Fasting is called Upavasa ~
'Upavasa' is the Sanskrit name for what we would call 'Fasting' or more acurately Purification, the process is considered a remedy for a variety of illnesses as well as promoting longevity and well-being.
Upavasa /Fasting according to Ayurveda describes it as something much more comprehensive than modern-day fasting, which like many copying is reduced to simply 'not eating'.
Ayurveda describes Upavasa as greater awareness than just abstinence from eating food. We are asked to consider the chewing, licking, and swallowing of food, as well as drinking.
Ayurveda Upavasa followed correctly and consistently leads to the removal of accumulated toxins and clears the blocked channels within us.
Over time the body will remove toxins from itself, also body fat is reduced which helps those wishing to lose weight.
Ayurveda describes obesity not only as an issue of overeating but also an issue with poor digestion
We help this by doing some very simple Home Panchakarma practices.
Snehana is Oiling and Swedhana is Sweating, although this is not required on this 3 days unless you have a sauna or steam room.
There are many different ways to fast and cleanse the body and if you have never done fasting before, this is a good start.
Herbal teas, the dosha teas are perfect.
Vegetable Juicing at room temperature.
Gruel ~ these are very sloppy kichadi, rice, and oats. We will have recipes for these.
No heavy solids
Fasting is not about being severe and not having anything, during Panchakarma it's about a healthy rest for our digestive system and this can help our bodies to clear toxins 'ama' and strengthen the digestive fire, this is important.
Fasting, if it's done correctly as suggested here, can also increase energy levels, encourage immunity, bring lightness to the body, sharpen the intellect, and bring a sense of vitality.
Often people will use fasting as a quick weight loss solution, but fasting for weight loss is a mistaken option and not recommended in Ayurveda.
Fasting is a powerful cleansing technique to allow the body and gut to rest, stimulate your digestive fire, restore healthy organ functions, calm the mind, and clear toxins as a result, unwanted fat tissue can be reduced.
