Spring is the ideal time for a Cleanse programme

Ayurveda has a lot to offer when it comes to detoxification and rejuvenation. Panchakarma - (five actions) is a deep cleans which is usually conducted in a retreat setting and involves a number of treatments with remarkable results. Even an Ayurveda retreat might sound lovely but not immediately available, we can start the cleanse at home with a range of daily lifestyle principles that can be easily incorporated to achieve long lasting results. 

The ancient science of Ayurvedic medicine recommends tongue scraping as a daily practice. There are many benefits as far as oral health, and overall physical, mental, and spiritual health. Since the oral cavity is one of the main gateways between your mind/body and the environment, maintaining the health of this connection is critical to general well-being.

By removing the coating and stimulating the tongue this helps to balance the heavy and dulling qualities of Kapha dosha in your physiology. A copper tongue scraper can be be purchased online. 

If you would like a personalised cleansing program designed for your needs, please book in for an Ayurvedic consultation. 

Your health profile will be discussed and your individual constitution (dosha) will be assessed. Traditional Ayurvedic practices such as reading your pulse, tongue diagnosis, and an examination of your nails, skin, eyes, voice, gait and body structure will be incorporated. 

Based on the Ayurvedic analysis a personal treatment plan will be designed which may include dietary and lifestyle recommendations as well as herbal medicines and body therapies specific to your needs.
