At this time of year, it’s time to detox. We’re ready to peel off our heavy winter clothes and spring into life while basking in the warmer weather. Trips to the beach and romps in the park once again feature as weekend activities.
Likewise, in Oriental Medicine spring is all about movement, flexibility, energy, growth and new beginnings. Our bodies are eager to shake off the winter; the organ system that corresponds to spring is the Liver. Liver energy wants to expand and grow like a tree in spring. Its function lies in providing the smooth movement of Blood, Qi and our emotions throughout the body. It serves to wake up our system and get it ready for the demands of the busy times ahead.
The Liver energy is intimately connected to the digestive system, metabolism and detoxification. Therefore, spring is the best season for a good Liver cleanses starting with detox drinks.
So many of us work hard and feel like we can barely get through each day without needing an energy boost. We often turn to sugar for a quick pick-me-up, but that’s really doing our body more harm than good.
Many people don’t realise the sluggish and even bloated feeling sometimes felt during the day can be the result of excess toxins in the body. The good news is it’s possible to spring clean the system, clear toxins from the body, and feel better. The best part is that it’s not hard to do and you can enjoy some great-tasting drinks along the way.
Detox drinks help to naturally reduce inflammation, boost energy, support digestion, cleanse the liver and promote healthy skin.
Every week, we will post a new blog to do with Detox drinks – keep your eyes out!
