It’s detox season! Spring is the best time to hit the reset button and assess what we’re feeding our physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies. It’s a time to cleanse the system and focus on self-care habits. I'm so ready to step in this year to boost my immunity. Are you?
This year it’s particularly important to give ourselves a good cleanse to boost immunity. A robust immune system fights off viruses better than a sluggish, inefficient system. Detoxing the Ayurvedic way can help us reduce inflammation and decrease the stress on our bodies, which will help our immune systems function efficiently.
Detoxing is a natural bodily process that is optimized when we eat an early dinner, fast for 13 or more hours after dinner, and get a good night's sleep. However, most of us don’t do this.
Under the current circumstances, a lot of us are now home all day long. For many, this means higher than usual amounts of stress and unlimited access to the kitchen. Rather than giving our body time to digest, it’s easy to fall into the habit of eating throughout the day, overlapping meals and snacks in a way that gives our GI tract quite the workout.
A lot of energy goes into processing all that food, so the body has less time to focus on healing. As a culture, we’re also consuming more processed food than ever. This wreaks additional havoc on our digestive system. When we combine this with a lack of movement throughout the day, our bodies’ functions (including digestion) are slowed down and we, too, become sluggish.
If you’re feeling sluggish even after a huge morning dose of caffeine, are experiencing brain fog, or you’re simply not feeling vibrant, your body is begging for a detox.
A detox will flush your digestive system, and restore it back to a robust processor of waste and toxins. It will boost your immunity. It will clear the brain fog. You will have more energy throughout the day, and begin to hone your intuition. Are you in?
