Cleaning out your body is as important as what you put in! Cleansing was practiced even in Rome and Greece as great healing practices. it is also part of most all spiritual traditions. If you are familiar with any religious tradition, they all have a cleanse of sorts before their high holy holidays. All peoples, religions, philosophies and ancient healers inspired cleansing as a practice to support making a clean vessel for your spirit. As spring approaches, it is traditionally a time to clean the body from the winter months and be clear for spring action.
Spring and fall are the usual times to do a clean out of the body. We do this in our homes, cars, offices. In spring and fall, it is just a nature urge to want to clean and clear out. It is ever greater for our body for it is our vehicle we move in. We stuff ourselves often in winter as our closets can get. It is hinders our health. No worries. We can just cleanse it as we would any other space and renew, rejuvenate and refresh ourselves.
I have done many cleanses in spring and fall over the years. I have done the Master Cleanse of water, cayenne pepper and maple syrup for one day a week for 4 weeks. I have eaten raw food for a period of time. I have done the Standard Process Cleanse for 11 days mostly and once for 21 days, I find them absolutely important to feeling clean and healthful. I also learn about how I relate to food, emotional eating patterns, what my body really needs and what works for it. I can't encourage you enough to try some form of cleanse. It is an easy healthful practice done best in spring and fall.
