Detox Tips from Dr. Karavani
Looking for a few good tips and tricks for a physical and mental detox treatment? Dr. Ilan Karavani is personally enormously dedicated to detoxifying and wants to encourage others to a start detoxing successfully.
A good detox always begins with a medical examination and an evaluation of the digestion, sleep patterns, heart, lung and blood pressure.
There are three cornerstones of physical detoxification: digestion, breathing and heart function and sleep. A useful tip: eat less and to simply avoid sugars, saturated fats and animal proteins. Eat more fruits and vegetables! A proper adjustment of the diet according to your body type is very important.
Furthermore, lots of sleep is a must. It is useful to avoiding psychotropic drugs and sleeping pills, which undermine the natural sleep cycle. Another tip to detoxify physically is to breathe deeply and slowly to get more oxygen into the bloodstream. Also exercise is a must: this can boost your heart function and blood flow.
The oldest detox might be Ayurvedic Panchakarma *, applied by the Indians. Thousands of years of experience have elevated this treatment to a true purification. During this course you will live five weeks in strict isolation in which massage, dietary changes, colonics and a special sauna form the basis of Panchakarma. This is of course accompanied by a personal Ayurvedic diagnosis and a tailored plan.
Detox Juices are intended to relieve the intestinal function due to their liquid character, in order to recover the acid balance and particularly in order to administer the appropriate dose of vitamins and minerals. Good ingredients are green vegetables and fruits, lemon-and pineapple juice, blue and red fruits… Every intense color has its useful elements.
Try to get away from the daily routine in order to relieve the mind. This is possible by silent meditation, but in the West dynamic meditation is particularly applied. This means that we perform repetitive movements and so our thoughts will come to rest. Sports such as running, swimming, spinning, dancing, etc. are excellent repetitive actions that relieve the mind and detoxify us mentally. But also meeting friends and exchanging ideas is a good way to detoxify mentally. Painting the town red is okay to relax, but the alcohol is not really an aid to physical detoxification.
Swimming is the most prominent sport yogis recommend as an excellent exercise for both the relaxation of the mind as well as breathing and blood flow. Furthermore, the sun salutation, or surya namaskar is an excellent and brief exercise.
