One Day Detox: 8 Ayurvedic Ideas To Add To Your Routine

We love to bring you a wealth of perspectives on detox and cleansing. Wellness coach Nadya Andreeva of Spinach and Yoga has the in on traditional Ayurvedic practices and we love the idea of integrating a few of these ancient ideas into our daily routines. Follow Nadya’s plan for a full day of cleansing or just jot down a few of her tips for making detox an everyday kind of thing!  

Detox doesn’t have to mean lots of expensive supplements, complicated recipes, or starvation. A simple nourishing diet without allergens, lots of hot herbal teas, enough rest, and a few other cleansing practices that we will discuss below will allow your body to recharge and rest. A good way to stimulate the detox process in the body is with a diet full of greens, spices, and warm herbal teas. The juice recipe below includes tons of mineral and vitamin-rich young greens, digestion stimulating and blood sugar-balancing spices: cinnamon and ginger; and bloating preventing fennel.

Here is my simple plan for a full day of gentle Ayurvedic cleansing. Work this day-long schedule into your calendar every so often or simply add some of these details to your routine during a detoxifying juice cleanse!
