body, and mind.
Offering the body rest and rejuvenation during this seasonal change prepares our physical and mental self for positive growth in spring. Learn about living your life in balance by becoming familiar with Ayurvedic techniques suitable for you and helping you achieve your full potential.
