Why detox in the Fall?

Support your body with a seasonal detox plan

Our bodies naturally respond to the changing seasons. By supporting our bodies with cleansing, seasonal foods during this time, we can achieve better health and avoid winter illness.

Cleansing is the oldest form of natural healing. Therapies involving food and fasting are known as preventative medicine, or self healing. You can call this a do-it-yourself maintenance program.

Fall is the season of gathering nature’s products and prepare for winter’s rest. On September 22nd, is the equinox day, when the night’s darkness equal the length of the day. After this, the nights become longer until the winter solstice, the longest night, usually on December 21st.

Like early spring, early fall is a good time for cleansing, before your diet may be richer and more heat producing for the cold winter season.

Fall is ruled by the metal element and correlates to the lungs and the large intestines in Chinese medicine. These organs are linked to skin and breathing problems like asthma, eczema, acne, skin rashes and dry skin. Therefore with the fall detox program we focus on supporting our respiratory and digestive systems.
