Spring is here!!! I’m so excited for the new season, my favorite season. I know we all have been waiting for a change in the weather, especially with all the snow. The snow has kept us isolated but now its time to get out in the world and enjoy mother nature!
One of the most important things to know is once seasons change our bodies begin to change as well. Our body renews itself to correspond with the environment. You will be surprised how the environment and our bodies go hand in hand.
Its time of rejuvenation. Everything around us is rejuvenating, so therefore we must rejuvenate ourselves. One of the best ways to rejuvenate your body is cleansing your immune system. It’s important to drink 8 glasses of water daily. Try to drink filtered water rather than bottled water. If you choose to drink bottled water try to keep it out of the heat.
Eliminate all foods with preservatives, artificial coloring’s and chemicals. READ LABELS. Fruit and vegetables are your best friends, they protect from various diseases. Eating 8 to 10 servings of vegetables and fruit a day will be very rewarding to your body.
We also need to increase the pure oxygen in our environment because we breath in toxins daily. Decorating with plants in your home will be helpful and adds a little Feng Shui. In highly polluted areas use an air filter or Himalayan salt lamps. Also, aerobic exercise and yoga elevates oxygen in our cells.
We must also try to keep our over the counter prescription drugs to a minimum. Replacing those drugs with herbs and vitamins will benefit your body more. Herbs and vitamins aren’t harsh, filled with chemicals, or dangerous side effects versus prescribed drugs.
Avoiding constipation is necessary on so many levels. Over the counter laxatives can be dangerous. Over time over the counter laxatives can damage the colon. Plenty water, fruit, fiber, and exercise will be rewarding to your colon. If you must take a laxative use an herbal one but only occasionally. Consulting a colon hydrotherapist, such as myself, is well necessary if you have chronic constipation.
Another benefit to rejuvenate your body is to exercise regularly. Exercising 4 hours a week will decrease your chances of diseases and stress. This does not mean that you have to kill yourself. Keep at the same pace for at least 30 minutes will get your cardio pumping. Simple as walking briskly will make a big difference. During Spring, the weather is perfect for you to walk outside. It tends not to be too cold or hot. And there is a briskness to the air. Why not go for a walk that will de-stress your body and mind while helping to get your body renewed?!
In ancient China, the Tao Te Ching said “Whatever is flexible and flowing will tend to grow, whatever is rigid and blocked will wither and die”. Our life is always changing remember to be flexible in all aspects of it! Have a wonderful and blessed week everyone.
