Begin your spring detox. What to eat and what to avoid?
Would you like to do a spring detox and you think about which method is the right one for you? I prepared instructions for you on how to best cleanse your body in the current modern time.
Most common types of detoxification
Hunger strikes, drinking salt water, daily enemas or detoxification supplements. Modern detoxification is often needlessly brutal. It unnecessarily puts stress on the body and washes valuable microflora or mineral basis out from it.
If someone decides to do a hunger strike they should have a good reason for it (for example having a serious disease). In this case a hunger strike can really help with healing.
Body doesn’t have to spend any energy on digestion and can fully focus on its regeneration.
But if a hunger strike is part of a regular detoxification, that it happens at least 1x a year and after the hunger strike people come back to their old way of eating, it only puts stress on the body. In that case it’s better to forget about detoxification.
Drinking salt water
Sankhapraksalana is a yogic method of cleansing. It’s done by drinking warm salt water and then doing special exercises to move it down through the digestive tract. Soon the water will wash the stomach and intestines and then it’s rinsing it for some time. So there’s clear salt water coming out of your rectum.
The whole process is accompanied by pains of various intensity… it is similar to a weak gall bladder seizure. At a certain point of the process people see only in black and white, as if colors are lost. After the end and taking in sweet water everything slowly comes back to normal.
This Indian cleansing method certainly shouldn’t be a part of a regular yearly detoxification, if you intend to:
- Continue doing same things
- Eat what you used to eat
- Live like you have lived until now
TIP: Do you struggle with health issues that you would like to get rid of? Try techniques of holistic and Chinese medicine
Ideal for a new beginning
Sankhapraksalana is something like a life turning point. If the existing life doesn’t satisfy you anymore, you changed your values and you want to draw a line under everything up to now, then do Sankhapraksalana and change everything.
Otherwise you will stress the body again. Into a clean digestive track come hard to digest and chemically loaded foods and create more harm there than before the cleansing.
Dirty but also partially protective layer is gone. And if some chemical gets into the body, it touches a raw nerve. At the same time microflora is missing too, which might not survive such a thorough washout.
Enema is an irrigation of intestines with warm salt water. It’s much more gentle to the body than Sankhapraksalana, but it shouldn’t be done frequently. One for the start of a detoxification is enough, if there’s a reason. That can be constipation or a very smelly stool.
I wouldn’t repeat it more times. Internal environment of the body is thoroughly closed and it’s for a good reason.
Natural detoxification supplements
The less of them, the better. And if possible in a form which can be found in nature. It is for example:
- Flax seed
- Green clay
TIP: Support detoxification with cleansing of meridians. Techniques of holistic and Chinese medicine will take care of it.
How to best cleanse your body in Europe in 21st century
Our main problem is:
- Food full of chemicals
- Meat from factory farming
- Omnipresent wheat cultivated in a way that it attacks our body
- Too big portions
- Hardly digestible combinations
- Empty calories without true nutrition
So what to do about it?
What to eat for breakfast
In the morning the body is cleaning, start your day with a tea for lungs and large intestine. Usually within 30 minutes after drinking you go to the toilet. Then drink clean water. Drink it until a great, but a really great hunger comes. Have a grain mash, thick vegetable soup or rye sourdough bread with a legume spread for breakfast.
If you want to eat only fruits, then whole fruits, not smoothies. Digestion starts in the mouth, saliva contain important digestive enzymes and by chewing the amount of them that is needed is released into the food. Eat sufficiently.
Don’t do anything else while eating, focus only on the breakfast. After you finish eating, drink a tea for pancreas and then don’t eat ANYTHING until lunch. Anything at all. Stomach will create juices specifically for the amount and composition of food you just ate. If you will then eat little of something more, you will disturb the digestion process.
A tea for pancreas also contains digestive enzymes and makes sure that food will be perfectly digested even if pancreas isn’t fully okay. Doing this makes sure that there won’t be new toxins created and they won’t flood the body again. When your breakfast is digested (roughly in one or two hours after eating it), drink clean water again.
What to eat for lunch
Eat lunch again when big hunger comes. Eat a simple vegan meal or vegetable salads based on your appetite. Again wash it down with the tea for pancreas. Drink water again one or two hours later.
What to eat for dinner
Eat dinner based on your hunger. It can be any vegan food or salad. A great one is cabbage salad or celery salad.
Don’t eat anything between meals. If you get a big appetite for something, eat some fruits or vegetables. Whole, not juices. Drink a cup of tea before going to bed to support digestion.
What foods to avoid
During fast don’t consume:
- Green or black tea
- Cakes, pies or croissants
- Desserts and ice cream
- Baked goods from wheat
- Milk, cream or kefir
- Cheese, butter and cottage cheese
- Candy, chocolate and cocoa
- Chips, fries, fried and roasted foods
What foods to eat
- Rice and vegetables
- Buckwheat and millet grains
- Oat, corn, rice, millet grain and buckwheat mashes
- Vegetable and legume soups, legume main dishes
- Fruits and vegetables
- Seeds and nuts (in small portions and always with food, never separately)
- Herbal teas
- Cooked and stewed foods
- Any vegan food
TIP: You can make pancakes, burgers, stuffed peppers, mince, goulash or sirloin in cream sauce in vegan form. Simply everything you want can be done in vegan form. Today you can find many recipes on the internet.
Don’t forget about movement
During detoxification movement is very important. You can include fast walking onto a hill or light jogging. At least every third day. Walking or running 2-3 km is enough.
Forget about going to gym. For cleaning the body dynamic movement is important, which will loosen your body. Movement in fresh air.
Don’t forget about stretching or yoga. Do this every single day for at least 30 minutes.
What to add to detoxification
If you suffer from constipation even during the third day of detoxification, apply 1 enema. You can mix 0,5 l of water with temperature 37°C with a teaspoon of pure salt. Pour it into an irrigator and apply.
You can also use various detoxification supplements. For example take chlorella or lepicol according to instructions. When it comes to flax seeds, I recommend 1 tbs on an empty stomach, chew it and wash it down with water. If you will use herbal tea for large intestine, then take it after you drink it, but before having a breakfast.
