FAQ on Spring-Cleanse: It’s Time – early-bird extended! REPLAY of “Cook SVA with Divya”; – your SV Ayurveda Newsletter April 30, 2020 – #16, Vol 10

“The accumulation of toxins in the body is a naturally occurring phenomenon. The body’s metabolic processes yield waste-products on a daily basis. These are known as mala-s: feces, urine, sweat, etc. It is only when these waste-products are allowed to linger, that they become toxic. This is one source of endogenous or internal toxic build-up.” (Vaidya Mishra, 2009)
The transition from one season to another is known as “ritu sandhi” – seasonal transformation – and this is the best time of the year, specially when going from Summer to Autumn, to support the body in a gentle yet effective cleansing protocol or detox. 
Detox, of late, has become the greatest fad in our culture. Drinking or ingesting specific herbal concoctions, coupled with fasting, or other somewhat harsh practices. In this course you will learn that not only can these practices be harmful, but they may cause long term damage, because there is more, so much more to detoxing! Vaidya Mishra designed his detox protocols to aid us off-load toxic accumulation on your own, without having to spend thousands of dollars at detox retreats or centers. SVA detox is done, by you, in the comfort of your own home, safely and effectively. Not only that, but you also learn how not to accumulate more toxic waste by making the right choices on a daily basis. Because there is yet another very important source of internal toxins comes from poor digestion. Replacing toxic foods and habits with healthier ones is easy once you understand the impact they have on your body, heart and mind! In this course, you will learn the “why-how-when” to detox endogenous, or internal, toxic build-up.
But wait there is more! 
“Nowadays, exogenous or externally induced toxins are just as harmful as endogenous toxins. The environment we live in can be highly toxic, starting with the personal care products we use – shampoo, deodorant, etc.; to house-cleaning products; preservatives and chemicals used in dyes; clothing; furniture, etc. Another kind of exogenous toxicity that affects our overall health has to do with EMF overload from cellphones, microwaves, and the overuse of electric devices such as computers, etc.” (Vaidya Mishra, 2009)
Most detox protocols and fads nowadays are unable to guide you into a full body, mind, and heart detox, because they lack the holistic big picture. With this course, you will learn about all 4 possible types of toxic build-up, and how to minimize/eliminate them, and allow your physiology a full reboot. 
You will see how ongoing daily and weekly detox is an essential part of a healthy happy life. In Vaidya Mishra’s words, “proper detox is essential for long-term health and happiness. But proper detox depends on many factors, not just switching to a better diet and exercising! If your detox pathways are damaged or blocked; if the season is not right for detox; or you are currently going through emotional or mental stress; then you may dislodge your toxins without properly evacuating them and they will most likely end up roaming around and damaging organs, organ systems, or even the cellular intelligence of your body, resulting in severe imbalances and eventually incurable chronic conditions.” (Vaidya Mishra 2009). 

frequently asked questions
What will I learn in this course? 
“ You will learn how there are different types of toxins that carry a different solubility based on their own chemical composition. You will then see how you can evacuate toxins based on their make-up or type, and which channels or detox pathways to use to eliminate specific toxins in an easy, safe, and effective way. You will also learn how it is not enough to detox, but it is very important to nourish: when you detox you eliminate toxic waste that was occupying space. You need to replace that toxic waste that was eliminated by nurturing molecules or particles. Detox and rejuvenation are the 2 strokes of one protocol. Neither is complete without the other. The self-detox protocol outlined [here] has been practically applied by many SVA practitioners and followers across the United States and Canada, successfully, for the past several years. Now you can also learn how to do your own home-detox, minimize the build-up of future toxic waste, and rejuvenate!” – Vaidya Mishra, 2009
