I Spring, You Spring, We all Spring UP! Hello Spring! The season where we all should be springing up and forward to longer days outside with the sunshine out radiating us with its presence. We say spring up on this season because this is a time of the year that signifies new growth, rebirth, and renewal.
A time where we get to watch seeds sprout, flowers bloom, and longer days watching the sun warm the earth. All of our senses are on full alert as we get to see more light come into our days. In this article we share our Crucial Four Spring Cleaning Wellness Tips.
Many of us associate this time of year for a time of “Spring Cleaning”, whether it be in our homes, around our environment or ourselves. It is the time to bring in new energies and wake up the rested, stagnant, winter energies. Spring is the ideal time for cleansing and revitalizing ourselves since our bodies are waking up from being well rested through the winter months.
There are reasons why the seasons happen and in those reasons we find connections to how we can take care of our health to stay in perfect balance with our lives and nature.
Four Spring Cleaning Wellness Tips to help you radiate this spring!
TIP 1: Do a cleanse/restoration
The suggested cleanse to do this spring would be a liver/gallbladder cleanse. According to the philosophy of Chinese medicine, our liver is responsible for the smooth flowing of Qi (energy) throughout the body. When the liver functions smoothly, our body and mind is able to functions at its best. So, for optimum health this spring, move your Qi (energy)! You can start your cleanse with our mRejuvenate to help increase liver enzyme production. Our mRejuvenate has various liver detoxifying enzymes thats been found to be protective against infections and several gastrointestinal disorders. Adding our mRestore to your restoration regime will also help the body’s enzymes, hormones, antibodies, and free radical scavengers of the body.
There are other cleanses you could do also that will help thrive your health into the right direction, we offer these restoration cleanses here at Crucial Four, if you would like more information please come by or book an appointment here.
TIP 2: Eat your greens.
This season is by far the best season to go support your local farmers market. Grab all the wonderful, organic, spring, vegetable greens that are blooming to feed your body the natural minerals the body needs to help you feel sustained and energized.
Greens bring a great amount of fiber into the digestive tract to help it move and groove. The green foods also brings in a good amount of chlorophyll. There are several benefits to why chlorophyll should be a big part of your lifestyle. It can help control bad cravings, body odor, promote healthy iron levels, and is super potent antioxidant.
One other major benefit we love that chlorophyll helps with is CLEANSING. Believe it or not but our bodies are polluted with heavy toxic metals due to being in the industrial age, there’s air pollution everywhere. We have to make sure our bodies are cleansed from the heavy metals. Chlorophyll binds with toxic metals to hamper absorption, and research has shown it can do the same with some carcinogens.
Our Mega Boost is a great source for chlorophyll. It is made from the highest quality spirulina sourced right from the blue zone of South America’s Amazon region. Our spirulina is the most micro-nutrient dense algae in the world. This protein queen is brimming with magnesium, calcium, iron, antioxidants, B vitamins and other phytonutrients that are easy for your body to absorb. It is a super green that helps detoxifies the body while feeding it with the micro nutrients your body will love. Green is the color of spring so that right there should say something! By eating your greens you’ll see the benefits of it in your skin, a shrinkage in belly fat, and a more energized you.
TIP 3: Get outside, Walk barefoot.
There’s a reason birds are chirping, bunnies are jumping, and flowers are blooming. The reason is because the SUN has RISEN for us to stay out longer! We need to all be outside this time of year and optimize this beautiful, planet, earth we have. So why not grow our own food organically? Whether you have a big backyard or a small patio, you can still find ways to have a small garden. Not only will it save you some money but it will help get you outside and grounded.
Grounding or earthing is defined as placing one’s bare feet on the ground whether it be dirt, grass, sand or concrete. When you ground to the electron-enriched earth, an improved balance of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system occurs (Mercola). Staying grounded is very important for your health, it also helps move your blood flow in your body creating more balance in your life, supporting your ability to self heal and self correct. It provides abundant electrons from the earth that helps fights against inflammation, and helps restore our adrenals from a stressful day at work or play.
The sun also provides a good free source of vitamin D for you and your skin. If you’re working a 9-5 and can’t get out to enjoy the sun supplement that necessary D vitamin with our mVita-D3. If you feel too sluggish in the morning and not have the energy to get outside we suggest starting your day out with mBreakfast to help you get out and enjoy the outdoors.
TIP 4: Spring Clean Your Mind
De-clutter your mind. Stop the stress from overtaking your mind. Stress causes inflammation and can actually shrink your prefrontal cortex which causes weight gain and suppresses your brain power. So stop overthinking. Focus and relax on the quality of life you want to live. Meditation is a great way to help de-clutter the mind. The whole idea of de- cluttering any area of your life is for us to keep growing and in order for us to keep growing we need to make room to plant new seeds in our life.
If you don’t know where to start with meditation find some classes in your area that will help teach you the basics. If you’re here locally in Dallas, TX stop by our store to find out more information on classes we will be offering to help get those stuck emotions released.
