Spring Cleansing Part 2: The Cleansing Power of Foods

Veg

“By nature the month of April, can give you a total new lease, eat light and eat right. In spite of the taxes and cleaning the houses and all other stuff, this is one time that you can give yourself a new sprouting energy.” Yogi Bhajan

Our diet should support the body’s natural detoxification processes by ensuring that we are taking in the right balance of nutrients at the same time as not burdening the system with congesting toxins.

So when are considering foods for cleansing, we need to consider what we put in….and what we take out! What this looks like ultimately is an alkalising diet, which is primarily a plant-based, whole food diet, low in animal protein, dairy, processed grains, sugar, alcohol and caffeine. READ MORE

 

Spring Cleansing Part 1: From the Inside Out

Spring flowers

Spring is in the air and everything that meets my gaze from the budding crocuses to the flowering blossom makes my heart sing with optimism. The promise of new growth, a fresh start and a little more warmth in the air stirs us out of hibernation and into action. It’s the perfect time for turning our attention to spring-cleaning within, so the next three blogs will all be around the subject of detoxification, a corner stone of naturopathic practice.

In the first of this detox trio, I’ll be sharing some facts on the importance of optimum hydration and physical detoxification protocols that impact profoundly on the health of our internal organs.

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY DETOXING?

Our bodies are constantly under siege from toxins. Some are by products of normal body functions, some are ingested, such as caffeine and over the counter drugs, and then there are environmental pollutants like mercury in fillings or flame retardant chemicals in soft furnishings.

All these factors increase the toxic burden on the systems and organs of our bodies. But I’m happy to report that we can take steps to neutralise and discharge accumulated waste and build up of toxins by supporting the body’s own elimination channels: the bowel, liver, kidney and bladder, skin and mucous membranes, lungs and the lymphatic system.

    "I had never really 'got' yoga until I happened upon Anna's Kundalini classes and now I can't imagine life without it.  I look forward to each class and invariably come out buzzing and simultaneously energised and relaxed.  At a practical level, I feel more strong and toned and supple and it helps keep my RSI and shoulder problems in check.  But over time, I have felt it touch me more deeply and permeate my life in unexpected ways.  I feel more bold and adventurous, more calm and more cheerful.  Anna teaches with seriousness and care but also with a lightness, grace and humour that create a wonderful environment in which to learn."
