It's a common practice to detox at least four times per year, once with every change of season. Doing this cleanses our bodies and helps to remove any toxins that exist from stress, lifestyle choices, and even environmental factors.
It's no secret that our taste changes and the foods we eat change with the turn of the seasons. We go from cold, fresh fruits and vegetables to more warm and hearty meals. Completing a Fall Detox can help prepare your body for these changes and withdraw any toxins or build-ups created from the hot, summer months.
Your body may give off signals letting you know it's time for a detox; these may include allergies, digestive problems, fatigue, acne or other skin issues, bad breath, bad circulation, headaches, bloating, and weight gain. By doing a simple cleanse or detox you should see immediate improvements and benefits including better sleep, more energy, improved digestion, clearer skin, weight loss, and even a reduce in cravings.
A fall detox will also help prepare your immune system for the exposures to come, especially with kids back to school (where did the summer go?). Typically the fall detox focuses more on the lungs and large intestine, which are important for circulation, heart health, and proper digestion.
Here are some general tips to help with your Fall Detox:
