Yoga and Detoxification

When I learned as a naturopath I always said when someone asked me advice: first to detoxify before any cure or treatment begins. An overloaded body cannot accommodate healing herbs, oils, or treatments. So the basic is body detoxification, and nowadays it would be necessary to clean the many harmful substances regularly. I don’t want detox cures to teach now, everyone can find many practices for yourself easily on the web. But I mention the useful advice as to any course of treatment to choose to drink a big glass clear warm water on an empty stomach in the morning, is vital.

Anyone who has seriously tried to diet or to go through a detoxification cure certainly faced with the fact: is debilitating the body and is physically difficult the first few days. The Yoga can easily be done these days, and even the effect on the metabolism and circulation may increase, accelerate the detoxification process, and can possible constipation be avoided too. The strenuous exercises leave it in the first few days, but when you feel energetic enough to practice the Sun Salutation up to 12x.

Finally, to mention some truly relaxing and enhancing metabolism and digestive yoga practice in the following order:

  • Shoulderstand or Sarvangasana
  • Plow or Halasana
  • Wheel or Chakrasana
  • Sitting forward bend or Paschimottanasana
  • Cobra pose or Bhujangasana
  • Locust pose or Salabhasana
  • Bow pose or Dhanurasana
  • Child Pose or Balasana
  • Sitting twist or Ardha Matsyendrasana
  • Triangle or Trikonasana

These practices are effective in endocrine glands and created intra-abdominal pressure, possibly combined with abdominal breathing are massaging effect, thus improving the metabolism, helping digestion, and massaging the intestines. So I recommend this sort of practice with warm-heartedly for the dieting and who try to detoxify the body through digestion.

Of course, the relaxation and meditation are indispensable, and these, in addition, it recharges in these days.
