Learn how to detoxify your body and strengthen your system naturally with this helpful guide.

Spring—ain’t it grand? If you are anticipating warm weather, flowers and the feeling that life is starting again after a long, sleepy winter stuck indoors, then you may be interested in a spring cleanse. And spring is the perfect time to turn over a new leaf, physically and spiritually.

Regardless of how conscientious we are about our health and fitness, our bodies are under constant assault from pollutants. Many toxins are as close as the air we breathe. Although our bodies are designed to eliminate toxins, the sheer volume of pollutants we encounter can tax our natural detoxification systems. Learn how to detoxify your body naturally with the following herbs and tips.

Strengthen and Detoxify Your System

Many natural healing systems take account of the seasons and the effect that cold, light and weather have on the body. According to Ayurveda (traditional Indian medicine), naturopathy and Traditional Chinese Medicine, for instance, body energy mirrors the seasons. Winter is the time to nourish the body and let it rest, to conserve and build the qi (vital energy).

Come spring, we feel the need to get up and exercise, not to mention cleanse and detoxify our systems with the young greens that are beginning to grow. Increasing physical activity, as well as the amount of natural fiber we eat, helps rid the body of all that waste accumulated over the winter.

Spring also is the time of year in which the liver’s energy is resurging and is seen as an excellent time to cleanse this most important of organs.
