Why Detox in the Spring?

Rejuvenate Your Winter Body

Spring is here, bringing new ideas, motivation and energy into our lives. There are plenty of reasons to detox at springtime. It’s nature’s birthing season, time of new growth, creation and development. Our bodies naturally respond to the changing season, we start to transition into a more active lifestyle. By supporting our body with a seasonal detox plan we can achieve more energy, motivation, better health and healing.

In the Chinese Five Elements system, the spring season is correlated with the wood element, which is associated with the liver and the gallbladder. The wood element is all about growth, change, and expansion. An imbalance of these organs are linked to anger, frustration, and feeling stuck. Physically it can manifest as headaches, migraines, PMS, hormonal imbalance, joint pain, arthritis, and high blood pressure. Therefore, during the spring detox program we focus on supporting our liver and gallbladder.

A spring detox can be a great way to reset your body; clear digestion issues, achieve more energy and focus, lose the winter weight, and control food cravings. A detox is just as powerful for your mind as the action of physically purifying for the body. When toxins are released your mind also becomes clearer.
