Spring and Fall and perfect times to cleanse, as we shift season, our internal rhythms also shift allowing us an opportunity to release stored toxins and stagnation. Many factors account for toxins accumulating in the body, including not getting enough sleep and exercise, worry, poor diet, environmental pollution, medications etc.
Benefits of Cleansing include:
- Tissue, blood and organ detoxification
- Energizing the cells!
- Remove ‘heaviness’ accumulated in the winter
- Lift anxiety and depression
- Strengthen the immune system
- Lessen general effects of aging
- Enables a check in with yourself to align with your life goals
In Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine it is considered particularly beneficial to detox and renew the LIVER and GALL BLADDER in the spring! The liver is responsible for the smooth flow of energy in the body. During winter months it has a tendency to accumulate stagnation. Intensified emotions of frustration and irritability are common, along with anger and/or feelings of depression. Other symptoms of stagnant energy are headaches and other aches and pains throughout the body.
During Spring the liver moves into a natural detoxification process which we are aid through cleansing, particularly through the consumption of green veggie juices and soups and yoga classes specially designed to aid in detoxification and creating balance.
