Spring Detox with Dr. Kathy Chavez, ND, and Michelle Goebel-Angel, LAc, MSOM

Spring DetoxSpring will soon be here. The retrun of light and warmth allows us to notice the cobwebs and clutter that have been accumulating in our homes over the long winter. The equivalent build-up of toxins has alsooccrued in our bodies! 

Regardless of how well we eat, we all carry a heavy load of toxins.  Toxins in our environment from processed foods, polluted air and water, industrial by products, chemicals in toiletries, our furniture, cleaninig products, and even toxic relationships all put a daily strain on our body's ability to detoxify. 

Over time, this strain on our lives can lead to fatigue, general malaise, and the development of chronic disease.

According to Chinese Medicine, spring is inherently a time of awakening new energy, especially stimulating movement of our liver energy providing many gifts to encourage detoxifcation. 
Young, green plants are plentiful and add new life to our bodies, supporting the detoxification process.  Sour foods such as saurkraut and pickeled goods further support us during this time. 
Sunshine encourages us to get outside and move our bodies, thus raising Vitamin D levels and speeding upp our metabolism.  All these elements make Spring the ideal season to awaken the body's power to release inflammation and revitalize health.
