With the fast-paced lifestyle we currently carry our body and mind, they need a break, known as detox.
Why you should cleanse and detox your body
Every day we add toxins to our body through what we eat, drink, breathe, products that we apply to the skin, etc. And although our body has a system to eliminate them (lymph, blood, liver, kidneys, colon …), the truth is that over the years they accumulate to a greater or lesser extent depending on the lifestyle we have. This accumulation can cause fatigue, digestion problems, and even more serious diseases.
Our own system is quite effective, but to compensate for bad eating habits, lack of exercise and stress, it is advisable to include some detox plan.
From my point of view, it is much more effective to introduce a program in our lifestyle that supports the detoxification mechanisms that our body already has.
What detox programs exist?
There are several detoxification programs, the best known is fasting or following a certain diet for some days, but I recommend incorporating a yoga routine into daily life so that the process becomes a practice that supports the natural detoxification process of our body.
I also recommend following dietary guidelines as part of the daily routine to prevent the accumulation of toxins and promote the elimination of them. This includes fruits and vegetables as a base o your diet, especially tomatoes, lemons, celery, asparagus, apples, pomegranates, garlic, onions, ginger, beetroots, artichokes, parsley and lots of water to flush the toxins out!
Eliminate toxins through yoga
How does it work?
The yoga sequence that I recommend supports the natural process of detoxification, compressing the internal organs, increasing circulation, and relaxing the body and mind, thus reducing the level of stress.
It will be a combination of asanas that include, twists, forward bends, inversions and restorative postures
- Twists compress the organs of the abdomen area, which facilitates the digestive process and the elimination of waste. In addition, they also help the blood circulation.
- Forward bends also contribute to the improvement of digestion
- Inverted postures favor the stimulation of blood circulation and lymph.
- Restorative postures stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, which helps relaxation and consequently stress reduction, which will allow the organs to work more efficiently.
