The Juicy Yogi Detox Program
I developed the 5 day Juicy Yogi Detox Program to address a need that I see exiting in urban areas such as Los Angeles. There is a palpable consciousness around living a healthy lifestyle and a desire to occasionaly cleanse and detox the system, especially in the Yogic communities. But, people are busy. Period.
Often, the chosen route is a juice fast/flush because it's quick and easy (you can just bring your daily juices to work) and trendy. Yes, juice is great and it can be healthy to include in daily life and during a cleanse. BUT, taking in only astringing cold juice all day can be very vitiating to the system (hello, Vata). Attempting to focus and also continue working and excercising during this time is completely counter-indicated.
My 5 day Juicy Yogi Detox Program is based upon the prinicipals of Ayurveda's traditional cleansing process of Pancha Karma. It consists of 5 days of focused traditional Ayurvedic detoxification therapies, and incorporates the healing and cleansing benefits of modern juicing. The result is a deep detox rooted in Ancient Wisdom, yet progressive in its application and outstanding in its efficiency.
I will personally lead you through your process, tracking your progress with toungue and pulse assessment during our daily intakes. You will embark upon a journey both healing and enjoyable… a rare combination in the detox arena.
Each day commences with a decadent Ayurvedic massage using warm therapeutic herbal oils, stimulating the lymphatic system and encouraging the flushing of toxins from all layers of tissue. The organic oil is a traditional herbal formula incorporating over 80 Ayurvedic herbs and is used specifically for detoxification.
Alternating Shirodhara and Nasya follow your massage, calming the mind and clearing your "prana pathways." (Please see SERVICES list for more detail on these therapies).
The day completes with an herbal steam, a vital component to a thorough cleansing protocal that no detox should ever be without. The hot steam enables the opening of all the channels in the body, allowing the accumulated toxins to release their sticky hold and flow freely to their exit pathways: the digestive tract and the pores of your skin.
During your 5 day journey you will be eating a nourishing mono-diet of Ayurvedic superfood, kitchari. This is a completely balanced Indian dish that is both alkalizing and grounding (and delicious!)– keeping you well nourished and stable during your cleanse. No need to fear the spacy lightheadedness, dizziness and inability to focus that is an unfortunate side effect of most modern approaches to cleansing.
A balanced purgative herbal formulation is also included into your program and will be given to you daily with specific instructions for usage.
So what makes this detox so Juicy? The Juice! Incorporated into this traditional program is fresh cold-pressed juice. The formula was developed specifically for detoxifying the entire system, without being overly heating or cooling, and is packed full of the vitamins and nutrients (and prana!) that your body needs during this time to remain strong. Digestive stimulation, lymphatic flushing and diuretic ingredients make this the perfect detox formulation.
