Seasonal Cleansing

Detox

Ayurveda places great importance on detoxification during the transitional seasons of spring and fall and considers this the most important time to clear ama from the tissues and build ojas. In spring, as the warmer weather melts the winter freeze, the same is happening within you, making it easier for the body to eliminate ama. Cleansing in the Spring will strengthen your immunity, prevent seasonal spring allergies and prevent weight gain. Fall cleansing will support your immunity and prevent flu, colds and strengthen the digestive fire and prevent vata type challenges.

DIY At-home Cleanse

In this comprehensive eBook, Christina has included everything you need to know about Ayurvedic cleansing.

Does a reset towards health and good habits sound like something you need?

Good health begins in our gut and relies on our ability to fully metabolize the nutritional, emotional, and sensory information that we ingest. When our digestive energies, known as agni’s, are healthy, we create strong tissues, eliminate waste products efficiently, and have stable mind emotions – we are naturally flowing with enthusiasm and joy! When agni is strong, we also produce a subtle essence called ojas. Ojas is our inner sap and is the basis for mental clarity, physical strength, and good immunity. Certain foods, like trans-fats, alcohol, and sugar can lead to digestive issues, inflammation, and cancer. These foods also weaken our agni, and create an accumulation of toxic residue known as ama. Some indications of ama are weight gain, allergies, congestion, headaches, fatigue, chronic pain, low energy, poor memory, brain fog, moodiness, acne, dry, itchy or inflamed skin.

I have found tremendous benefits in the Ayurvedic approach of using food as medicine and gentle cleansing to re-igniting my digestive fire and incorporate healthy habits during the change of the seasons. This gentle cleanse ensures pure, nutrient-rich food enters the bloodstream while supporting optimal liver, gall bladder, and colon function.

An annual ayurvedic cleanse will leave you feeling satisfied, eliminate toxins from the tissue, decrease stress, elevate energy, increase ojas, restore mental clarity and creativity, give you youthful, radiant skin, improve digestion, and bring balance between mind, body, and spirit!

When I first came to see Christina I had just begun studying Ayurveda myself and was still inexperienced in the practices. Christina was very helpful. In the 8 months or so that I met with her, she gave me personalized changes one small step at a time. I believe this is the reason that the practices stuck and truly became “lifestyle changes” instead of fads or overwhelming goals. In those 8 months I began sleeping better, I cut out my heavy workout routine for a more sattvic routine and lost 35 pounds without “dieting”. I also found an inner peace that led to more energy, a healthier relationship, marriage, and a baby, and my daily schedule became much less strenuous. My overall health improved and I feel like a new woman.

I am eternally grateful to Christina for her generosity, encouragement, and love.

It was just about a year ago when I decided that I wanted to learn more about Ayurveda and commit myself to live an Ayurvedic lifestyle. I had been practicing yoga for 14 years and Christina was one of my teachers at the Bikram Yoga Studio in Elk Grove.

I clearly remember having a casual conversation with Christina about my health and how fed up I had become with so many aspects of the western approach to medicine. I told Christina that I wanted to be healthy, to live a more balanced life, to lose weight, and eventually become pregnant and have a happy, healthy baby and that I wanted her help.

Christina agreed to teach me the timeless wisdom of Ayurveda and about six months ago our consultations began. I met with Christina every week to discuss the who, what, when, where, why, and how of my eating habits and gradually learned to implement the guidelines for healthy eating.

As a school teacher, I am constantly under a lot of stress and, prior to practicing Ayurveda, I was sick all of the time, each month with something new. The past six months of my life have been very stressful and full of changes, but I have not felt this well since I started teaching seven years ago. I normally experience severe allergies and get every little bug that travels through the bodies of my first-grade classroom, but this year…nothing. I even lost 15 pounds!

Just before I started to see Christina I had been told by a doctor that I needed to go back on birth control pills to treat my Poly-Cystic Ovarian Syndrome and that I would need to go to an infertility clinic if I ever wanted to become pregnant. That doctor couldn’t have been more wrong! With the help of Ayurvedic practices and herbs, my cycle became regular and now I’m expecting my own little bundle of joy in the winter!

Christina has been able to help me channel the power I have within my self to take control of my life, connect with the divinity that surrounds me, and be truly at peace with where I am, right here, right now.

I am so grateful to have had Christina’s help and support on this journey into divine health through Ayurveda. I couldn’t have done it without her! If you are committed to yourself and creating health and healing that is physical, mental, and spiritual, I wholeheartedly recommend learning more about Ayurveda with Christina!

I came to Christina with various physical and emotional ailments. I’ve always considered myself in good physical shape. I’ve tried to eat healthily and exercise regularly. My Bikram Yoga practice is at least 3 to 4 times a week. I had decided to go completely vegetarian and noticed my energy level was not what it used to be. I was tired often. I was also experiencing listlessness and anxiety on a regular basis.

I decided to give Ayurveda a try. I consulted with Christina and met with her regularly once a week. She suggested various dietary and lifestyle changes based on my Doshic balance. She encouraged me to implement these practices slowly but steadily. The changes in me seemed slow at first, but I’ve always been the impatient type. My emotional mood was the slowest to change. I noticed physical improvements within two weeks. I wasn’t as tired and my energy was more on an even keel. While before I tended to run around madly doing everything and then completely breakdown for a couple of days, I noticed I had constant sustained energy – I was working and relaxing on a more regular basis. My husband and children were pointing out that I didn’t have those “frazzled” days anymore.

As my physical changes happened, my emotional mood improved. I became more even-keeled on an emotional level as well. Before, I would have emotionally and mentally “foggy” days, where I would feel like I was just struggling to get through the day. I attributed this to PMS – but soon noticed that they were happening almost every day of the month!

After my practice of Ayurveda became more consistent, I noticed I had fewer of these “foggy” days. My mind was alert and my emotions stayed more balanced – things that would normally upset me or tend to uproot my day became just blips that could be smoothed out.

I feel more in charge of my life now. Consultations with Christina and the Ayurvedic knowledge has empowered me to understand when I feel “dis-ease” in my body. I know how to modify my diet and soothe myself through meditation and other techniques to come back to balance. Ayurveda to me is a practice just like Bikram Yoga. I might have great days and some bumpy days. But if I return to my practice and focus on it, I can smooth out the bumps and continue to be healthy and in charge for the rest of my life.

I love Christina’s style – she has been a consistent counselor, friend, and guide in my learning of Ayurveda. She empowers me to understand my own ailments and how to fix them through the practice of Ayurveda. I am very blessed to have her in my life. My knowledge of Ayurveda has continued to grow and I continue to practice it every day. I realize that I know myself inside and out more now through my regular practice. I watch my body and mind slowly change and respond to my practice and it is incredibly rewarding to have this experience!

The knowledge that Christina has bestowed upon me has been great. I truly view food and how and when I eat in a completely different way. I have learned to identify an imbalance and am armed to make the choices to bring me back into balance. I have seen an increase in focus, a decrease in bloating, and more efficient digestion. A big bonus has been exposure to wonderful new food and recipes. I am excited to continue on my ayurvedic path and continue to learn more and more with every consultation!

When I first started this Ayurvedic lifestyle, I was a frantic, monkey-minded person. I didn’t feel safe and felt angst about everything from my workday to worldly events…and, most of the things causing me angst, I didn’t even have control over…that is except to keep my mind spinning worrying about them.

Along with a monkey brain, my digestion was sporadic and uncomfortable. Initially, at the beginning of this practice, I had to eat grounding, heavy foods to bring me back down to earth. That fact, at first, was a disappointment as I gained some weight, which we all know is hard to shed—even with the help of hot Bikram Yoga!

I’ve been practicing an Ayurvedic lifestyle for almost a year now. While all my excess weight is not yet shed, I feel progress every week as evidenced in slightly looser clothes. More importantly, I feel safe, secure, grounded, and less frantic and anxious.

I’ve gotten deeper into the practice with daily rituals for cleansing and nourishing the body as well as with meditation, positive affirmations, and quieting my mind.

I’ve learned to garner patience and, more importantly, love for myself. I truly have come to believe that I and my body are not defective and that I am perfect because I am part of the Divine, and it is a part of me. Who knows how many more diets I would have tried, how much more sleep I would have lost, how much more uncomfortable I would have been had I kept on the course in which I was headed. While I still have some personal issues I am working on, I know that utilizing this age-old wisdom has led me towards the salvation of love for Self, compassion for others, and quiet gratitude that I have never felt in my life before this point…not to mention I get to eat ghee! GEE!

In my time studying Ayurveda with Christina, I feel that it all boils down to one simple concept; That the cosmos is this body and this body is the cosmos.

Yes, I learned about specific foods appropriate for my body type, but more importantly, I feel that I’ve learned to pause, to listen to my body, to bring some sanctity to my meals and environment and to be present. In yogic terms, I feel that Christina and
SimpleVeda has imparted the lesson of, “pratyahara” or not living to please the senses.

Christina, I do feel the cleanse was beneficial to me. While I felt well before the cleanse, I just felt energized and jubilant afterward. There was no hunger during the cleanse, and it is empowering to do something so beneficial for your body. During my first cleanse several months ago, I had severe headaches for two days due to my normal coffee consumption. I no longer drink coffee regularly so there were no headaches during this cleanse. I got a deep tissue massage two days after
