Shank Prakshalana is a process that cleanses the entire intestine system with saltwater that has the same concentration of salt as in the body which is 0,9%. Shanka Prakshalana gives an inner purification, cleanses out, releases tensions and gives the inner organs a well deserved rest.
Shank Prakshalana is not only a physical process that cleanses the physical body. It also purifies the psyche, so you will feel the effects in your entire being as greater energy, lightness and happiness. Shank Prakshalana can give inspiration and a greater awareness on nutrition and even change old habits. In this way is gives an increased mental clarity and greater vitality. It is important to come on an empty stomach, so don’t eat breakfast and no late meals the evening before. You might feel tired just after the purification, but soon afterwards you will feel regenerated with a new strong vital force.
You will thoroughly be explained about Shank Prakshalana and guided through the whole cleansing technique.
The actual technique: we drink saltwater, that has the same concentration of salt as in the body, and do certain movement between each glass, which is opening up the intestines and letting the water pass and release toxins, stagnations etc from the intestines.
Please be aware that you should not do Shank Prakshalana in the following cases:
• serious heart diseases
• chronic kidney diseases
• pregnant women in the last two trimesters
• advanced form of gastric ulcer
• affection of digestive tube; dysentery, diarrhea, colitis, acute appendicitis
• intestinal tuberculosis or cancer
Obs: PLEASE DO NOT EAT ANYTHING IN THE MORNING OR LATE IN THE NIGHT BEFORE (And be prepared to have a special, gentle diet for few days after). If you are pregnant or having your menstruation it’s not recommended to do it.
After the technique is completed you will have a first meal based on organic rice and butter (let us know if you are vegan)
The technique is simple and natural, but it is also powerful and it is important to reserve the entire day, preferably the day after aswell for resting and rejuvenating and for allowing the body to enjoy the effects. When we detox it is important that we listen to our body and to avoid strong exersises, strong food, strong noises, tv etc. In this way we support our body to heal itself.
