As a result the body's Vital Organs, and the various systems are enabled to function more efficiently, & restore the proper balance of the body and mind. Detoxification is normally done by stimulating the four eliminatory organs: Skin, Lungs, Intestines and Kidneys.

  • The skin is stimulated by exercise i.e., brisk walking, jogging, cycling, skipping, swimming. When exercise is not possible, whole body steam bath (Sauna) once a week is a good alternative. This exercise is to induce sweating. Sweat expels sulphur compounds unwanted by the body.

  • The lungs expel carbon dioxide and water vapour. Steam inhalation with boiled water containing shredded cabbage leaf and one teaspoon of turmeric powder helps cleansing of lung, sinuses and nasal air passages. Cabbage contains Tartronic acid and organic sulphur. It helps cleans the respiratory track, the sinuses and allopen spaces in the head and thoracic region. Turmeric contains Curcumin and Curcumol, which have potent antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties.
