A change-of-season, gentle kitcheri-based cleanse, in the comfort of your home, to detox body and mind, boost energy, reset digestion and improve  immunity in preparation for winter

In only 5 days you’ll feel aligned with nature’s cycles, clearer, healthier and renewed

Seasonal change, heralded by the Autumn equinox on March 21st, alerts our mind and bodies that we need to shift gears to keep functioning at our best.

After the excesses of Christmas and our summer holidays, when we might have overindulged in rich, non-seasonal imported delicacies, too many ice creams and barbecues, this is the time of year the liver, gall bladder and intestinal tract yearn for a good cleanse.­

We need to take care that the accumulated heat of summer, combined with the approaching dryness of autumn, does not dry us out too much, like the autumn leaves!

Join us on this gentle detox@home to keep our bodies and minds functioning at their very best, during this time of seasonal change.

The Autumn detox@home will be great for you if you are feeling

  • a little bit heavy and sluggish after too many weeks close to the fridge while working from home!
  • ready for a post summer holiday cleanse, in preparation for winter
  • congested—with signs of lymphatic congestion, water retention or sinus congestion
  • generalised aches and pains
  • stiff joints
  • bloating, wind, constipation, heartburn, acid reflux, diarrhea  or constipation
  • mild fatigue
  • lack of mental clarity
  • irregular or impaired appetite

This Dru Ayurveda gentle detox@home is for you if you

  • are ready to release yourself from craving unhealthy unseasonal foods
  • are committed to prioritising your health for 5 days
  • are self-directed and have self-discipline to follow the detox menus and program—
    don’t worry it’s easy!
  • need a programme that fits in with your family and work life
  • don’t have any serious medical issues
    If you do you, can schedule a consult with either Mouli or Greg, who will tailor a full Ayurvedic health plan to meet your individual needs

What the detox@home provides

  • a quick quiz for us to determine the current imbalances of your doshas (constitution)
  • 3-hour introductory workshop explaining key ayurvedic principles and the detox@home program (available as a recording)
  • full menus for your 5-day detox, with recipes and shopping list 
  • 4 x 20 min cooking demo videos, full of tips to create the detox recipes with ease, available on vimeo  to watch in your own time
  • bonus cooking video with additional recipes specifically for the autumn detox
  • chart of foods permitted during the gentle detox and those to avoid
  • daily yoga and pranayama program to fuel your digestive fire, unwind your nervous system, quieten the mind, de-stagnate the lymph and increase detox benefits  
  • 5 daily zoom Q&A forums, to check-in with your tutors Mouli & Greg, and be supported and inspired by like-minded souls sharing this detox journey 

What if I cannot do all 5 days with the zoom connections?

The detox@home program takes place in the company of a like-minded community with 5 nights of live Q&A hosted by Dru Ayurveda tutors & health coaches Greg and Mouli, with support from the Dru Australasia Ayurveda team. 

  • We recommend that you immerse yourself in the detox over the 5 days 17th to 21st March, leading up to the autumn equinox, as it’s the best time to prepare yourself for the change of season. Checking in each evening at 7pm gives the support, encouragement and inspiration of knowing you are not doing this on your own.
  • However, if you can only make a few of the zoom connections it's OK too. 
    If you’re not able to attend live, you can post your questions ahead of time to our whatsapp detox group. 
    The introductory workshop with explanation of the home cleanse program will be available as recordings. You’ll receive links to the cooking vimeos to watch any time, and pdfs of the menu plans, recipes, a chart of permitted foods and a shopping list.
  • We’ll be offering the detox again in spring, with the introductory workshop on Sat 4th September, and the detox days 8–12th September, so keep those dates free to join us next time!

I am passionate about sharing the wisdom and practices of Dru and Ayurveda, to help bring people's lifestyle and health back into balance and full connection with their joyous true nature.

Simple lifestyle and dietary changes, combined with specific yogic practices and Ayurvedic herbs support wellbeing, healthy choices and inner strength.

By giving us the tools to understand our distinctive constitution, Ayurveda can help us to identify any areas of our health that may be out of balance. We can then put together a daily approach to diet and lifestyle to increase energy, restore vitality and bring a sense of nourished calm to life.

In consultation, Greg applies the Ayurvedic approach to nutrition, yoga practice, therapies, herbs and lifestyle to explore your specific health status or condition.

Day 3—Mono eating kitcheri for full detox 

Kitcheri, the nourishing, cleansing, easy to digest ayurvedic superfood will be our staple.

It is high in protein and is extremely comforting to your digestive tract and intestinal mucosa, beneficial for intestinal repair, rejuvenation and spiritual growth. We giving you full menus for the 5 days of detox, with recipes for three different kitcheri's, complete with cooking videos.

On day three we mono-eat kitcheri, three meals a day. When you eat a mono diet, your body can focus the energy that normally goes towards digestion to cleansing and healing other systems.

Our 5-day meal plan is a truly transformative option for both your body’s detox process and your psychological relationship to food. 

Always eat your largest serving of kitchari midday, when your digestion is the strongest. For dinner, eat early and eat a smaller serving.
