With the onset of nice weather, its the time of year when we all start thinking about our spring-cleaning routines. We tidy the house, clean out the garage, and trim back the garden to make room for another year of freshness.
And while we're well versed in the cleansing routine of our home and gardens, we often don't consider purging what we've accumulated on the inside. Holiday meals, social indulgences and winter hibernation all pose an overload on our liver, a sluggishness on our digestion, and a dampening on our immune system.
Now, I often veer away from the term detox, as we commonly associate it with starving ourselves and purging our innards. In my opinion, this approach is neither healthy or helpful.
