When the weather warms up and the flowers start to bloom, it’s time for spring cleaning, or spring cleansing. We can finally open the windows and start dusting what has settled over the winter. Along with cleaning the house and swapping out my winter clothes for shorts and T-shirts, I want to be sure I cleanse my body, too.
We live in a toxic environment and our bodies are bombarded with chemicals and other potentially harmful substances on a daily basis. Toxins are found in the food we eat, the air we breathe, and the water we drink. They can also be found in commercially packaged products we buy and probably use every day. These toxins are causing us to be ill.
How do I know if I need to detox?
The following signs may indicate toxic overload in the body. If you suffer from any of these on a regular basis, you might try cleansing and see if they disappear.
- Low energy
- Mental fog or trouble focusing
- Having trouble losing weight
- Intestinal or digestive upset
How do toxins enter the body?
Toxins enter the body through inhalation, through our gastrointestinal tract and through our skin.
Things like painting the house, varnishing the furniture, bringing home new furniture, dry cleaning, and cooking are all sources of many indoor air pollutants. Household cleaning products and toiletries contribute to indoor air toxins. We end up inhaling these toxins or absorbing them through our skin. Things like chemicals used in agriculture, fumes, air pollution and many other factors contribute to internal toxins. Consider using natural cleaning products or homemade remedies for cleaning the house.
When we drink caffeine and alcohol, we are ingesting toxins. When we eat bread, cheese and processed meat, we are ingesting salt, saturated fats, chemicals, hormones and antibiotics that all put a strain on the liver. These things can also cause high blood pressure, bloating and kidney problems. Medications, food additives, preservatives, food colorings, sweeteners and flavor enhancers contribute to internal toxins as well.

Eating leafy greens and sprouted foods may help cleanse your body. Leafy greens, such as arugula, bok choy, endive, kale, lettuce, mustard greens, cabbage, spinach, Swiss chard and wild greens contain vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and chlorophyll, which help purify the blood and organs. Bulking up your diet with these foods can help your body. Consider adding several of these to your daily regimen to help create better health and vitality.
