Episode 39 - Simple Spring Reset


 Hosted by Kristen Timchak          

Spring is a time of fresh starts and new beginnings a time of unfurling and planting seeds.  It is also a time for spring cleaning your house and your body.

Cleansing diets have grown in popularity over the past few years and they can be healthy for certain constitutions or to work with certain health conditions.  

Spring is Kapha season in Ayurvedic thought.  Kapha is made up of earth and water and its qualities are heavy, cold, liquid, oily, static, thick, dull, sticky and gross (the opposite of subtle). 

So it's a great time to bring in opposite qualities.  To create more energy and lightness, clarity and warmth.  This can be done through the diet or through other lifestyle adjustments.

In this episode:

  • My journey with cleansing:  the good, the bad and the hungry
  • The way my personal journey with cleansing was influenced by orthorexia and body dysmorphia
  • The beginning path of healing with Ayurvedic cleanses
  • Why I now do "resets" instead of cleanses
  • All of the facets that a reset can encompass besides just diet
  • Centering joy in this process
  • How to create a simple spring reset
