So What Exactly is Kitchari?
It is a combination of basmati rice with split mung beans, spices (appropriate for doshas), ghee or high quality oil and sometimes easy to digest vegetable components can be added to the dish making it like a rice stew. With the use of LTF's spices and ghee, the kitchari takes on a sattvic (peaceful) quality and reboots the digestive system without starving or undernourishing the body.
There are numerous cleanses out there; water fasts, raw juice cleanses and so forth. An Ayurvedic internal cleanse using kitchari is exactly what you need to give your body the reboot it deserves without the harsh detox symptoms that usually accompany more aggressive fasting or cleansing techniques. If you are looking for something that won't break the bank, it's time to try a kichari cleanse. The process is simple enough to endure during the heat of Summer, as it is only three days - and it won't leave you feeling starved. If you are new to cleansing, then look no further than the traditional Ayurvedic Kitchari Cleanse by Love True Food.
About the Doshas
Ayurveda describes your constitution or body type as a combination of three doshas. The three doshas are called Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. The doshas describe three basic patterns of how you use energy. Vata spends energy. Pitta manages it. Kapha stores it. An imbalanced Vata person might spend too much energy, depleting their energy and stamina. Vata people tend to be hyperactive, underweight and dry. Pitta people tend to get hot, sour and inflamed because they are too focused and driven. Kapha people are stable, but if they store too much energy, they could gain weight easily and have congestion. This cleanse balances out the doshas for optimal health and wellbeing. Choose from three menu options below; Vata, Pitta or Kapha
This cleanse can be done at any time of the year, usually in Ayurveda it is done between the junctions of the seasons. This is to clear any stagnant 'doshic' activity from the previous season. However, it is not recommended during a women's menstruation.
Kichari cleansing brings the body back into homeostasis. According to Ayurveda, Kitchari is a whole food and when consumed with the appropriate spices, it can allow the body time to detox without overbearing with detox symptoms. In this ancient science of healing, kitchari alleviates symptoms of overly toxic and stressful lifestyles.
Kitchari is not only delicious, but it provides the body enough nourishment when undergoing a cleanse. It aids in digestion and regulates 'agni', the digestive fire within. A Kitchari cleanse can last from 3 to 21 days. It is usually best for the Vata type. There will be kichari for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
