Get in the groove with this simple
3 course 4-day Spring Detox program
Imagine you’re a flower. It might sound funny, but just go with it. So, you’re this flower that’s been quietly hibernating all winter long, waiting for the sun to come out and the temperature to rise so you can blossom again. The weird thing is that when the sunshine and spring conditions finally arrive, you’re not growing—not an inch. In fact, you’re drooping a bit and your head is low. It turns out that the groundwater you’ve been taking in through your roots is loaded with toxins, and now there’s a build-up of some bad stuff in your stems. Though your body has a self-cleaning process, it’s overloaded right now. What you need is a detox.
“Detoxification” means the removal of toxins from the body. Just like flowers, humans absorb toxins—preservatives, pesticides, stimulants, and heavy metals—through food, water, and air. Also, your own body produces toxins, called metabolic waste products, as a natural result of processes like digestion and respiration. Luckily, your digestive, endocrine, and circulatory systems come equipped with a complex set of mechanisms designed to eliminate these toxins through your mouth, eyes, skin, colon, urinary tract—even your breath. The trouble is that too much sugar, caffeine, and processed foods, little to no exercise, and stress can slow the body’s natural detox function to a sluggish pace. The result is a build-up of toxins that can leave you fatigued and suffering from poor digestion, and that may even lead to disease. But, you can help boost your innate detox functions by practicing balanced lifestyle.
We at Acushastra aim for one simple thing: to help the body do what it’s already trying to do with the help of acupuncture tools like:
- Cupping: Cupping stimulates tissue relaxation and better cell-to-cell communication. It enhances digestive system and stimulates nervous system. Cupping loosens connective tissue or fascia and stimulates blood flow to the surface of the body.
- Acupuncture: Acupuncture works as a natural diuretic and helps the body to eliminate toxins through urine with the help of cleansing organs such as the kidneys, colon, skin and liver. The process is believed to balance Qi which is an important life energy force that creates nourishment and alignment of body functions.
- Nutrition: It is designed to give maximum nutritional benefit and reduce digestive time so the body can concentrate more on detox function without feeling weak.
According to acupuncture principles, winters are the month when the body enters into hibernation and stores. Spring is followed by winters wherein body decides what is essential to preserve and what is not. Metabolic wastes that are not required is brought to the surface during the spring season. Hence doing a detox especially during spring helps to eliminate what the body has already decided not required. Spring Detox helps all the systems like digestive, circulatory, excretory, nervous and all organs to work more efficiently throughout the year. Throughout the detox, powerful feelings and insights may pop up “The most dramatic effect that people notice is mental “At first the mind may become a little fuzzy because of the toxins being released and excreted.
