Ready, steady, detox — this is THE cleanse taking the health world by storm

Give your body a well-deserved break with this winter wellness cleanse.

As the season prepares to change and the temperature starts to fall, an unsettling begins in our bodies as a way of letting us know of the impending disruption. A cleanse is the perfect way to return our mind, body and spirit to a harmonious state and, as opposed to a juice cleanse which is ideal for the warmer months, a Kitchari cleanse is the perfect detoxification process to restore balance to our digestive systems during the cooler seasons — not to mention gives our liver a much-needed break after the summer’s silly season.

Focused on resetting the system, the three-day detox involves mixing split yellow mung beans with basmati rice, herbs and spices to produce a dhal-like blend, allowing for a healing and soothing effect in the gut and the intestinal walls as well as eliminating toxins from the body. Well-known in Ayurvedic medicine and often practised when in need of a little boost, unlike detoxes that call for us to down six juices a day, this restoration practice won’t feel like a chore.

Fully aware that the word ‘cleanse’ often evokes daunting feelings, Huckleberry is holding an Autumn Cleanse workshop to ease us all in. Encompassing the fundamentals of cleansing, a restorative yoga class, meditation and intention setting exercises, Kitchari cooking demonstrations and tastings, the wellbeing workshop has everything one needs to take the ‘next steps’ of life.

It’s all going down at The Wellness Hub at Huckleberry New Lynn from May 7th-11th.
