6 Tips to reduce your health for Spring plus 7 day Detox Program
As you transition from the cooler months into the warmer weather of spring listen to your body! Here are my 6 tips to use in making this transition.
Listen to your body
Ease out of your winter diet slowly, gradually integrating raw and cool foods back into your diet slowly
Take time for yourself
Every day take 15 minutes and do what YOU want to do to nourish yourself
Get yourself outside
Warmer weather makes it more fun to go outside and enjoy the amazing outdoors we have on this peninsula.
Get your body moving while outside, walk by the ocean, in a park, bushwalking or cycling these are such pleasurable things to do. Amazing what a bit of sunshine and fresh air can do to revitalize your winter body and bring back some of that zing!
You may have a spring in your step but that doesn’t mean you have to live in the fast lane. Be mindful in your day to day activities, eat slowly, live with an open heart and thoughtfully, take time to meditate.
Indulge in healthy foods
Spring means gorgeous fresh produce and many new varieties of fruit and vegetables to introduce into your diet. Enjoy the variety of beautiful colours and experiment with combinations of vegetables. Raw juicing enlivens the body and is the 15 minute nutrient express to better health.
Keep it Simple
We can complicate so many things in our lives, keep your foods real, fresh and wholesome, local and in season of possible. Visit the local markets.
7 Day Detox Program
In much the same way you need a holiday from work, your body needs a break from time to time, especially when you are feeling tired, sick, heavy or just plain run down.
Detoxification is a normal process within the body as it neutralizes and eliminates the toxins through the major organs such as our liver, colon, kidney, lungs, lymph and skin. Our bodies do it naturally every, in fact it is one of our most basic automatic functions. But what if our self-cleansing system is overloaded by our unhealthy lifestyle and exposure to environmental toxins. Detoxification through a special cleansing program may be the missing link to disease prevention, especially for immune- deficiency diseases like cancer, arthritis, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome and candida.
Our diet, with an overabundance of animal protein, too much saturated fat and too much caffeine and alcohol radically alters our internal ecosystem. But even if your diet is good, a cleanse can restore your immune system and protect yourself against environmental toxins that pave the way for disease bearing bacteria, viruses and parasites.
Here is a check list to use if you’re in need of a detox:
- Do you feel bloated, constipated and congested? (digestion under stress)
- Have you gained unwanted weight even though you are not eating more food? (food intolerances/ adrenal stress)
- Do you feel tired and low in energy? ( signs of an acidic diet)
- Have you had issues with your digestion? ( your body isn’t absorbing its nutrients well)
- Is your hair and skin looking unhealthy, dull and dry? ( vitamin deficiencies)
- Do you frequently get mouth ulcers, yeast infections, urinary tract infections, unusual allergies? ( immune system under stress)
- Do you feel foggy and out of sorts? ( gluten intolerance, gut disbiosis)
- Do you feel like you need to clear the cobwebs from your brain? (stress, gluten intolerance)
If you have three or more of the above, then a detox might just be what your body needs to regain its balance.
