The Importance of Seasonal Cleansing and Eating
Fall is a season of transition; the perfect time to reset your system and prime your body to thrive in the winter months.
During the summer months, our bodies tend to build up heat in our tissues. As the fall weather moves in–marked by wind and cooler temperatures–any unreleased heat in our tissues can lead to stagnation. This stagnation can show up as fatigue, brain fog, an extra 10 lbs, mental and physical burnout, adrenal stress and accumulated metabolic waste in our fatty tissues.
Seasonal cleansing using seasonal foods is a practice dating back 5,000 years. Utilized in Ayurveda, seasonal cleansing can clean the body’s channels, strengthen digestion, clear metabolic waste and break negative habits. Fall is time when we get ready for the “storing season” so our bodies need be cleaned and prepared for the winter months, both physically and emotionally.
A focused fall cleanse can help you stave off seasonal colds, keep your immune system healthy, and prepare your organs for the colder months ahead. Emotionally it can also help foster a clearer and more focused mental state.
Top 3 Cleansing Foods for Fall
Here are a few of my favorite fall cleansing foods.
Beets have been shown to provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support. They are also filled with folate, fiber, and potassium.
Brussels sprouts are packed with vitamin C, fiber, folate, vitamin K and calcium, antioxidants and phytochemicals making them an immune system booster and high fiber digestion regulator.
Cranberries have one of the highest antioxidant loads of any fruit. This tiny fruit has also been shown to fight harmful bacteria, lower inflammation, and balance acidity.
