So there are a lot of different cleansing techniques out there, fasting, juicing, raw foods etc etc, finding the one that’s right for you can sometimes feel completely overwhelming. If you really just want to give your body a break, hit the reset button on your digestive system, and do a short detox without a lot of fuss, this is the cleanse for you. The process is simple, straightforward, easy to follow, and it’s only three days long (choose to do more or less), making it not too much of a struggle for most people.
What exactly is Ayurveda I hear you ask…
Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing that has its origins in the Vedic culture of India..
More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life,Veda = science or knowledge). Ayurveda reminds us that health is the balanced and dynamic integration between our environment, body, mind, and spirit.
Recognizing that human beings are part of nature, Ayurveda describes three fundamental energies that govern our inner and outer environments: movement, transformation, and structure. Known in Sanskrit as Vata (Wind), Pitta (Fire), and Kapha (Earth), these primary forces are responsible for the characteristics of our mind and body. Each of us has a unique proportion of these three forces that shapes our nature. If Vata is dominant in our system, we tend to be thin, light, enthusiastic, energetic, and changeable. If Pitta predominates in our nature, we tend to be intense, intelligent, and goal-oriented and we have a strong appetite for life. When Kapha prevails, we tend to be easy-going, methodical, and nurturing. Although each of us has all three forces, most people have one or two elements that predominate.
For each element, there is a balanced and imbalance expression. When Vata is balanced, a person is lively and creative, but when there is too much movement in the system, a person tends to experience anxiety, insomnia, dry skin, constipation, and difficulty focusing. When Pitta is functioning in a balanced manner, a person is warm, friendly, disciplined, a good leader, and a good speaker. When Pitta is out of balance, a person tends to be compulsive and irritable and may suffer from indigestion or an inflammatory condition. When Kapha is balanced, a person is sweet, supportive, and stable but when Kapha is out of balance, a person may experience sluggishness, weight gain, and sinus congestion.
Got it? Basically the juices in the Go Organic Ayurvedic Cleanse are made with ingredients which are important to balance out the three dosha’s in your body. An important goal of Ayurveda is to calm a person’s ideal state of balance and offer interventions using diet, herbs and superfoods to reestablish balance. There’s Vatta – Pitta – Kapha all with individual juices made to balance each dosha.
We went with the 3 day cleanse however there are more or less day choices depending on how advanced you want to go. Each day of the cleanse is complete with 6 juices to get you through the day, all to be consumed within 2 hours of each other. Now the thought of consuming only 6 juices for 3 days was initially terrifying for me and I know is in general for a lot of people, but was completely surprised that by day 2 of the cleanse I was feeling quite full and no hunger pangs at all (which is saying something for a serial snacker like myself).
I, in particular struggle with bloating and I noticed this significantly diminished even by day 2. At the end of Day 3 I was feeling super energized and well rested and slightly disappointed to go back to solid food (again weird for someone who enjoys snacking every hour). I would recommend this for anyone who feels like smacking that body reset button and completing a short enjoyable juice cleanse.
Special shoutout to the Cashew Mylk juice which is number 6 each day, The sweet creamy blend which helps relax and soothe you right before bedtime. The mix of cashews, cardamom, raw organic honey and vanilla is absolute heaven!
