Springtime is an ideal time to do a cleanse or detox.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, each organ system is associated with a season. Springtime is the best time to treat the liver. Spring represents a time of newness, rebirth, and re-visioning and is a great time to refresh and rejuvenate your body. Spring is associated with the wood element which is about growth and expansion and with the liver organ which flourishes during this time. The color associated with the liver or wood element is green.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO DO A DETOX?
A detox of the body is most beneficial in preventing disease and gives the body a much-needed rest. In this detox, you will fast from particular foods and eliminate toxic build-up to greatly strengthen the immune system, which is our body’s defense against disease.
Ideally, the body is able to detox itself through our liver, lymph, and kidney systems, but with our busy lifestyles and less than healthy eating habits, it is necessary to support our bodies in this process.
During the two weeks of cleansing, I recommend you take a break from eating sugar, dairy, meats, alcohol, caffeine, and processed foods. It is also an opportunity to limit your engagement with social media and focus more on just being or being present.
A cleanse does not need to be about depriving yourself, skipping meals, or completing an overly restrictive juice cleanse. The ultimate goal is to make these healthful and tasty foods a part of your everyday routine and to make positive lifestyle changes that will last even after the detox is over.
The package includes three supplements to cleanse the blood, move stool, and remove excess fluids from the body. It also includes tasty daily nutritional menus.
