A huge part of Ayurveda is cleansing with the seasons. Seasonal cleansing helps one to get rid of residual energy from the season past. In fall, the main focus is to cleanse Pitta from the body which shows up as heat that is left over from summer. This can result in skin imbalances, aggravation or excess acidity in the digestive tract. Cleanses play a huge role in detoxing the system, removing lymph, and resetting digestion. Cleansing is also a great way to get back to healthy habits and synch up to the rhythms of nature.
