Spring is the season of renewal and growth, and it is also an ideal time to focus on cleansing and supporting the liver. The liver is a vital organ that plays a crucial role in detoxifying the body, regulating metabolism, and maintaining hormonal balance. By taking steps to support liver health during the spring, we can enhance our overall wellbeing and set the stage for a healthy year ahead.

Spring is the season of the liver in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurvedic medicine, which both view the liver as a crucial organ for overall health and vitality. According to TCM, the liver is responsible for regulating the flow of Qi (vital energy) throughout the body, and a healthy liver is essential for maintaining emotional balance, promoting digestion, and supporting the immune system.

During the winter months, our bodies may accumulate toxins due to decreased physical activity, heavier food consumption, and exposure to cold weather. By the time spring arrives, our bodies are ready to shed the accumulated toxins and rejuvenate themselves.

Spring is also a time when we naturally feel more motivated to get outside, move our bodies, and try new things. By incorporating liver-supporting practices into our daily routine during this season, we can enhance our energy levels, reduce stress, and improve our overall sense of wellbeing.

How to Cleanse and Support the Liver in Spring

There are many ways to support liver health during the spring, including:

  1. Eat a healthy, whole-foods based diet: Choose foods that are high in fiber, antioxidants, and other nutrients that support liver health, such as leafy greens, cruciferous vegetables, berries, and lean protein sources. Avoid processed and sugary foods, which can put a strain on the liver.
  1. Drink plenty of water: Staying hydrated is essential for flushing toxins out of the body and supporting the liver’s natural detoxification processes.
  1. Exercise regularly: Exercise is a natural stress-reliever and can help support the liver by improving circulation and lymphatic flow.
  1. Try herbal remedies: Certain herbs, such as milk thistle, dandelion root, and turmeric, are known for their liver-supporting properties and can be incorporated into your diet or taken as supplements.
  1. Practice stress-reduction techniques: Stress can have a negative impact on liver health, so it is important to prioritize stress-reduction techniques such as meditation, deep breathing, or yoga.

By incorporating these practices into your daily routine during the spring, you can support your liver’s natural detoxification processes and enhance your overall sense of wellbeing.

This is why we notice a greater intake of clients in the Spring for the 8 week eliminatory organ cleanse (where we guide you through the colon, kidney and liver cleanse process). Many appreciate and want to benefit from, working in line with the natural order of things. We are, in fact (Jade & Ellie), both liver cleansing at this time of year too, for this very reason.
