FALL is here...Harvest....Abundance
If you don't have your own garden to harvest from, the Farmer's Markets & Grocery stores are loaded with goodies this time of year. Its also a great time to think about boosting your wellness routine with a Fall Cleanse. In this time of Covid-19 we want to boost our immune system as we head into cold & flu season.
Cleansing, includes anything from fasting or just removing some items from the diet. Everyone has heard of juice cleanses, sugar detox. but just as Fall is a time for change doing a general cleanse is a great thing as the transition between the long humid hot, summer weather and the cold, wet weather of the winter. With the shorter days and inside more, with cool darker days our mood and energy levels may begin to lull.
During this time supporting the body's natural detox from and splurges, summers vacations and other fun by forcing us to slow down, get more sleep, eat more warming, comforting foods and beverages. Doing all we can to support our body’s natural processes, it’s helpful to do a gentle cleanse at this time of year.
Some benefits of a gentle cleanse include:
- Increased clarity and suppleness of skin
- Increased energy
- Liver stimulation and support
- Increased energy
- Improved digestion
- Improved immunity
- Improved quality of sleep
- Stabilized blood sugar
- Decreased inflammation
- Increased feeling of wellbeing
- Mild weight loss
- Reduced sugar and caffeine cravings
And so many more…
In as little as three days, you could see improvement in digestion, decreased inflammation, reduce sugar and cravings for unhealthy foods. While most people see positive changes in the 3 days doing a longer cleanse is going to help with blood sugar regulation, liver support, and a robust sense of wellbeing.

Every year an increasing number of children and adults are diagnosed with new illnesses. These include allergies, ADD/ADHD, behavior disorders, asthma, stomach problems, geriatric concerns, autoimmune problems, PDD, PMS, stress, hormonal imbalances, depression, Insect borne illnesses and more.
Our society is changing rapidly and medical science is constantly challenged to reevaluate and keep up and integrate new practices. The medical information gained by leading scientists has provided the undeniable evidence that imbalances of important vitamins, minerals, amino acids, certain chemicals, and infections play a direct role in our health.
There is little doubt that diet, genetics, and environmental factors contribute to the growing numbers of chronically sick children and adults.
