Origins of Detox
"Ayuh" meaning life and "veda" meaning knowledge.
Ayurveda, meaning “The Science of Life.” is thought to have originated in India 6000 years ago. One of the disciplines within Ayurveda, ( pancha karma.) is to progressively eliminate certain foods from the diet. Taking spiritual walks, cleaning out the colon and the nasal passage. The goal being to prolong life, prevent disease, and to enhance spiritual and emotional growth. Which is exactly how detox works today.
Origins of Yoga
Yoga is holistic, there is no physical yoga and spiritual yoga as such. If purely physical, it is not yoga. Yoga is totality, completeness, a unity of mind and body, an all encompassing life style, not the physical act, westerners have come to know and learn. That is not to say the physical aspect of yoga will not be beneficial, it is and for many, may be the only physical activity they can partake in.
It is thought that Yoga originated in India 5,000 years ago and some think it may be earlier than this.
