As we (at least here in Idaho) watch the snow melt away (hopefully soon), we know Spring is on it’s way. This is the time of year Mother Earth renews herself, and celebrates with blooming flowers and new leaves.  While we aren’t always aware, our own bodies are also beginning to shift with the change of season. This is a great time to reset, restore and cleanse our mind and body with a seasonal cleanse to leave us healthier and stronger.

What is a “cleanse?”
“De-Tox” and “cleanse” have different meanings to different people. And don’t worry… when I speak of “cleanse,” I am not suggesting a starvation detox that consists of lemon water and fruit. An Ayurvedic cleanse is a time-tested, gentle cleansing approach that nourishes the body, while setting up an environment for the elimination of toxins.  This sets you up for optimal health.  The best part?!  You get to eat simple, yet delicious foods with a variety of herbs and spices to optimize your digestion.  In an Ayurvedic cleanse there are three phases:  the preparatory, the cleanse and the post-cleanse, where you reset your digestion to transition back into a diverse diet.

Why Cleanse?
The unfortunate reality is we live in a world full of toxic substances. In our food we find pesticides, antibiotics, microbes, mercury, and more – even if we are eating organic. Our air also carries pollutants, which then get absorbed into the body. The good news is our body has a system to detox. A cleanse will support this system, and – when done properly – will leave you feeling rejuvenated, and healthier than when you started.

Cleanse Benefits
A cleanse comes with many benefits, in both mind and body: improved digestion, a sense of calm, and balanced sleep cycles. A cleanse will reset your natural balance, and you will feel rejuvenated!

Interesting in a cleanse?  I offer guided cleanses, and can do consultations in person or by phone.  For those of you in Valley County Idaho, I will be offering a guided group cleanse throughout the month of April – stay tuned for details!  For more information, please contact me at jean@theyogamomma.com
