RESET, REPLENISH, RENEW!
It’s that time of year again. The seasons are starting to change and it’s almost time to assist our bodies in making those changes and setting ourselves up for a healthy winter season. Now, more than ever, it seems our best defense for our body is a strong immune system. In the summer heat builds up in the tissues of our body and begins to dry things out. As we move into cooler temperatures our body tends to produce excess mucous in order to fight against that dryness. The excess mucous becomes a breeding ground for bacteria and viruses to take over. When we take the time to do a cleanse it allows us the opportunity to flush the excess heat, mucous, and toxins that have built up in our bodies. The community cleanse utilizes the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda in order to help detoxify the body and reboot the digestive system, and going through the process with a community of others makes it all that much easier to get through it successfully. It is not a time of starvation or deprivation, we eat three (or four) meals each day and take specific herbs to assist the process of releasing toxins. It is a systematic two-week process that starts with preparing your body to go through the cleansing process (a four-day initial phase), doing the main cleanse (seven days), and then restoring your body to get back to eating your regular diet (a three-day reset phase). It is designed to be a two-week cleanse, but it can be customized to the length of time that you are able to commit to. If this timing doesn’t work for you, this can be flexible as well.
Callie Stolz, C.A.S., P.K.S., Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist and Pancha Karma (cleansing) Specialist, will be leading this two-week community cleanse. There will also be yoga detox classes offered in combination with the cleanse in order to assist in the process as well as additional support via zoom for those participants near or far!
What it includes: one digestive herbal formula (specific to your needs), four cleansing and rejuvenating herbal formulas, seven days’ worth of the Ayurvedic cleansing food, other recipes, a booklet of information on the step-by-step process, weekly meetings and daily email support through the process. We will meet the week prior to distribute all of the items needed for the cleanse and have a meeting about the details (if the designated time doesn’t work for you other arrangements can be made). All meetings will be possible to join via zoom.
