Spring is a time of renewal and regrowth. To our ancestors, spring always signalled the time for a cleanse, a time to detoxify the body of accumulated toxins using herbs which were often picked from grandmother’s garden.
This cleansing tradition has been carried on today by those desiring better health. Some people may practice complete fasting using only juices and herbal teas. Others prefer a fruit and vegetable diet, along with herbs, to make the body more alkaline because toxins are most easily released in an alkaline state.
The body rids itself of toxins in many ways. You may be familiar with some of the more dramatic forms of elimination such as vomiting, diarrhea and excessive mucous or phlegm released during illness. Cleansing allows the body to eliminate toxins in a more gentle way and start a healing process. Periodic cleansing with a proper diet can act as a preventative for many common illnesses.
Excellent herbal preparations are on the market today that combine the benefits of herbs with modern day convenience. Complete cleansing programs are available in tablet and liquid form. With today’s testing methods, more advanced formulas have been created with specific applications. These can work right down to the cellular level, drawing toxins from deep within the cells.
Herbal cleanses in homeopathic form are excellent for children because of their purity, gentleness and safety. If a child has suffered from ear infections, colds, flus, etc. over the winter, a cleanse gives them a fresh start and enables their immune system to become strong again when toxic accumulations are eliminated. The Wild Rose Herbal D-Tox kit is a very popular cleanse that many find an excellent way to detoxify once or twice a year.
A cleanse is only the beginning of a good program. The benefits felt from a cleanse can be extended for a long time by watching the diet and using herbal teas or supplements such as burdock, red clover and dandelion. These herbs are known for their blood purification properties and help to continually detoxify the body.
Spring can be a beautiful time of year when you’re feeling your best, renewed from the effects of winter and anticipating the coming delights of the season of rebirth.
