Why A Spring Detox Is The Best Self Care Ever

As you may already know I'm a big fan of self-care. Taking the best care of yourself in all ways, mentally emotionally, physically, spiritually is the best gift you can give yourself.

Self-care means no more putting yourself as an afterthought ladies. Self-care requires a true deep commitment to yourself and your growth.

Spring is a beautiful season and time of year to bring forth new growth. It's a higher energy time of year, a time of renewal.

Every year in the spring I notice a desire to 'detox'. I start to clear out things in my life that are no longer serving me. One big way is through taking much better care of my physical body so I can feel lighter and freer. I tend to want to choose more fresh foods, in season veggies and drink more herbal teas.

It's a great time of year to re-calibrate.

To let go of all the things that are in the way of allowing you to burst forth fully with the energy of spring. This is why I love devoting some time to detox every spring and let go of anything toxic holding me back.

When you give yourself this gift of detox, amazing things happen but it does require you do the work. You plan, you prep and you commit. Take your health seriously, not for granted and give it extra loving attention.

It’s so easy to shift your focus away from you and your health. I get it, life is full and you have responsibilities. If you think of it, you probably schedule to take your car in a few times of year for a tune up. You may even do some deeper seasonal house clean up or yard clean up. Think about why you'd be willing do these things but perhaps not allow yourself do the same for your body. Your body is your true home and the only one you will ever have and no one else can take care of it for you.

If you aren’t feeling your best, mentally, physically and in your emotions/moods a time focused on detox will help you shift towards feeling vibrant. You can crowd out the habits that were not serving you with new habits. Provide your body with nourishing healing foods to fuel you properly and allow the inflammation from foods that aren’t optimal to dissipate. The same is true with some of the habits you can choose to create and focus on so your body can heal more fully. Do you really need to be on the go all the time helping everyone else, or could you take some more focused time for yourself?

Here’s why I love a spring detox…


The action of cleansing and purifying your body through a focused time of detox helps to release stagnation, making room for revitalized easily flowing energy.


When you eat a diet that has healing properties and lessens the burden on your body, you make room in your mind and body for other things. This makes room for your mind to be more clear and focused.


Also, as your body releases toxins, it also begins to release layers of emotions. Cleansing is all about getting to those deep rooted toxins and flushing them out of your system.

Some toxic feelings such as anxiety, anger and fear may surface, giving you a chance to deal with deep rooted pain. Emotions that are stored in the body can start to manifest into the physical body through aches and pains, creating a stagnant liver, depression, among other serious illnesses.


Alcohol, sugar, refined food and caffeine all contribute to adrenal fatigue. As you eliminate these stimulants from your diet, your precious adrenal glands get a much needed break and reboot.

The abundance of nutrients from fresh organic veggies and whole foods, along with meditation and gentle detox practices, has a nourishing and healing effect on your adrenal glands. Healthy adrenals help your body and mind cope and deal with everyday stress without getting overwhelmed.


By removing sugars, alcohol and other foods that are problematic for your body you will reduce inflammation. Inflammation and digestive issues, are two of the major cause of bloating, weight gain and many illnesses and disease. You can even reduce other pain in the body you tend to experience, like regular headaches or even period cramps. And of course, shed some unwanted weight in the process.

Here’s what some of my clients have said after going through a detox with me:

"One of the biggest struggles I had was overall bloating and feeling a heaviness in my body. I had allowed too many treats to sneak in and chose to do the fall detox to help me reset my health. It was my first detox.

I did lose weight but more than that I was amazed at how light and clear my body felt afterwards. I loved the recipes and want to do it again - I didn't even get to try them all.

Adding more veggies was just what my body seemed to want -it helped me to switch up the way I was eating which was too heavy and now I feel so much better. I also felt a calm I've never felt before since doing the detox, that was an unexpected benefit I really appreciate.

I highly encourage others to join! Don't overthink it -just enjoy the process, it's a learning process and it's not all just about food. You will gain valuable self-care practices as well as clarity, calmness, empowerment and so much more!" ~ Julie

"I feel so much better about myself and I feel more confident than before doing the program. I've lost 10 pounds overall through the time I spent on the detox program.I've gotten past the feeling of being stuck and overwhelmed and now have so much mental clarity. I have increased energy and no longer felt like I need to take a nap every day.

I don't have the cravings for sweets like I used to, and am feeling more in touch with the taste of real food. I also made some connections to my bodies response to alcohol which was eye opening and helpful.

I feel better equipped to include a lot of the habits I learned and to better maintain a healthier diet. Some of the recipes from the detox are now my favorite foods -which also surprised me. I never even liked sweet potatoes before but now I can't get enough of the sweet potato soup.
I'm also grateful that I could see myself shift into some of the self-care habits like detox baths. Prior to this, slowing down and relaxing was not something I was really very good at doing. But I found myself learning to get better at it and really see the benefit of taking the time just for myself.
