Looking Towards Spring: Detoxifying Herbs, and a Sweet Sale!
Springtime is around the corner, barely a week away! It’s the perfect season for cleansing your body of the residues of heavier, winter season diets, and other indulgences or medications. Traditional detox herbs can help move those built-up toxins out by enhancing the natural activities of the liver, kidneys, colon, lungs, skin, and lymphatic system.
Check out our Cleanse Me Tea, a potent detox formula of Nettles, Cleavers, Burdock, and Dandelion, plus Red Clover Flowers. People who experience springtime allergy symptoms may find relief with Em's excellent Aller-Geez Tea, featuring Nettles, Chickweed, Sage, Licorice Root, and Eyebright—a great blend for calming the hay fever symptoms that many suffer when tree and grass pollens fill the air. (Note: this year’s drought-quelling rains in parts of the western US are likely to fuel higher than normal levels of pollen and mold!)
Some of the other herbs worth considering for detox regimens include Milk Thistle Seed, Ginger, Ashwagandha, Alfalfa, Blessed Thistle, Gotu Kola, Sarsaparilla, Artichoke Leaf, Echinacea, Uva Ursi, Calendula Flower, Oat Top, Hibiscus, Celery Seed, Schizandra, Rosemary, Fennel Seed, Helichrysum Flower, Figwort, Ocotillo Bark, Cinnamon, and Rosehip. Each of these plants can aid the action of one or more of the organ systems that are essential for your internal cleansing process (see links above for more details).
Along with measures such as sensible eating, adequate hydration, good quality sleep, appropriate exercise, and minimizing or avoiding alcohol and other intoxicants, an herbal detox regimen can enhance your sense of well-being, mental clarity, and mood, reduce inflammation, and energize you to cope with life’s challenges more effectively.
As we’ve noted previously, using herbs in the form of well-steeped teas is optimal for extracting most of the healing compounds in plant medicines, and provides the extra benefit of increasing your water intake—an important part of the cleansing process!
