In Ayurveda detoxification is done based on season disease, physical constitution like Vata Pitta Kapha. Better to consult personally. In rainy Season usually Abhyanaga, Elakizhi, navrakizhi, Dhara , Virechana, Vamana etc are done.
Benifits : Realxation of body and mind
Improves digestion removes toxins there by
prevents seasonal diseases there by improves resistance power.
There are no side effects.
Detoxification is a concept coined in this modern era,
Actually ayurveda suggests SHODHAN therapy (i.e-Panchakarma),
Shodhan is basically removal of aggravated doshas (Vata,Pitta,Kapha) from our body.
These 3 doshas are responsible for smooth functioning of our human bodies ,but when they get aggravated the do act like toxins in our bodies, hence the term detoxification.
Now how is this done :- firstly you need to consult a qualified ayurveda and panchakarma specialist,and after your examination he /she would suggest you to undergo either one or all of the panchakarma therapies.
vaman - therapeutic emesis
virechana - theraupatic puragation.
basti- administration of medicated oils and decoctions via enemas.
raktamoksana - blood letting .
nasya - administration of medicated oils through nostrils.
always consult a experienced ayurveda physician for undergoing such therapies.
