Join Dr. Somesh Kaushik for this monthly series on Ayurvedic Medicine sponsored by the Libraries of Putnam County New York.
to join this third session which will focus on THE KIDNEY, LIVER, AND LYMPH: ESSENTIAL DETOX PATHWAYS.
The kidneys, liver, and lymph system are the body’s natural detoxification pathways and are critical organs for maintaining the body’s overall health. When they are out of balance, overloaded with toxins, or blocked by stressors (physical or emotional) they cannot function efficiently and illness can result. Learning how to care for these critical organs is essential and discovering what interferes with their functioning is key.
Come and discover:
Foods, herbs, teas, supplements that will help to keep these organs healthy
Specific triggers that cause interference – i.e. anger overloads the liver
Why hydration is critical – and how to determine the right amount for you
The importance of sleep as a regenerative component
Exercises and meditations that reduce stress and help circulation
The benefit of a periodic detox protocol
