21 Day Clean 4

/
21 day clean, purge, balance 30 March 2020 Day 4 (Clean 4) – Self-care: Cleaning health tips Welcome to Day 4 (Clean 4), – Self Care – Tongue, Ear and Nostrils conduits to a clear brain and health. Most of us follow a morning routine of brushing our teeth, blowing our noses, and washing to throw off the night and last vestiges of sleep. Ayurveda has always considered this an important self-care step to refresh the senses, protect the openings of the body and ensure health. Not only does it recommend brushing our teeth to get rid of the accumulation of secretions from digestion and the night, but recommends tongue scraping that removes any undigested food toxins and stimulates nerves and channels that keep digestion and taste working properly. If you don’t have a tongue scraper simply brushing the tongue vigorously stimulates these points and clears the tongue. Nasaya is cleansing of the nose to remove build-ups of mucus and involves introducing a mild saline solution into the nose which is snuffed in and expelled through the other nose or mouth. A simple method that provides most of the benefits is to simply cup your hand in the shower filling it with water, snuffing it into the nose and expelling it. This cleans the nose and refreshes it. A little oil can be applied to the little finger and inserted into the nose to lubricate the nostril during self-message which will lubricate and create a protective membrane for these sensitive tissue. This is known in Ayurveda to clean, protect, and maintain smell as well as removes certain toxins from the brain and increase brain clarity. When accompanied with Vagus nerve breathing (see clean 3) it provides many health benefits, reduces stress, and increase Prana (an element of life force) absorption. Many people remove excess ear wax and dirt from the ears with a cotton swap (careful of ear drum) in the morning which keeps the ear openings clean and functioning. Ayurveda like to occasionally perform more complete wax removal with candling or similar practices and recommends the application of a little oil with your morning self-message to seal the opening and protect the tissues. Try this for 21 days to see the effects first hand. Continue the practices from day 1 and 2 for the entire program to fully experience the benefits. Take Away (Clean 4): Hypercharge health with tongue, nostril and ear cleaning – clear brain and senses.

21 Day Clean 3

/
21 day clean, purge, balance 29 March 2020 Day 3 (Clean 3) – Self-care: Cleaning health tips Welcome to Day 3 (Clean 3), - Self Care – Importance of Sleep. Zaida got the importance of sleep on Friday as she found herself on a free afternoon feeling sleepy and actually surrendering to the urge to nap. She remarked I feel so tired; I now realize the importance of proper rest and often don’t allow that to myself. This gave me the opportunity to do a self-inventory of my sleep; and I realized I have been quite tired and need and want more rest that I am also giving to myself during our 21 day home retreat. Modern science says we all need about 7-9 hours of sleep to be really rested and most of us in modern times are lacking this by a significant amount. Ayurveda has recommended we sleep as dark approaches and wake at dawn or earlier. The Nobel Prize in medicine, 2017, reaffirmed this important principle as the circadian rhythms were recognized for their importance in retaining our health and vigor. Essentially our best sleep for cell rejuvenation and replacement occurs in sleep cycles 3 and 4 which occur in the first four hours of sleep and is optimal from 10 pm to 2 am. The next four hours of sleep moves to REM cycles (replacing sleep cycles 3 and 4) which help file and sort the day’s experiences leaving the brain un-cluttered. Waking a little before or at sunrise makes use of the active period of body expression (Vata in Ayurveda) where we are more mobile and active and wakeful. Waiting till sunrise and the next four hours is a slower, sluggish and sleepy period (Kapha) and you may find it is harder to get going. Make a pact to test the effects of early to bed before 10 pm and wake near sunrise for eight hours or more sleep over the next 21 days and get the best sleep possible. Medical science has found the vagus breath can help you sleep if you have a mild insomnia (might take several nights to kick in). To do vagus breathing: breathe deeply through the nose for a count of four, hold for count of two, breathe out for a count of four through the nose, and repeat for 8-12 cycles. Repeat as needed. Try this for 21 days to see the effects first hand. Continue the practices from day 1 and 2 for the the entire program to fulling experience the benefits. Take Away (Clean 3): Luxuriously sleep (in bed by 10am and wake at sunrise) to maximize health and vigor.

21 Day Clean 2

/
21 day clean, purge, balance 28 March 2020 Day 2 Self-care: Cleaning health tips Welcome to Day 2, the body thrives with a full body Abhayanga or self-message every morning. The process of messaging yourself stimulates the skin, blood vessels, tissues, lymphatic system, and invisible anatomy channels (meridians or nadi’s). It continues the body’s detoxification and cleansing both internally and through the skin itself. It also wakes up the whole body and mind gently stimulating organs and senses to a joyful or even blissful state. How to do a self massage: take a small amount of oil (if you know your Ayurvedic type use sesame for Vata, coconut oil for Pitta, and Olive or do dry skin brushing for Kapha) and rub briskly into the scalp and rub along the crown from front to back and front, the back of head, the back neck area, and along the perimeter of the crown. Continue on the face with more above the eyes along the sides of the eyes and down to ears and front of neck, along the sides of the nose draining the sinuses, and around the mouth. With more oil continue down each shoulder and arm moving lengthwise on the muscles and circular around the joints, work the palm and the webs between the fingers. Proceed to the chest and go circular around the breasts massaging deeply, under the armpit stimulate and knead the lymphatic’s, continue down the sides, and then work the belly and diaphragm in a circular motion releasing tension and emotion. From here continue down the front and back of the pelvis and massage the buttocks and genital regions well. Continue down each leg like you did for the arms and generously massage each ankle and work the bottom of the foot where a mini-map of all organs resides and are stimulated with massage. Be sure to press deeply between the toes and stimulate the webs. Finish your massage by holding the having-ness (or receiving) gate four fingers below the left palm by squeezing it with the right thumbs on the veins and the right fingers on the outer arm. Squeeze and hold while doing three deep complete breaths. Relax and enjoy. Please note this should flow from one section to the next relatively quickly and takes about 5 minutes total. Try this for 21 days to see the effects first hand. Take Away: Joy start your body and lymphatic’s with a self message each morning.

21 Day Clean 1

/
21 day clean, purge, balance 27 March 2020 Day 1 (Clean 1) Self-care: Cleaning health tips Welcome to Day 1 (Clean 1), the miraculous design of human digestion includes a natural detoxification period every day. The body is designed to assimilate food, absorb nutrients, and detoxify waste materials every day. And there is a natural cycle to this process. The first 8 hour cycle starts with the intake of food for assimilation roughly from 10 am to 6 pm each day. It then proceeds to breaking the food down into the components for absorption and utilization in the body from the last meal of the day roughly 6 pm to 2 am in the morning. The last phase is the removal of waste material or the body’s natural detoxification through the gastro-intestinal system, breath, and skin. If you are paying attention this means we should eat mostly from 10 am to 6 pm and not eat from 6 pm till morning (perhaps 10 am for best removal of wastes).  This is a little different than what most of us do, yet honors the body’s rhythm and results in better digestion (it following the science of Ayurveda, Natural Hygiene, and many other medical systems that integrate body, mind whole person practices). So what should we do in the morning if we are not eating a big South African breakfast? Start the day off with a cup of warm water and lemon. This helps flush the bowels and encourages the detoxification that is going on. It should help you have your first bowel movement of the day and let go of waste water. Clean the whole body (shower, brush, etc.). Then when you are ready eat a light breakfast of high water content foods (like fresh squeezed fruit or vegetable juices, fruit, oatmeal soaked overnight, etc.). Wait until 11 or twelve when the digestive fire is highest for concentrated foods. Try this for 21 days to see the effects first hand. Take Away: Clean 1 - Start the day with lemon and warm water and eat light high water content foods until 11-12 noon.
