~Kitchari January 26, 27 & 28~
A nourishing Kitchari is an Ayurvedic style cleanse that is wonderful during this time of year! It is balancing for all body types and its ability to promote healing, digestive health and overall well-being by providing the means for clearing accumulated waste and toxicity from the mind and tissues, encouraging optimal health.
An Ayurvedic kitchari cleanse will include simple meals. We will start breakfast kitchari and lunch & dinner will be traditional kitchari.
A mono-diet of kitchari is to give the body just one thing that it has to digest. In allowing our bodies to sink into the rhythm of digesting one really digestible thing, we give it a rest. In resting, the miracle of self-healing starts to occur. Our bodies know how to cleanse and they know how to heal, they just need the proper container. Kitchari cleansing is one such container. Each ingredient in the kitchari plays a specific role in the process. The mung beans are alkaline forming and blood-purifying but they also provide protein and nutrients to nourish the body. The rice is easily digested, the warming spices kindle the agni, and the ghee lubricates the system, allowing for smooth passage. As simple as it is, this ancient remedy works some insane alchemy on the body.

Some of the recommended supplements are listed below, they are in addition to the prices above, please let Michelle know as soon as possible which ones you need so she can have them available during your first pick up:
Premier Enzymes – $25 – are the ‘spark of life’. This powder formula is a digestive and cleansing blend of plant-based enzymes and other plant-derived digestive aids. This formula consists of premium, full-spectrum, digestive enzymes with added nutritional co-factors optimized to work in wide pH variations throughout the entire digestive tract. Without enzymes, our bodies do not properly break down food; therefore we do not absorb vitamins, minerals and amino acids which are the basis of health. Our immune system, bloodstream, liver, kidneys, spleen and pancreas especially depend upon enzymes for proper digestive function. Without proper enzymes, our white blood cells try to perform the purpose of the enzymes, usually leaving one feeling tired after eating, and compromising the immune system. Enzymes are responsible for every biochemical reaction that occurs in living matter. All life depends on enzymes.
Every Body – Grounding Body Oil – $48 – Love your skin!
Self oil massage is perhaps one of the most nourishing ways we can honor our bodies and minds. Because we’re all part of the hustle, the ether and air elements within our bodies are elevated and craving to be soothed. By calming these elements within us, the practice of self oil massage hydrates the skin, lubricates the joints, improves digestion and relaxes the nervous system.
EVERY BODY is a blend of grounding and nourishing oils that leaves you feeling calm, connected, and restored. It combines high antioxidant healing oils with the light, gender-neutral scent of sandalwood and cypress.

Sole Water – $5 – Himalayan Salt supersaturated in pure water. This drinking therapy restores the body’s natural frequency pattern and harmonizes the alkaline/acid balance in the body. It contains 84 of your body’s 92 essential minerals that it needs to stay in balance. The lists of benefits of sole water is long! But here are a few things it helps with naturally: Stabilizes heart beats, vital for balancing blood sugar levels and is a crucial element for diabetes sufferers, dissolves and releases crystalized deposits that cause rheumatic diseases as well as kidney and gallbladder stones, helps keep bone structure firm, vital in the prevention of gout and gouty arthritis, extracts acidity from the cells in the body (especially brain cells), vital to nerve cells for communication and information processing, excellent for aiding in sleep regulation, helps with the absorption of food, cleans the intestines and heals skin diseases from the inside out, clears mucous plugs and sticky phlegm, helps with asthma and cystic fibrosis, aids in the prevention of muscle cramps and vital for maintaining sexual libido.
Sole Bath – $15 – In contrast to a normal bath, in which moisture is extracted from the skin, a sole bath allows salt to be stored in the upper callous layer of the skin and binds water. This maintains the natural, protective film of the skin, protecting it from drying out. This is the reason why sole baths are good for dry skin as well. The cleansing effects of a 30-minute sole bath equal those of three days of fasting. The toxins are released into the bath water through osmosis, while the minerals from the sole are absorbed through the skin. Studies have shown that you can achieve the best results taking a sole bath during the change of the moon cycle. The minerals and energies stored in the sole can optimally be absorbed during a full moon. The body’s healing potential is at its peak, bioenergetically weak points are harmonized, and the body’s own energy flow is activated. During a new moon, the cleansing effects are optimized because the body’s capacity for detoxifying is at an optimum. The bath will have a detoxifying effect similar to a three day fast.
Fire Cider – 8 ounces – $15 – Fire cider is a medicinal concoction that has been used for many generations to support healthy digestion, keep away seasonal infections, boost circulation and get rid of sinus congestion.
