Some people wait for Autumn to detox their bodies, is that a good thing? We met people who are big fans of detoxing their bodies once in a while, more times per year. If you want our opinion, you should cleanse your body when you feel the need to do so, at least once every year. If you choose to do your cleansing in the fall, you could have more success than doing it some other time.
Spring or Autumn Detox?
First of all, we’re not talking about a full body cleanse. That’s too much stress for yourself and some people are better off detoxing just one or two organs. For example, if you’re planning an Autumn detox, you should focus on your lungs and large intestine. According to alternative and conventional medicine, these organs are also linked to skin and breathing problems such as rashes, dry skin, eczema or asthma, all of the most common things we encounter in the colder weather.
Usually people detox their bodies during Spring or Fall, but the cleansing process is different.
Spring – you remove toxins from your body stored during winter and prepare your body for summer.
Fall – you prepare your body (digestion and cellular metabolism) for the colder months.
Tips & Tricks for Detoxing like a PRO
Drink More water. Our bodies already have a detoxing mechanism working every day but some times, the toxic substances are too much. Boosting your water intake to an acceptable level will put your body back on track, cleansing naturally. Doesn’t have to be complicated to work.
Drink LESS alcohol and caffeinated drinks. And by caffeinated drinks we’re not just talking about coffee. Why? They will dehydrate the body and you don’t want that during a detox. If you want to cut back on drinking these drinks you should gradually lower your intake during a longer time so you don’t experience withdrawal symptoms.
Don’t eat processed foods. and eat less meat, dairy and sugary foods to give your digestive system a break.
Take advantage of Autumn’s foods. You should add more nuts, seeds, avocados and pears in your diet to get essential healthy fats.
Exercise. We eliminate a lot of toxins through sweat so exercise is a great idea when planing to cleanse your body.
Don’t skip breakfast. If you can’t plan your daily meals due to a busy schedule, try not to forget about breakfast. It gives your body energy reserves so you don’t get hungry during the day and binge on unhealthy foods.
