Probably the most thorough and profound study of detoxifying the body was documented by the sage Patanjali some three thousand years ago. Layed out in 194 Sutras or Aphorisms, Patanjali reveals the steps a student must take to cleanse mind, body and spirit.
1. Beginning with the body the student strives for purity through a sequence of postures (asanas) meant to release tensions, limitations and a whole lot of sweat. This process removes the impurities from blood, tissue, muscles and cells. It also removes toxic thoughts by helping to focus the mind.
2. With the cleansing of the body, the mind awakens to an understanding of the self and the path of right action towards all species. Fasting, internal detoxification, and a vegetarian diet are undertaken.
3. A devoted student perfects each step of yama (restraints), niyama (commitments), asana (postures), and pranayama (breath work) to cleanse the body and senses and free the mind from its afflictions.
