Fall: Time For A Quick Detox
Native Americans followed a cleansing schedule of 4 times a year in correlation with the seasons. They would take herbs, do purgatives and sweat out impurities. We need to be doing the same..
Be aware of what the body needs
Now that we have entered into the Fall season, the body is beginning to physically change. We need to be conscious of its needs at this time, to set us up for optimal health...
The word “equinox” comes from the Latin aequus, meaning, “equal” and nox, meaning, “night.” On the day of the Equinox, day and night are equal in time- a big shift from the long days of summer. In the Fall, the sun rises later and nightfall comes sooner, peaking at the December Solstice when we officially move into the Winter season.
With all the Celestial changes upon us, the body is letting go of high water foods from the summer and moving into the Fall harvest of hearty vegetables and the desire for more grounding food to prepare for the colder months ahead.
help balance the body
To help balance the body and give it what it needs, consider doing a session of Colon Hydrotherapy or a combination of Lymphatic Drainage and Colon Hydrotherapy for the needed hydration from the dryness of the season and the clearing of the Liver for Hormonal balance. Sweat it out and come warm up with a friend or spouse in our new Infrared Sauna. We are currently running a 2 for 1 special on this amazing detox.
Many foods available in the Fall correlate with the system or body parts that need strengthening. Use your intuition in these colder seasons. Look at what you are not desiring to eat -frozen and cold foods- and recognize you’re starting to crave seasonal foods like persimmons, root vegetables, apples, squashes and potatoes. It’s all designed to have you eating the nutrients your immune system will need for the harsh winter.
A colonic will reset your microbiome and clear any microbes from travel and less than perfect eating over the last season. Let it all go with a quick pick-me-up of a session and feel balanced and restored as you move into your busy year ahead!
