Ayurvedic Spring Cleanse

Ayurveda emphasises the importance of living in harmony with nature to achieve optimal health.

This involves understanding your own constitution and aligning your lifestyle with the seasonal rhythms of the natural world. Here are some general guidelines for the spring season:


SPRING Exercise

It's time to push yourself physically with activities like yoga, biking, or hiking in nature. Morning or evening exercise is ideal, but be mindful of your limits based on your constitution and check with an Ayurveda practitioner if needed.


SPRING Diet

As your appetite may decrease, gradually reduce heavy, oily, or fried foods and limit sweet, sour, and salty tastes.


Opt for light breakfasts of fresh fruit, and cooked grains, steamed or sautéed vegetables, salads, and sprouted beans and legumes for lunch and dinner.


Pungent, bitter, and astringent tastes are recommended, along with herbal teas like ginger and lemon, turmeric, fennel, and mint to support digestion and boost your immune system.


Have a look at my tips. An amazing choice would be a three day detox with kitchari. This traditional Indian dish is the ideal one to reboot your gut health.


SPRING Lifestyle

Stimulating routines are favoured, and daytime napping should be avoided.


Dress in colours like red, yellow, and orange to balance Kapha, and choose blues, greens, purples, and whites when it's warmer to balance Pitta.


Spring is the perfect time to try something new, socialize, and enjoy time with loved ones.
