Spring Cleaning

Spring Cleaning
Happy Spring! It's the season for cleansing: shedding the old so we can make room for the new! According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, this time of year is associated with the liver and gallbladder, both of which are detoxification organs. They have a brother-sister relationship, where when one is affected, so is the other. Both organs are critical for supporting detoxification and digestion, as well as supporting women's health & hormonal balance.
Does Your Liver Need Love?
The liver is your body's main detoxification organ, responsible for over 500 different functions. When the liver gets congested, you still start to feel and see this throughout the entire body. Everything from digestion to sleep to energy and mood is affected. One area that's often overlooked is the connection between your liver and hormones. Your hormones must be metabolized through the liver, so ensuring the liver is working efficiently is key for your hormone health. If excess hormones circulate in the body and aren't metabolized, health issues will begin.
The Cholesterol Connection
The liver also happens to be the site of cholesterol synthesizing and clearing. If the liver is stagnant or congested, cholesterol levels can rise. To best support lowering cholesterol levels, consider a liver detox, such as this 7-Day Liver Detox, or select a liver support from the products below. In addition to detoxing the liver, changes to diet may be necessary. Focus on an anti-inflammatory diet with organic fruits & veggies, good quality protein, omega-3s & quality fats and whole grains. The liver especially loves bitter greens, like kale and cruciferous vegetables.
Consider Castor Oil Packs
Castor Oil Packs are an amazing modality for supporting liver detoxification. They are easy and convenient to wear, and help keep the liver filtering and removing toxins. They can help improve digestion and alleviate bloating, as well as help with clearing excess hormones to bring hormonal harmony. Castor Oil also has the ability to stimulate the lymphatic system, helping to support overall immunity & can help with the appearance of skin, such as reducing unwanted cellulite.
