Natural Vitality Seasonal Cleanse
The Spring Cleanse Class, April 7, 6-9 p.m.

The Season of Spring in Chinese 5 Element Medicine is the element of WOOD, ruling the liver and gallbladder systems. The Liver is typically the focus of most modern cleanses. WOOD is the force that makes the crocuses “push” up through the frozen ground in spring. “Spring Cleaning” is what the Liver wants to do in Spring so it is best for us to support this process and avoid a spontaneous or difficult detox effecting the body and spirit.

The main function of the liver in Chinese Medicine is to ensure the smooth flow of Qi. We live in a society where our diet, work patterns, and exposure to toxins literally hammers our livers. Healthy liver function is important to support the body to move blood throughout the channels, when at rest, it flows back to the liver and stores blood. If the liver becomes stuck or stagnates, as it often does, many issues can arise, especially the build up of toxins.

If your winter diet has been high in meat, oils, dairy, alcohol and warming spices then the liver can be in a state of excess. Excess contributes to heat and constriction in the liver. If you tend to skip meals or “eat on the run” this strains the digestive system and contributes to stress, which overburdens the liver.

The Natural Vitality Spring Cleanse,  http://natural-vitality.com/calendar-events/2015-02/ is all about supporting the liver to release old toxins to achieve healthy and efficient liver function. Anyone would benefit from doing a Spring Cleanse and especially those have liver issues or struggle with digestive disorders, PMS, Menopausal symptoms, sleep disorders, skin issues and tend to feel frustrated, angry or impatient.
