5 Things to Know Before you do a Spring Detox or Cleanse
As the warm weather approaches and thoughts turn to shedding our winter coats and boots, we often approach our diet with the same attitude. Here are 5 things to know before you do a spring detox of your diet this year:
1- A general cleanse is not for everyone
Believe it or not, a detox is often not recommended, at least not in the way we tend to understand the word detox. Juice fasts, eliminating all the ‘bad stuff’ overnight, winter cleanses etc.. are good ideas in theory, but often can be overwhelming for the body, and lead to a weakened energetic state.
2-Find out what type of cleanse best suits you
What factors should I be aware of when starting? When should I start? An individualized session with your homeopath is recommended to make sure you have these questions answered. Working with natural, gentle and time-proven remedies, homeopathy supports the healthy functioning of the body’s main organs and pathways of elimination.
3-Do you have a history of allergies? Or are you interested in preventing them?
This is also the time to think about commencing spring homeopathic intervention to prevent pollen and various inhalant allergies. Homeopathic drainage and immune stimulating remedies are essential measures.
4-Mind and emotions
A spring detox or cleanse will also address one’s engagement with the world, how one is perceiving and interacting with life, both in overt and subtle ways. Thus, the homeopathic process addresses mental and emotional health, and in particular, an exploration of where the ‘self’ is getting in the way of life. When the ‘self’ is liberated, our obsessive, often neurotic human nature is replaced with an inward strength and peace that is simple, yet profoundly improves health.
4-You don't need to fix you
You really don’t. If this is a strong belief you have, it might be part of what is compromising your energy. Contrary to many current paradigms of understanding, approaching health from the ‘it is broken, I must fix it’ belief system, leads to an endless experience of feeling that ‘there is something wrong with me’. Health is not fixing, but expanding one’s awareness of our deepest nature, as a human. And once again, this insight in of itself heals.
