Why do a 9-day Detox in Autumn?

Are you experiencing any of the following? Stress, poor sleep, inflammation, skin breakouts, bloating, poor digestion, constipation, excess gas, heartburn, brain fog, food cravings, low libido, sluggish metabolism...the list goes on but if you can relate to any of the above, a detox will help. Even if you are not experiencing any of these symptoms at this time, a detox is a wonderful way to help to prevent illness and disease. It is important to fully understand the process of detoxing and to have some support while you do it.

For those of you living in Dublin, you can deepen your detox experience using our infrared sauna and by having Ayurvedic detox treatments. (Book your saunas and treatments as soon as possible to ensure that they fit in with your 9 day plan).

Some benefits from undertaking an Autumn Detox include:

  • Detoxing is a wonderful anti-aging tool
  • Reset your digestion
  • Your mental clarity and concentration improve
  • You will look and feel better
  • Your skin will improve
  • Let go of toxins and boost your energy levels
  • Reduce levels of inflammation in your body
  • Let go of mental and emotional toxins
  • Improve your sleep quality
  • Boost your immunity for Autumn/Winter
  • Rest your senses - take time away from TV/phones

Detoxing is not always appropriate however. We would advise against any detox if:

  • You have your period during the main days
Menstruation is a natural way for the body to detox each month. It is too much for the body to introduce a purgation treatment during this time.
  • You are pregnant
This is not a time for detoxing. Your priority at this time is to nurture your body and your baby.
  • You are severely ill or emaciated
Detoxing puts a strain on the body. It is not appropriate to do this if you are ill or just recovering from an illness. Contact Paula directly for a consultation in this case.
  • You have a severe Vata imbalance.
Detoxing increases Vata as it is lightening, and if there is already very elevated Vata present, we would advise you to talk to Paula about addressing this first - e.g., severe anxiety.
  • Older People
At this time of life, we focus on gently rejuvenating the body tissues, leaving out the detoxification. If you are keen to do a detox and are over 60 years of age, we always recommend a detox consultation to ensure that this is the right option for you.

This content of this workshop is for generally healthy individuals who would like to do an Autumn detox. It is also perfect for those who have previously undertaken a detox and would like to go over the details again, and maybe deepen their experience this time. If you are healthy and plan to focus only on cleaning up your diet for 9 days (cutting out certain foods and eating kitchari), you would not require a separate consultation. If you plan to do a purgation treatment, we always recommend a detox consultation (even if you are healthy) so that you have support throughout the process. If you have an ongoing condition, please book in for a consultation, regardless of the type of detox you would like to undertake. This workshop video will still provide you with a great overview on what is involved in detoxing.
