 Ayurveda Rejuvenation Programme

A 10-day Personalised  Cleanse and Rejuvenation Programme

  • 3-days home prep
  • 6 days full programme with 5 optional body treatments 
  • 2 days final elements of programme at home

Whether you are simply feeling under parr, or are living with chronic illness, Ayurveda teaches us that a  programme of cleansing and rejuvenation is one of the best things we can give to ourselves, to reduce symptoms in body and mind,  and to enhance longevity.

  • Are you motivated to optimise your health and well-being for the years ahead?
  • Are you troubled by niggling ailments that affect your and capacity to enjoy life?
  • Are you living with chronic pain, inflammation or degenerative disease?

If you answered yes to any of the above, Ayurveda would tell you that a cleanse and rejuvenation programme may be the best gift you can give yourself. 

In fact, according to Ayurveda we can all benefit from this kind of programme, even if we are quite well, as a preventative and a way to maintain health.

Are any of the following familiar to you?

  • feeling sluggish, heavy, and low in energy
  • bloating, constipation, indigestion, nausea
  • poor sleep
  • aching joints
  • headaches
  • inflammation in the gut
  • inflammatory skin conditions
  • fungal infections
  • painful and/or irregular periods
  • symptoms of menopause or perimenopause
  • excess pounds that just won’t shift
  • memory not as good as it was
  • difficult to think clearly and focus
  • recent accelerated signs of ageing

Ayurveda recommends that we regularly take time out to cleanse and rejuvenate the body and mind. This enhances resilience, immunity, vitality and wellbeing. 

Also, restoring the body and mind to an equilibrium, reducing excess dosha, boosting digestive capacity and removing toxicity plays an important part in the prevention of degenerative disease, as well as the reduction of symptoms.   

This programme offers all of this. 

When we are living with chronic illness,  Ayurveda understands that a cleanse and rejuvenation programme will be an essential part of our healing and recovery.

This 10 day programme, allows you to detoxify, reset and rejuvenate your body and mind from the comfort of your own home, or away from home distractions on a residential option. 

Plus, you will have Sara’s full guidance and support so that you can get the best possible results.  

What Happens on The Ayurveda Rejuvenation Programme?

Once you have booked your place on the Ayurveda Rejuvenation Programme, you will be asked to complete two assessment forms and we will schedule your initial consultation. 

The consultation can be online or in person.

In the consultation, we will explore your Ayurveda type, your health goals, and the root cause of any  symptoms you may be experiencing.

This helps Sara to put together the personalised elements of your rejuvenation programme. 

According to findings in the consultation, Sara will create a ten day programme of dietary, herbal, Yoga, meditation,and body treatment protocols for you.

The treatment protocols:

  • Reduce excess doshas (humours)
  • Optimise your digestive capacity.
  • Boost your metabolic function.
  • Remove toxins from deep in the body tissues.
  • Strengthen the body, pacify the mind, and restore balance to the whole system. 

Days 1-3, You will prepare for the cleanse part of the programme at home, as you transition to a simple, Ayurveda way of eating. You will have full guidance for this with recipes and shopping list. 

Days 4 -9, You will transition onto the cleanse and rejuvenation special foods and herbs, whilst also having (5 optional) body treatments with Sara. 

Day 9 or 10, there is the option to do a gentle purgation to expel toxins released into the gut during the cleanse process. You will have full guidance for this procedure. 

When the 10 days are complete, we meet for a follow-up consultation (online or in person) to create a manageable longer-term plan for you. The weeks and months immediately following the  Rejuvenation Programme, are a time to focus on building renewed vitality, strength and resilience now that your body and mind have been brought back into balance, symptoms reduced and toxins expelled.

During these months, you will be prescribed herbs, nutrition and lifestyle protocols to support the regeneration of your body tissues and the accompanying increase in health and wellbeing.

When Is the Best Time to Take the Programme?

The great thing about this programme is that you can take it at the time that best suits your schedule, and when you really feel ready in body, mind and spirit to put time aside for YOU.

However, you might also like to bear in mind that Ayurveda recommends seasonal cleansing and rejuvenation, and that the best time is said to be at times of seasonal juncture (as we transition from one season to the next). 

This is because each season is goverened by a particular dosha (humour)  which means that, especially if we have that dosha in our constitutional type, that dosha can increase in us. And it can increase to the extent that it starts to cause excess dosha-related symptoms. 

As we transition from one season, it is the best time to remove accumulated dosha (humour) from the body, as well as toxins that have gathered in our system over time.

What’s Involved? 

On this Ayurveda Rejuvenation Programme, we restore optimum body function and wellbeing through:

i. personally tailored Ayurveda meals

ii. herbal formulas and powders

iii. a programme of body treatments just for you, with herbalised oils made by Heart of England Ayurveda,, especially for your Ayurveda type and symptoms

iv. rest and time out from our daily pressures.

v.  individualised therapeutic Yoga and meditation practices to enhance the effects of the dietary, herbal and body treatment protocols. 

Ayurveda teaches us, and thousands of years have proved the case, that putting time aside for cleansing and rejuvenation is not only a good idea but also essential for our healing and for supporting optimum health and longevity in the years ahead.

  • ATHE STRUCTURE OF THE 10-DAY  PROGRAMME

  • An Initial Consultation:  In Ayurveda, we understand that “one shoe does not fit all”. And so we adapt this programme to suit your individual Ayurveda constitutional type and current symptoms.

Preparation: The first 3 days of the programme are structured to prepare your body and mind for the Cleanse programme by removing any processed foods and stimulants such as sugar, caffeine, and alcohol from your daily diet. This is a time for fresh, cooked fruits and vegetables, whole grains, pulses, nuts, seeds and cold pressed organic oils. We ease you gently into the programme with special Ayurveda seasonal recipes, and you will begin to take small doses of the cleansing herbs and teas, and to apply some of the other programem protocols.

Body Treatments: Your personalised body treatments are a crucial part of the cleanse and rejuvenation programme. These are not to be confused with well-being massages. They are therapeutic and are carried out with herbalised oils and powders made and selected just for you. They may begin on day 1 or 5 and continue until day 9. 

  •  

  • The Cleanse: The cleanse itself really starts on day 4, and will run for 4-5 days. During this time you will be mainly on a vegetarian diet of grains, legumes, vegetables, and unleavened breads (where appropriate), all cooked in spice blends formulated according to the season and possibly adapted to suit your personal needs. During these days, you will also be special herbal teas and your herbal prescriptions at meals times and in-between to help cleanse the blood, lymph and internal organs, and support good elimination throughout the programme.

  •  

  • The Castor Oil Flush: This day of the cleanse programme is scheduled to fall on a Saturday so you can be at home. You will be asked to eat lightly and early on the previous evening. Early the next morning you will take a drink of castor oil, mixed with ginger tea on an empty stomach. This will empty out the bowels, carrying with it toxins which have been released during the programme and this sometimes include parasites and fungus. In some cases, it is not appropriate to do the castor oil cleanse and this will be decided through the preliminary consultation.

  •  

  • Ending the Cleanse: On day 10, you will be guided gently into normal eating again and into replenishing the gut bacteria, after the castor oil flush. The flush helps to change the microbial flora in the body. Once we’ve got the bad stuff out, we replenish the gut with good lactobacillus bacteria. These new bacteria produce more vitamins for the body and help to change body physiology. And we nourish all the tissues and strengthen the body further with gentle superfoods and antioxidant foods.

  •  

  • Education – learning about your own metabolism and how best to cleanse and nourish for your metabolic type will be an integral part of the programme.

A FOLLOW UP CONSULTATION
At the end of the programme, you will meet with Sara for a follow-up consultation. She will prescribe ongoing dietary, herbal and lifestyle protocols for you, so that your body and mind are supported as the rejuvenation process continues for the next month or so. 
This is an important part of the process, helping body and mind rebuild in a healthy and balanced way after the programme.

Testimonial, Roni Flatley

I decided to fully embrace the 10 Day Rejuvenation Programme offered by Sara
I prepared by cleaning up my diet and clearing my diary before the detox so that I was fully immersed in the 10 days.
Each day for 5 days I received the most wonderful Ayurvedic Body Treatments (those on their own would be treat enough!).
And at the end of the detox, I did the castor oil cleanse because not doing it wouldn’t have felt complete.
The whole experience felt like a total reset as I rested my body, mind and spirit –  journaling every day, taking very light exercise, eating pure, cleansing foods bespoke for my dosha. It was a perfect gift to myself, held in a beautiful space by Sara. 
Nearly 2 months on, I still continue with a lot of the practices and recommendations as I assimilate back in to ‘normal’ life. An added bonus was dropping over a stone in weight, which is a great incentive to keep going!
Thank you Sara for your wisdom  knowledge and dedication.
