Cleansing Over the Spring Equinox

by Clare Neill, , link

With the Spring Equinox falling this Friday we asked our Executive Nutritional Therapist, Midi Fairgrieve, why she feels this is such a powerful time of year to cleanse.

"Spring is THE time of purification, healing and rejuvenation. It is a time to cleanse ourselves of winter’s residue and open ourselves to exciting new possibilities.  It is the most harmonious time of the year for fasting and cleansing body and mind.  

It is a particularly important time for our health and wellbeing since all living things are influenced by nature’s rhythms and cycles, such as the pull of the moon or the change of the seasons. Many of these influences have been observed and integrated into human culture and healing philosophies for thousands of years due to their effect on our health.  

All of nature’s rhythms and cycles affect us to some degree but it’s our ability to respond to that effect that is so fundamental. If we can’t respond fully to the cycles around us then we can become ill. There are countless cycles which affect us from 2 hour cycles, as observed in Chinese medicine, to 26,000 year cycles of the Universe. All of these can influence our health and wellbeing.

In terms of detox, one of the most powerful times of year is right now! During the Spring Equinox (20th March) when we can harness the powerful equinox energies to boost our health. Every living thing on earth will respond to the energies of the equinox by releasing toxicity from the cells, including us. Why this is so important in relation to DETOX is because if you get this excess toxicity out of your body fully and effectively now, in the spring time, then you are far more likely to remain healthy for the rest of the year – making a spring detox the perfect time to cleanse. A short period of juice fasting helps to release stored toxins and paves the way for a healthy year ahead."
