Rejuvenate mind and body with New Year detox

Detoxing the ayurvedic way, by Sebastian Pole, Ayurvedic practitioner and herbal director of Pukka Herbs

Overindulgence during the festive season can leave many of us feeling bloated, lethargic and ready to contemplate a period of self-restraint. While the body has an innate tendency to maintain a healthy balance, if its natural detoxifying functions become congested or tired, we can become imbalanced.

Cleansing the body does not need to be an uphill struggle. Detoxification is an everyday activity for the body and can be encouraged with a healthy diet that facilitates our natural cleansing functions.

Detoxification that rejuvenates the body and mind is one of the key principles of Ayurveda, the ancient, yet highly accessible, Indian healthcare system. Removing accumulated toxins from the body by means of cleansing foods, herbs and massage provides the basis of an effective and easy to follow Ayurvedic detox, resulting in improved digestion, energy levels, sleep patterns and skin appearance.

Using Ayurvedic principles and practice, herbal specialist Pukka Herbs has created a range of highly effective natural treatments for detoxifying the body. All Pukka Herbs’ products are 100 per cent organic, with no synthetic ingredients, so the detox process can be achieved without any additional toxins entering your system.

Gentle everyday detox

Drinking Pukka’s delicious and award winning Detox tea, a blend of aniseed, fennel and cardamom, will help to flush toxins from the kidneys, blood and digestive system, while Cleanse tea, with nettle, fennel and aloe vera, will aid purification of the skin and liver.

Organic Bio Nutrient Clean Greens is an innovative and powerful blend of twelve chlorophyll-rich green foods, including Spirulina, Kale Sprouts and Wheat Grass Juice, to naturally support the body’s ability to cleanse itself. It contains additional digestive herbs such as ginger, fennel and peppermint to assist with the absorption of nutrients. Clean Greens can be taken daily for long term support to help the body cope better with our polluted environment and diet.

Protecting the liver and cleansing the digestive tract

Nourishing Guduchi & Neem formula helps to regulate, cleanse and protect the liver from the effects of poor diet, excess alcohol, stress and pollution. This traditional Ayurvedic formula helps the liver to release bile and clear inflammatory heat.

Triphala Plus is based on the famous Triphala formula with an extra boost of Psyllium Seed, Linseed and Fennel. It acts as a colon tonic helping to remove toxins. Take with Guduchi & Neem for a deep and nourishing cleanse. One pot of each will give a 2 week reinvigoration.

Ayurveda also recommends eating a simple diet during the detox, free of processed foods, sugar, wheat, dairy, coffee and alcohol. Drinking lots of hot water throughout will help to cleanse your insides.
