Seasonal Cleansing--Is it Necessary?
Updated: Aug 4
To cleanse, or not to cleanse?
We clean out our furnace’s filters in the fall. We regularly clean our car’s oil and air filters. Are our body’s own filters any different?
Not long ago, perhaps in your grandparent’s generation, that spring and fall cleansing were commonly used. This process allows the body to flush out any accumulated toxins, which in turn, allows the immune system to deal with the possible fall and winter viruses and bacteria instead of the toxins.
Cleansing also allows the body to flush the lower digestive system (the small intestine and colon) of any fecal matter that is impacted in the lining. Today we are fortunate to have some excellent cleansing kits available.
My two top recommendations:
Both are high quality products with clear and sound advice that is easy to follow.
Remember, cleansing takes energy from the body initially. Therefore, ease back on your daily routine for the duration of the cleanse and drink plenty of water and warm herbal teas. Ginger tea is great for this.
