Healthy Lifestyle Practices to Help You Detox Daily*

How to Cleanse Body and Spirit Daily*

We all know the feeling of getting swept up in the constant movement of summer energy, and often having to put off our daily self-care rituals. After getting back from vacation or the holidays, our bodies, especially our digestive systems, often pay the price of consuming too much tasty food and drink. In this blog we will discuss simple ways to get back on track, and cleanse the body and spirit with regular practices you can incorporate every day.*

 Our DAILY 10 Blend is formulated to support this very things — helping you detox and adapt to daily stress.*

Tips for Cleansing Body, Mind and Spirit

Smoke Clearing

A nice way to start or end the day is with smoke clearing — something that can be done in a matter of seconds. Take a thoughtfully harvested herb like cedar or sage, light it and make sweeping motions around the limbs and the body. Use this practice to greet or close out each day.*

Use a Neti Pot

With poor air quality and airborne pathogens plaguing our world, it is important to clean the passage through which air travels into our bodies: the nose! Neti Kriya, or using a Neti Pot, is a nasal irrigation technique with yogic origins for purification. This technique removes dirt and mucous. Using warm distilled water and non-iodized salt, pour the solution into one nostril, tilting your head forward and to the side, letting it drip out from the opposite nostril. Once finished, give a blow through each nostril to get out any excess.*

Try Oil Pulling

Oil pulling is an Ayurvedic technique intended to pull toxins out of the mouth. Typically, a tablespoon of oil (coconut is common) is swished around the mouth for 20 minutes. Many have noticed whitened teeth and a fresher mouth, as well as an improvement to oral and overall health.*

Practice Nadi Shodhana

Also known as “alternate nostril breathing,” this yogic technique is used to rejuvenate the nervous and respiratory systems. Nadi Shodhana is typically practiced in the morning on an empty stomach for greatest benefits. Using your right thumb to close the right nostril, take a full breath, then use your right ring finger to close the left nostril and take another full breath. Continue alternating breathing through right and left nostrils.*

Tips to Improve Digestion and Cleanse the Gut*

Quit the Late Night Eating

When we eat late at night, we don’t give our bodies time to process and break down the nutrients. Our liver is working overtime to sort through that midnight meal when it should be resting while we sleep. This can cause sleep disturbances, weight gain, and overall digestive upset.*

Test Food Intolerances

Bloating can be a sign of inflammation from foods that our body doesn’t tolerate well or isn’t able to process. Try keeping a food diary or eliminating certain foods to see how your digestion changes based on what you consume. You might be surprised by what is causing digestive discomfort. Although eliminating some of our favorite foods, like wheat-based products, may not sound completely enticing, the long-term benefits may outweigh the initial negatives!*

Eat Mindfully

Our culture has become centered around fast food, quick service, and eating as you go. It is important to take time to make the food, smell the food, and get the salivary glands going to start the digestive process. Enjoying a meal that is organic, local and/or home cooked is not only beneficial for the body but also for the soul. Slow down and offer gratitude for what you are consuming. Include leafy greens, fermented foods, and fiber, and reduce processed foods and sugar.*

Manage Stress

Our brain and gut are connected, so when our bodies feel stress, our digestion does, too. Maybe you clench up and can’t go, or the opposite happens and you can’t seem to stop the flow. Take the time to support yourself with mental health days, stress relieving baths or herbal adaptogens such as Ashwagandha, or virtually any mushroom. These are known for promoting the body’s adaptation to stressors.*

Try a Daily Cleanse Supplement

Our DAILY 10 Tincture and CALM Tincture are excellent additions to your daily routine.* For more daily supplements, consider adding in some probiotics, or incorporating apple cider vinegar shots!
