Do you know? Castor oil cleansing is an Ayurveda way of detoxing our system without using chemical-based laxative products.
Castor oil is a great purgatory in Ayurveda because it is only oil at the end of the day. Oil-based purgatives also support the pathways for liver detoxification. It has a very lubricative effect on the colon and doesn’t dry you out like most common laxatives. Good news right? Castor oil also helps those with chronic constipation, we recommend castor oil cleansing done every month if it’s severe constipation but then again make sure to give your colon a rest for at least 1 month before another cleansing!
How do we use Castor oil to DETOX?
It’s a very simple process but it’s good to get prepared a few days ahead before cleansing.
Well, you may add more Pure cow ghee to your diet (3-4 teaspoons) few days before the cleansing. On a Sunday or any day that you are not working, you can mix 2 tablespoons of castor oil with 1/2 cup of freshly squeezed orange or mix 1/2 lemon juice with a pinch of salt with warm water and drink this at about 6:00-7:00 a.m. in the morning, you can expect 4-5 bowel movements in the next few hours.
Please take note if you have gastritis issues kindly avoid lemon juice. Just mix it with lukewarm water and drink it on empty stomach.
Continue to sip plain hot water till you feel the bowel movement. Once the cleansing is done you may continue with the soup diet or khichadi.https://www.indianhealthyrecipes.com/dal-khichdi-recipe/.
Repeat this cleansing for 2 days if needed and two days after the flush, avoid heavy food for example fried, and spicy foods. Kindly avoid eating anything raw or half-cooked meals.
This flush is very intense, as it eliminates all toxins from the body. So, it might make you feel a little light-headed as it also flushes out parasites such as tapeworms. Take it easy for a day. Do sleep and rest if needed.
Repeat only once in six months or whenever you feel its need.
There are few ways we can cure constipation and one is to take one tablespoon of food-grade (medicinal) castor oil before bedtime for three nights in a row to cure constipation and you can repeat this once in three months, however, during the process, keep your food intake very light and easy; avoid raw veggies and fruits.
