Spring has finally arrived! We are starting to emerge from the coma-like state we call “winter”, and most of us couldn’t be happier. Spring means that we can start getting outdoors, getting some fresh air, and start tackling all our spring projects. Usually that involves some sort of spring cleaning, where we clean out the junk, the grime, and dirt that has been accumulating in our homes, cars, and offices.
Did you know that your body instinctively starts a spring cleaning of its own? According to Chinese medicine, spring is a transitional time period when internal energy starts to expand. The liver is given energy to cleanse the body during this energy expansion. Thus, spring is an excellent season to boost your body’s natural detoxification system.
Cleansing Puts a Spring in Your Step… and More!
The liver is your body’s main detoxification organ. It cleanses the blood of toxins accumulated from the environment and from poor diet. However, in today’s toxic world, sometimes the liver needs a little outside help in the form of a cleanse. If you’ve never done a cleanse before, you are missing out!
Here are some of the wonderful results you can expect from a cleanse:
Better GI Function – The gastrointestinal tract benefits greatly from cleansing. Yeast, fungus, and other micro-toxins flourish in a GI tract that is crowded with sludge and toxins from poor diet. Cleansing the GI tract leads to increased energy and reduction of bad bacteria.
Clearer Skin – Adult acne is more common than you may think. The skin is considered a secondary elimination organ. When the liver is clogged, the body will expel toxins through the skin. If you find yourself having occasional or frequent breakouts, it’s definitely time for a cleanse.
Clearer Thinking – Many toxins create what we call “brain fog,” which feels exactly as it sounds. By cleansing the body of toxins and their byproducts, we allow cleansed blood to flow freely to the brain.
Increased Energy – Cleansing the liver of toxins allows you to derive the most nutrition from your food since your body is free to process nutrients as intended.
Reduction in Disease-Related Symptoms – Many find that constipation, GERD, diverticulitis, and hypertriglyceremia are greatly improved, or even disappear after cleansing.
Improved Mood – What we eat greatly impacts our feel-good neurotransmitters, such as serotonin. Much of our serotonin originates in the gut. By cleansing the liver, digestion is allowed to proceed normally and toxins, which affect our gut health, are eliminated properly.
Weight Loss – While weight loss is not the main objective of cleansing, it is often a welcome side effect.
Improved Eating Habits – Many who cleanse quickly realize how possible it is to feel good! When foods that cause allergic reactions, or contain harmful toxins are eliminated, it opens up a whole new world of healthy eating. The effects of the cleanse are often so positive that one doesn’t want to risk losing the good health gained by indulging in unnatural foods.
