Your daily detox routine

Lemon juice in warm water before breakfast is a powerful detox drink

After you have had 4 or 5 days of daily massage with warm oils to loosen toxins from the cells and to direct the flow of the toxins towards your intestinal track, you are ready for your next detox step.

1. Get enough rest. You may need more sleep while detoxifying. It's also important to go to bed early (before 10 p.m.) and get up early (before 6 a.m.) as both staying up late and sleeping in late can flood the shrotas with toxins.

2. Exercise each day. Gentle exercise such as Yoga asanas and walking can support detoxification by improving digestion and elimination, thereby moving toxins out of the body. Walking for twenty minutes or half an hour is ideal because it allows you to breathe deeply, purify the respiratory system and supply the cells with cleansing prana. Walking in the early morning especially helps move toxins out of the body. During the preparation for detox and the actual self-detox program, it's best to avoid strenuous exercise.

3. Massage daily. One of the most important purification procedures in Ayurveda is warm oil massage (abhyanga), and you can do it every day on your own. Abhyanga loosens impurities from the shrotas and tissues, allowing them to flow into the digestive tract, where they can be easily eliminated through the bowel. While you're detoxifying, take a little extra time with your morning massage, and you'll magnify the results by many times. 

Always follow your abhyanga with a warm (not hot) bath. Purifying Therapeutic Bath Salts, a blend of natural salts and the essential oils of Niaoli, Sandalwood and Eucalytpus, can be added to your bath to draw out the toxins. If you don't have time for a bath, a shower can substitute.

4.- Drink the detox teas during the day. 

5.- Do your pranayamas. Breath is an important element to move your energy and release toxins from your body. Practical awakening routine is suggested.

6.- Meditate 15 to 20 minutes twice a day. Sunrise and sunset.
