Why should you detox in autumn?

Now we are in March, summer is officially over. The hot days will start to decrease and the transition to the cooler weather is here.


Do you know that autumn is one of the best times of the year for performing a cleanse?


The ancient textbook of Ayurveda says it is best to detox during the transitional seasons of spring and autumn. The environment and seasons have great influence in our lives and the symbol of transition applies to us and our bodies, as well as the environment.


For many of us, summer is the season of fun, travel, late nights, holidays and many social activities. There is a greater risk of building toxins in the summer days. Summer is also the time of pitta accumulation and by the end of summer, it is aggravated. Pitta aggravation may lead to mental and physical burnout, stressing our adrenals and taxing our nervous system. When excess pitta accumulates in the liver it can result in migraines, irritability, rashes, anger and more.


During autumn, the wind begins to blow, dryness increases and the vata dosha begins to take over. But imagine what happens when fire is fanned by the wind? The fire burns even brighter, doesn’t it?


An autumn cleanse flushes the accumulated pitta toxins in the system and balances the inner fire. It supports our livers, and prepares us for the winter months.


The softer, milder, and moderate months of autumn are ideal for giving us a chance to reset our mind and body.
