🦋1. Spring is a time of transition.
In Ayurveda, Spring and Fall are known as “transitional seasons”, making them the ideal months to perform a cleanse and start anew. On a microcosmic level, a time of transition is considered a very special time for making positive changes in your life. Therefore, cleansing out our bodies and de-cluttering our minds is an essential way to blossom into a new time of year.
🏵2. Spring provides the perfect weather for a cleanse.
During a cleanse our energy can be low, our senses heightened and our bodies more susceptible to imbalance. For these reasons, it is ideal to avoid extremes of any kind including the extreme heat and severe cold; making it a more balanced time to take advantage of a Springtime cleanse!
💐3. Allergies are in the air.
Common symptoms of allergies include congestion, inflammation, foggy mind, low immunity, sluggish digestion and high Kapha. For all of these reasons, a cleanse will be most beneficial in order to treat Springtime allergies. In fact, if you already know you are susceptible to allergies this time of year, it would be best to perform the cleanse BEFORE their onset, as prevention is always easier than treatment (when possible).
🍀4. Spring Cleanses help to remove the accumulated Kapha from the previous winter months.
Common Kapha symptoms such as winter weight gain, stagnation, low motivation, fatigue, foggy mind, congestion, allergies and overeating are all too common this time of year.
🌿5. Cleansing lightens our loads
Winter is the time of year for eating a bit more and moving a bit less. Although this is the way of nature, it is important to also realize that Spring is the time of year to eat a bit lighter and gearing up for a more active season. Performing a Spring cleanse is a great way to set the stage for readjusting the diet and lifestyle, paving the way for healthier food choices and increasing motivation for movement.
