Why would you want to do a gentle food cleanse at the change of season?
The digestive system is particularly important in Ayurveda, with a popular correlation that “a person can only be as healthy as their digestive system”, as these organs are responsible for absorbing all the material that will eventually be assimilated into the structure of our bodies, as well as all the material we use for energy and cell signaling.
At the change of season mammals typically have a ritual that prepares their bodies for optimal function in the next season.
Both Western / Hippocratic medicine and Eastern /Ayurvedic medicine are based on “humoral theory”, meaning when the “humors” of the body are balanced, then health is achieved. When the humors are “off balance”, this creates symptoms and disease.
An important piece of Ayurveda is moving with the rhythms and cycles of nature.
Most mammals do not have a choice in this matter: they eat the foods that are seasonally available to them and this produces a varied diet throughout the year.
Humans have invented electricity, refrigerators, grocery stores and airplanes, so our eating structure has changed vastly over the past few hundred years, while our mammalian bodies, evolving over millions of years, have not changed quite so rapidly.
Our bodies do not process foods in the same way all year. Therefore we do not produce the same types of energy, hormones, endorphins or wastes the same way all year.
Ayurveda holds the tenet that our bodies go through seasonal changes just like nature.
