I love fall! I look forward to this season as much as I looked forward to Christmas morning as a child. There is something calming and grounding about this season for me. I love the crispness in the air and the spices that make their way into our food and drink.
Fall is also a season that affects us internally, causing a shift in our body’s ability to fight off common ailments. A fall detox should focus on the lungs, the liver and the large intestine. These organs are linked to skin and breathing problems like asthma, eczema, rashes and dry skin—which happen to be the most common things to ail us in the colder months.
The change from the warmer summer season to the cooler fall season can lead to both mental and physical burnout, stressing our adrenals and nervous system and putting some of the body’s natural detoxification processes on hold, like you liver.
Your liver is your body’s natural detoxifier, helping your body to rid itself from the toxins you are exposed to. We encounter toxins in many forms from the food we eat, the bath and body products we use, to the medication we are prescribed, and the air we breathe. An overburdened liver can lead to migraines, weight gain, irritability, rashes, and even anger. When your body cannot process toxins it creates the ideal environment for the cold and flu viruses. So it is really no coincidence that we see increases in those during the colder months.
Let’s embrace this amazing season and support our bodies by preparing them for the colder months ahead.
Many cleanses ask you to partake in drastic fasts or encourage unhealthy behaviors that cause more stress on your body. A beneficial cleanse needs to include nourishing foods, herbs, and self-care techniques. The focus should be on rejuvenating the body rather than simply stripping it down and making it susceptible to the colder months.
I am leading a fall cleanse that is all about whole foods and clean eating, superfoods, adaptogen, medicinal herbs and probiotics. All designed to nourish and support your body’s detoxification process and strengthen the immune system. You will get incredible superfood nutrition, daily support, and Holistic Health Coach (me), a private VIP accountability group and more!
