During the first two days, start eating khichadi,
but alter the water proportion of the recipe so that you’re using 14 parts
water to 1 part beans, 1 part rice, and 1 part vegetables.On the third day, you can return to the
original recipe.This is to ease you
from fasting to consuming nutritional foods once again.
During this phase, it is essential that you reflect on your
experiences thus far of Pancha Karma.Many find that they are able to resolve many issues during the
rejuvenation phase of the cleanse and that they come out of Pancha Karma with a
new, fresh perspective and attitude.
Are you looking forward to participating in Pancha Karma, or
do you think this is a load of baloney?Tell me below!
The ayurvedic cleansing method, pancha karma, is extremely
helpful and beneficial to your body, as it flushes impurities out.
The ultimate goal of pancha karma preparation is to prepare
your body’s insides for the cleansing method itself.
The preparation begins one to three weeks before the actual
cleansing itself.You will need to
remove processed foods, stimulants, sweets, and dairy from your diet.One week before the cleanse, you will need to
further modify your diet and eat a diet of mostly veggies and whole
grains.This altered diet creates an
alkaline environment within your body, helping to support the cleansing process
and make it more effective.
The preparation phase can be furthered along with khichadi,
a stew that can be easily prepared.

After you participate in a cleansing ritual, it’s important
to perform ongoing maintenance.Cleansing, especially to those who follow ayurveda, is a lifestyle.
After the thirty days of cleansing with the Triphala
Rasayana and with your cleansing
diet, you can begin to incorporate heavier foods into your diet.Only do this if your digestive system permits
you to do so.Listen to your body—if it
is reacting negatively to the introduction of heavier foods, ease up.
Continue to eat fresh, pure foods regularly, and remember to
drink lots of water—warm, preferably.Rest often, exercise moderately, and remember to relax and meditate.
When the seasons change once again, ayurvedic followers
recommend that you begin another cleanse.
Do you participate in any sort of ongoing maintenance?
For those who practice ayrveda, cleansing is not something
that you simply do once or twice a year.There is a diet
involved, a lifestyle involved, and a routine is also involved.
The herbs Triphala and Tulsi combine to help cleanse the
human body and physiology.
The Triphala Rasayana can be taken by anyone and helps to
cleanse the body’s entire digestive tract.This helps to prevent more ama (toxic) build-up and also strengthens
In order to participate in a Triphala Rasayana, you
will need to take two to four pills with warm water approximately an hour
before you go to bed.Do this every day
for thirty days.If you wish to
participate in ongoing maintenance, you can take one to two pills per day year
Tulsi is an ayurvedic herb that helps to cleanse the system
from toxins that accumulate during the springtime including environmental
toxins and pollutions.Drinking tea that
has been infused with Tulsi
once or twice a day is recommended to keep your system balanced during the
Ayurveda uses the land and seed theory to explain how the
human body’s immunity works.Here’s how
the metaphor works:
The human body is the land, and infection and disease are
the seeds.Toxic ama as well as other
impurities till the soil, making it fertile and ideal for infection.In order to protect your body, you need to
flush the ama from your body.This will
help to prevent any infectious seeds from taking root and flourishing.

In a previous blog post, I talked about followers of
ayurveda who believe that ama (toxic matter) can become built-up in your
digestive system if you do not follow a strict diet or at least include
cleansing in your life.

Ayurveda is system of medicine that is traditional in India and has
begun to be practiced in other countries as a type of alternative
medicine.Ayurvedic healers are huge
proponents of internal cleansing.
To better understand ayurvedic healers, it’s important to
understand what this group of people believes with their Seed and Land
Theory.As I have explained before, when
your digestive process is not 100% efficient, partially digested food begins to
be left behind in your system and becomes toxic to your health.These toxins are referred to as ama in
Ama isn’t simply toxic in its existence; ayurveda followers
believe that ama disturbs the digestive flow and can essentially lead to toxic
build-up.This ama build-up allows
infections to thrive, leading to a overall unhealthy wellbeing.
It seems as though many cultures agree with this belief, as
is evident in previous blog posts.
