Digestion Reset

 

Every so often it's a good idea to re-set your digestion. This allows the body to digest and eliminate any impurities that are accumulating from incomplete digestion, or those  special treat times you have been enjoying!

  • Vatas reset your digestion monthly
  • Pittas reset your digestion fortnightly
  • Kaphas reset your digestion once a week
How to reset your digestion

1. Starting the evening before, have a warm and light evening meal using foods from the light cleansing food lists:

Drink lemon and honey in lukewarm water to start your day. Place the juice of ½ a lemon and 1 tsp of honey into a lukewarm glass of water and stir. Then drink to help cleanse the palate and to awaken digestion and elimination.

Or if you have a tendency for constipation or strong indigestion take one half cup of aloe vera juice. (Do not take the gel, which is much stronger and not whole-leaf aloe and is not recom­mended by Ayurveda).

Or if you have a tendency for loose bowel bring one cup of pure water (filtered or spring water) to a boil. Let cool down to drinkable temperature. Add juice of an entire small lime or half of a large lime and drink.
