Shodhana is a synergy of depurative plants for a deep cleansing of toxins and waste present in our body. In winter, the body slows down and eliminates little waste. It is therefore essential to carry out a detox treatment in the spring, ideally for 21 days.
The first days of a detox, you may experience excessive heat. This is completely normal, Shodhana heats the body to fluidify and recirculate wastes in order to expel them. After a few days this effect will wear off. If on the contrary you feel a cooling, then you are completely detoxified; you can stop the cure.
Detox helps the body to clean itself thoroughly, to expel accumulated waste that disrupts its proper functioning and weakens it. Through the action of plants such as lime, dandelion and burdock, it will put the toxins stored in the organs, tissues and doșas back into circulation, unclog the channels, in particular the evacuation and stimulate the emunctories (liver, kidneys, skin..). It also stimulates digestion through pepper and angelica which will help to evacuate Ama (puree of undigested nutrients).
Based on the principles of Ayurvedic herbalism or "Dravya Guṇa", Shodhana is a synergy of cleansing plants. This synergy is unblocking of all the channels that constitute us.
Both Ayurveda and Yoga see the human as a bunch of channels in the making. This composition can make you experience a lot of heat during the cleaning process as this heat will be mainly composed of residue (Mala) in the form of waste of Kapha and Pitta nature mixed, or not, with Āma. The purification process will first ripen the Doṣa and then fluidify them by exciting their secretions in the channels to finally evacuate them and unclog the body. After several days, the body and the spirit are refreshed.
