Here are some of my favorite Cleanses to start in February or March! Why this time of year? Spring time is a great time to cleanse the liver. If you are seeing me regularly you know this is when I start encouraging clients to start looking at there diet. You may remember me talking about the emotions of the Liver last year, and why it is important to cleanse. Spring is the time of Wood element, and a time to give your Liver and Gallbladder a break. Liver energy in its healthy form feeds the heart so that we experience joy in our cycles of learning and during growth periods! We set healthy boundaries with Joy, and can experience “the knowing” that we are just where we need to be, right here, right now. Liver energy out of balance leads to irritability and anger. Long term constrained Liver Qi leads to depression. So, can you see where I am going with this?!? So here are some ideas to get our bodies happy and healthy for the summer!
Just cut out of your diet Sugar, Alcohol, and Caffeine. Give your self 4-6weeks of loving your body by removing these strong chemically altering foods from your diet. You can replace sugar with Stevia or Xylitol. I love green tea in the morning instead of caffeine. I also love Kombucha as a way to relax at night, and get some good probiotics after dinner! You may just feel better, and realize you are not missing your old habits at all!
Supplement Support While Cleansing!
(Take me up on 25% off good through April)
This is my favorite liver cleanse. The shake helps you keep to the anti-inflammatory diet by cutting your cravings, and you feel good while you are doing it! Along with this supplement, one needs to replace sugar, wheat, alcohol, and caffeine, dairy, night shades, soy, and corn with:
organic chicken and fish
grass fed beef or lamb
whole grains such as brown rice, quinoa, and millet.
This fairly simple cleanse (as far as cleanses go) gives the liver a much needed break. I suggest at least a 4-6 week cleanse and I like to encourage a step further and just eat veggies, whole grains, fruits, and nuts for one of those weeks. By May you will feel the surge of energy from giving your body a break, and your outlook on life might just change along with your diet!
Apple Cider Vinegar
Take the supplemental cleanse a step further and add the apple cider vinegar drink to the cleanse. Especially the week that you go Vegan!
