The Truth About Smoothies

Written by Heather Burkart

My mission is to empower women with a natural, holistic approach to support health so you can be strong, vibrant, and content. My focus is on your whole well being including mental, emotional, and spiritual.

Smoothies ARE NOT ideal for cleansing or detoxification diets.

Here’s why:

  • Their energy is cold, dense, and heavy. Not ideal for Spring, which has the same qualities.
  • Who wants to feel more cold, dense, and heavy?
  • These qualities can cause uncomfortable indigestion like bloating, gas, and sluggishness. 
  • Sluggish digestion can create Ama, metabolic waste, which would be counter-productive during a detoxification program
  • Check your tongue for a coating, which is a tell-tale sign of Ama

Ditch the fads and warm up to Ayurveda’s time-tested approach that honors a woman’s system. 

  • Ayurvedic cleansing recipes are simple, soothing, and easy to digest.
  • Warm, nourishing foods and beverages are friendlier to a women’s sometimes-sensitive system and gut especially during cooler seasons.
  • The Ayurvedic cleansing diet supports optimal digestion and strengthens Agni.
  • Better digestion means nutrients are more bio-available.
  • Toxin (Ama) removal is aided by healthy elimination.
  • Specific timing honors a woman’s cycle.

Just say NO to smoothies and say YES to a smarter way to cleanse.

With love, from Ayurveda.
