Do you remember how refreshed and energized you feel after a good shower? A shower just cleans off your outer skin, but a detox helps your body clean every cell and organ in your body.
Your body can use this energy to lose weight, deal with a health challenge, or maybe just feel happier!
Why Spring is a Good Time to Detox?
Spring brings new growth and regeneration; it is a good time to refresh our systems. Our amazing bodies deal with constant waves of harmful toxins from within and without, and still keep on ticking. Unfortunately our cleansing systems are often overworked and waste builds up in our bodies. When waste accumulates, chronic conditions can develop. This is one of the ways our body starts to degenerate. Spring is a great time to exfoliate and nourish our skin both internally and externally. Dark leafy greens, omega -3 rich foods and antioxidant powerhouses like green tea and blueberries help to feed the skin from the inside.
According to Chinese Medicine, spring is the time to cleanse and nourish the liver! The cells in our body are constantly taking in nourishment and letting go of waste as a natural result of metabolism. The liver is our main detox organ and has over 500 vital functions. Liver congestion and exhaustion interfere with these vital functions. When the liver is so exhausted it loses the ability to detoxify itself and harmful toxins build up in the body. Infrared Sauna and Ion-Foot Cleanses are easy ways to detoxify the liver; also adding garlic, turmeric and cruciferous veggies like broccoli, activate liver enzymes that help your body flush toxins.
The transition from winter to spring is a great time to move towards losing weight and cleanse accumulated toxins from the body. When we don’t completely eliminate food they become toxic. Combine this with environmental toxins and it’s understandable how quickly the body can become overwhelmed with toxins.
As the earth goes through the seasons, our body adjusts to the changes. Just as we wear different clothes to suit the season, we also consume seasonal foods with enthusiasm. Colon hydrotherapy is a safe and effective way to give your detox a jump start, lose weight and help your body function more efficiently by removing years of stored waste from the colon. Give the digestion system a break with lots of easy to digest fruits, and pass on gluten and dairy.
