Detox Post-Christmas And New Year Celebrations
At the end of every year, we wrap up the past year indulging ourselves in various seasonal delicacies which start with the onset of Christmas and end with welcoming in the New Year. We end up overloading our systems with far too much-unwanted food and drink.
So here we can consider signing up for an Ayurveda Detox Plan
The hectic week and excess partying during the festivities leave one physically tired. During this tiring time, a hot oil massage can do wonders. Abhyanga is a warm oil massage, from the scalp to the feet that can exceedingly rejuvenate your body and mind. It is the best skincare routine too. Some Abhyanga methods also nourish and stimulate your body’s inner and outer organs, as the oil seeps into the tissues of the body to release the accumulated toxins and expel them out through the gut.
To do this effectively it must be done in a scientific and planned manner; for which one needs to plan a daily schedule that will slow down your system. Below are a few suggestions:
Avoid oily, spicy, cheesy, fermented foods.
