Shankhaprakshalana is one of the major hatha yoga practices, coming under the heading of dhauti kriya. The word shankhaprakshalana comes from two words. Shankha meaning "conch" and prakshalana meaning to wash completely. The word shankha is used to represent the entire alimentary canal from mouth to anus. This practice is also known as "varisar dhouti". This practice is also a part of kaya kalpa, which is an Ayurvedic technique for physical purification and transformation, kaya means body and kalpa means transformation. Shankhaprakshalana is the process to clean the intestinal tract by removing the impurities with salty water.
Shankhaprakshalana is not just a practice concerning the stomach and intestines, but is a thorough cleansing technique. It creates a repair action which affects the lungs, nervous system, skin, sinus area, the whole body, continuing while the person follows the regime of special food and asana. In this way we see the reduction of so many diseases and a positive positive step in the direction of good health.
Fasting is a wonderful way to get rid of deep rooted toxins from the body. As soon as we stop eating regular meals the body begins to eliminate these toxins and expels impurities out through the digestive system allowing all of the internal organs of the body to rest and recover from past exhaustions. This is one of nature’s way to heal the entire body.Three days of fasting is a perfect way to experience fasting and cleansing of the entire digestive system. From day one of the fast we will gradually reduce your intake of food each day, so that on the third day your body will be prepared with just drinking honey and lemon water as substitute as food. You will still be able to drink unlimited amounts of water with fresh lemon juice and natural herbal teas throughout the fasting. It is essential, though, that you gradually reduce your food intake within the period of three to six days. After 3 days of apple fasting. Apples have natural eliminating and laxative properties which is good for the digestive system and aids in flushing the toxins out of your body.
Fasting cleanses the mind as well as the body, therefore you will start to feel all kinds of emotions, some high’s and some lows, so try not to listen and react to these emotions and keep yourself focused, calm and balanced. Practice pranayama’s to keep you energy levels up and help manage the emotional effects.
