TCM Detox feel-good tip

Body and mind must be prepared for fasting. The decision to fast should not be taken lightly or implemented on the spot. A successful fast also involves a lot of preparation. A good way to prepare mentally is to start thinking a few days or weeks beforehand about which soups to eat or which kind of porridge to eat instead of your normal breakfast. That prevents the mind from going into shock about the abrupt change and reacting with rejection.

second step. The air flow is interrupted, the air is kept in the lungs and there is no movement in the body.

3 Rechaka (exhale) The third stage refers to the exhalation. Just as with inhalation, calmness and

regularity is required. The speed, however, depends on the particular breathing exercise and may differ from inhalation. Normally you need to engage the muscels to inhale, while when exhaling the relaxation of these is sufficient. During Pranayama breathing exercises, the air is often released quickly from the lungs.

TCM Detox Treatment & Feel Good Tip

BODY WRAPPING:  With Body Wrapping, the circumference of the arms, waist or thighs can be reduced visibly with little effort. How body wrapping works and how to use it without much effort at home, we will show you in today's home spa tip. Body wrapping is based on the principle of compression and helps our body to reduce water deposits, activate fat cells and remove slag. With the combined use of potent body care products, the effect can be increased even more.

You need:

  • 1-2 rolls of cling film, 2 bath towels, body care products - we use our Detox Oil Scrub, Anti Aging Body Serum and Anti Aging Body Cream
    Blanket & 1 pot of detoxification tea
  • Prepare a pleasant place to relax and make yourself a pot of detoxification tea or ginger water. During the wraps you should drink plenty to activate the kidneys, as they play an important role in the removal of water and slag during the effects of the body wrap.
  • Pamper your skin with the detox oil scrub. Begin with your feet moving forward to the legs towards the heart with gentle, circular movements. Likewise start from the hands over to the arms and shoulders. The peeling cleanses and removes dead skin cells. At the same time it stimulates the purification process and blood circulation with peeling particles from apricot kernels and poppy seeds. Wash it off during a relaxing shower.
  • Massage the intense anti-aging serum into those areas that need a bit more "attention". Then apply the Anti Aging Body Cream to all the areas that you want to wrap in the next step with cling film. Some cream residue on the skin can still be visible.
  • Wrap your legs first with foil. The best way to work with individual pieces of film in the length of about one meter. Do not wrap too tightly to prevent you from cutting off blood supply. As a small rule of thumb, the looser your connective tissue is, the looser the wrap should be. At the same time, the film should not slip. It is advisable to try out the desired strength of the wraps beforehand. You may need help from a second person in the arms.
  • After you have wrapped yourself up, you should rest and relax for at least half an hour. Lie down in the relaxing place you have prepared and cover yourself. Now you can go ahead and sweat! Remember to drink a lot during the next few hours to further boost the detox effect. Your fat cells are being pushed together by the body wrap. As a result, water and slag are removed from the cells, which are then transported to the kidneys and broken down.
  • Remove the wraps after one hour. We then recommend a shower to remove the sweat. Treat yourself to some extra complementary care with a short massage with the firming pomegranate oil.
  • For optimal, sustainable results, apply the wrap weekly for a period of 10 weeks. After just one or two wrapping applications you will see the first successes. Therefore: Happy Wrapping!

Press the foot against the inside of the opposite thigh, engage the leg and buttock muscles. The less proficient can place the foot against the inside of the knee or calf or place the sole of the right foot on the arch of the left foot. Raise the arms and push the palms together.

It promotes balance, invigorates and strengthens. The leg will often want to slip away to begin with. Don’t worry about it and leave it where it’s comfortable. The more you tension you put on the standing leg and the firmer the pressure of the angled leg becomes, the better the tree works. This also takes a little practice.

TCM Detox Treatment
Moisturizing facial care with hyaluronic serum by Susanne Kaufmann
The highly concentrated, herbal hyaluronic acid supports the binding of moisture in the skin cells. The perfectly balanced molecular structure of hyaluronic acid fills the moisture reserve of the skin, both in depth and on the surface. The lifting effect that begins after application reduces visible lines and wrinkles. After thoroughly cleansing the face, apply a few drops of hyaluronic acid and then apply the moisturizing mask. Leave for at least 15 minutes and remove with lukewarm water.

TCM Detox Feel Good Tip

A brisk walk helps to increase blood circulation in the cleansing organs and gives them strength to remove toxins successfully. It is therefore invaluable to do sports in the fresh air, or to stimulate liver and kidney by

  • Yoga,
  • Qi Gong,
  • Pilates,
  • relaxation exercises,
  • lymphatic drainage and
  • massages

These two organs are involved in the detoxification in the body. The kidney, for example, has the task of flushing toxins out of the body.

Hair elixir
Acidification of the body also affects the scalp and basic care is important to keep the scalp and hair healthy. We recommend our hair Elixir during this detox process. The Susanne Kaufmann Hair Elixir is a highly efficient serum for a balanced and healthy scalp and improved hair growth. The herbal vitamin complex of B, C and E vitamins and biotin creates the basis for vital, healthy and beautiful hair. Supplemented with active ingredients such as  silk, mallow and wheat germ, the scalp is intensively nourished and irritations eliminated. A formula of caffeine and herbal cosmeceuticals noticeably improve hair growth.

TCM Detox Feel Good Tip
A valuable home remedy during detoxification plans is oil pulling. In the morning, soberly, take 1 tbsp of oil, - preferably use one whose taste you like (grapeseed oil, olive oil, coconut oil etc) - in the mouth. You pull the oil back and forth in the mouth, a bit like rinsing after brushing your teeth, from front to back, from right to left, from top to bottom. It is important that the oil should not be swallowed - because the toxins that are released should not be reintroduced into the body. After about 3 minutes, the structure of the oil has changed, it has now become milky. The oil can therefore be spit out and the mouth should be rinsed and the teeth brushed.
