Unless you’ve been living under a rock, a term you have probably been inundated with off-late when it comes to diet plans and a healthy lifestyle is ‘detoxification’. So what is all the fuss and frenzy about this detoxification which has found a permanent place in the millennials’ and gen z dictionary? Let’s try to find this out by asking ourselves some questions first
Have there been times when you constantly felt weak, heavy, sluggish, or exhausted?
Do you often experience a bad taste in the mouth, joint ache, bloating, or bad breath?
If the answer to these questions is Yes, then this might be a sign of accumulated toxins (also known as ‘ama’ in Ayurveda) in your body. These are often characterized by a thick, white coating on the tongue, irregular bowel movements, foggy thinking, or sluggishness after meals.
This can be caused by a variety of factors that include increased pollution levels and the general urban lifestyle which bring with it a plethora of evils – namely stress and fatigue, skin-related issues, sleep disorder, susceptibility to infections/allergies, bloating, menstrual disorders and so on.
This is where detoxification becomes relevant as it aids in removing these toxic elements from your body, and avoiding the diet that is considered unhealthy. Although, it’s imperative to understand that detoxification cannot be completed by only dietary changes but should be complemented with an overall lifestyle change.
Now after knowing all the details, dive into the journey of detoxification to improve your lifestyle by using natural and ayurvedic products, here is a super-easy Ayurvedic routine you can follow to get started with your detoxification journey.
Begin your morning with a glass of fresh wheatgrass juice which makes an excellent Ayurvedic herb for detox. Wheatgrass Juice is high in chlorophyll content that is responsible for detoxification and a rich source of potassium and magnesium. It aids in improving blood circulation and regenerating the liver- the main organ responsible for detoxification.
It also improves overall metabolism due to a high amount of fibre, B complex vitamins, and vitamin C. Not just that, wheatgrass juice also contains anti-inflammatory & anti-oxidant properties that relieve stiffness and pain in joints. A perfect start to the day indeed.
However, ensure that the wheatgrass you get is of pure and authentic quality especially because it can vary a lot in different regions and also depends on the extraction process. Kapiva sources have organically grown Wheatgrass and cut it 8 days after the irrigation (instead of the usual 12-15 day timeline). This is to retain the maximum chlorophyll content and ensure the highest quality and efficacy of our wheatgrass.
Start your workday with a breakfast rich in herbs like amla, turmeric, beetroot, and wild honey to cleanse and support your liver. Alternatively, you can go for a healthy Ayurvedic porridge infused with such herbs to keep you energized for the day ahead. Infused with 3 immunity-boosting herbs namely Amla, Tulsi, and Turmeric to optimize immune responses, you can also try the Kapiva Masala Supergrain Mix Immunity that has 1.5x more protein and 2.5x higher fibre than 100g of poha, upma, and oatmeal.
Staying hydrated is the key to release toxins and boost detoxification of your body. Adding a cup of refreshing herbal tea, like kahwah tea to your routine can cleanse the digestive system and improve metabolism.
Regular drinking of Kawah tea also aids in burning fat and prevents the deposition of cholesterol in blood vessels, therefore reducing the risk of heart diseases. You can also try the Kapiva Organic Kashmiri Kahwah which is extracted from the lush meadows and mountains of Kashmir and is enriched with the goodness of locally sourced almonds, cardamom, clove, and cinnamon.
It’s not just the diet and habits that affect your health. Often ignored, a vital aspect that also impacts your inner state is your outer environment. Go on a decluttering spree of your room and wardrobe to detoxify your environment and see for yourself how it makes you feel great!
Last but not least, end your day with a glass of Triphala juice made from the trinity of Amla, Haritaki, and Bahera. It is a traditional Ayurvedic remedy to relieve digestive issues and flush out toxins from the intestines! You can also try Kapiva Triphala Juice which is extracted from dry, raw herbs to maximize its benefits.
To sum it up It’s not only your outer body that requires regular cleansing but your insides too. It is imperative to keep your internals clean and healthy. And that is where regular detoxification of your system becomes integral. Following the above routine would make your detox journey a bit easier as well as efficient.
