Summer is here and the first thing many of us associate with this season is "vacation" - a time to slow down, de-stress, rest, and relax. Well, it's also the perfect time to detox our bodies too.
We live in a toxic world. More and more research is showing how these toxins are affecting our internal environment. What we eat everyday matters. Habits add up and the bad ones take their toll. So, if you want a quick way to ramp up your energy, clear your mind, and lighten the toxic load on your body, trying a gentle, food-based cleanse can make a big difference in how you look and feel.
Summer offers a bounty of cooling, water-filled, and antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables that are just what your body needs for a gentle and nourishing cleanse. You'll want to maximize your intake of this seasonal produce to harness and promote the healing potential of the season.
Summer is a great time of year to hydrate our bodies and establish a feeling of lightness and balance. Water-filled fruits and vegetables are abundant this time of year and it's a sign from nature to lighten our diet in order to counter the summer heat. This practice helps to balance the body, mind, and spirit and reduce excess heat, irritability, anger, anxiety, and inflammation, which are common symptoms of too much heat in the body.
"I like to do a cleanse with the change of each season, as a reminder of good habits for a healthy eating plan and to get me out of whatever rut I might be in with cravings or addictions."
- Heather Nichols
A cleanse is our opportunity to slow down, to quiet what's coming into our body, and to activate our systems of detoxification and elimination, resulting in feeling stronger, leaner, healthier, and better able to cope with the many challenges that life presents.
