Spring has finally arrived (hooray!). After a long winter many of us are excited to tackle spring projects. Did you know that your body instinctively starts a spring cleaning of its own? According to Chinese medicine, spring is a transitional time for the body when internal energy starts to expand. The liver is given an additional boost to cleanse the body during this energy expansion. This fact makes spring an excellent season to boost your body’s natural detoxification system.

Eight Benefits of Cleansing

Why is cleansing beneficial? The liver is your body’s main detoxification organ. It cleanses the blood of toxins accumulated from the environment and from poor diet. However, in today’s toxic world, sometimes the liver needs a little outside help in the form of a cleanse. Here are eight benefits you can expect from a cleanse:

Increased Energy – Cleansing the liver of toxins allows you to derive the most nutrition from your food. When you're getting the maximum nutrients from your food, the result is increased energy.

Better GI Function – The gastrointestinal tract also benefits from cleansing. Yeast, fungus, and other micro-toxins flourish in a GI tract that is crowded with sludge and toxins. Cleansing will reduce the presence of harmful bacteria and restore balance to your GI tract.

Clearer Skin – The skin is considered a secondary elimination organ. When the liver is taxed, the body will expel toxins through the skin. If you have occasional or frequent breakouts, it’s definitely time for a cleanse.

Improved Eating Habits – When foods that cause allergic reactions, or contain harmful toxins are eliminated, it opens up a whole new world of healthy eating. The effects of the cleanse are often so positive that one doesn’t want to risk losing the good health gained by falling back into unhealthy eating habits.

Improved Mood – What we eat greatly impacts our feel-good neurotransmitters, such as serotonin. Much of our serotonin originates in the gut. By cleansing the liver, digestion is allowed to proceed normally and toxins, which affect our gut health, are eliminated.

Clearer Thinking – Many toxins create what we call “brain fog,” which feels exactly as it sounds. By cleansing the body of toxins and their byproducts, we allow cleansed blood to flow freely to the brain. The result? Clearer thinking!

Reduction in Disease-Related Symptoms – Many find that constipation, GERD, diverticulitis, and hypertriglyceremia are greatly improved, or even disappear after cleansing.

Weight Loss – While weight loss is not the main objective of cleansing, it is often a welcome side effect.
