The turn of the seasons is a fantastic time for a reboot, for many reasons, but especially if you've been feeling less-than-ideal. At a time of amplified stress, overeating, fatigue and burnout, and heightened nervous systems, participating in a gentle cleanse -- particularly our Fall Ceremonial Tea Cleanse -- is a great way to nourish your body and your being on a cellular level. The teas included in our cleanse options are antioxidant-rich, support healthy digestive functioning, can help boost mood and aid cognitive functioning, help lower inflammation and so much more.
If you've been experiencing any of the symptoms below, it might be time for a cleanse. Here are 5 signs that a cleanse would be beneficial for you!
- Digestive Discomfort
If you feel like your metabolism is dragging, or you've been experiencing signs of digestive distress, giving your gut a breather with a gentle cleanse can be very beneficial! Anywhere from 5 to 15% of our energy is used solely for digesting our food, so if you've been overeating lately (or consuming things out of the ordinary), you may be experiencing stagnancy, trouble eliminating, general discomfort, bloating, etc. Lightening our intake, consuming mindfully, staying hydrated, and ensuring we're receiving optimal nutrients (such pre and probiotics) can help rebalance our gut flora and recalibrate our digestive health.
- Low Moods and Energy
Our gut health is directly correlated to our brain health and quality of mood, so feeling cranky, irritable, uninspired, lethargic or fatigued could be a sign that you need a reboot! The gut-brain connection is so powerful, in fact, they actually connect on what is called the "gut-brain axis", which is biochemical signaling from our digestive system to our nervous system. Ensuring we have a healthy balance of "good gut bacteria" and working to eliminate excess "bad gut bacteria" can help boost moods, clear brain fog, and leave us feeling more vibrant, healthy and happy.
- Skin Flare-ups and Outbreaks
It's normal to see a pimple crop up from time to time, but if you've been experiencing an overload of outbreaks (acne, rashes, etc.) then realigning your diet through a cleanse can be a key way to clear up your skin! Our skin is the largest organ of elimination, and when our skin backs up and shows signs of distress, it usually means things have been out of alignment for some time. But not to worry, realigning your gut health, amping up your hydration and consuming mindfully can support your skin to return to a state of radiance.
- Aches and Pains
Inflammation is a culprit we all experience in small daily doses, but chronic inflammation -- through poor diet, alcohol consumption, excess coffee intake, chemicals in our environments, etc. can lead to aches, pains, headaches and impaired bodily functioning. If you've been feeling increased lower back pain, muscle stiffness, soreness and a difficulty recovering from activity, you may need to lower your overall inflammation, adjust your intake and nourish yourself more deeply, which cleansing can support!
- Frequent Colds and Viruses
Chronic inflammation in our bodies can also lead to illness and disease, lowering our immune system and leaving us more susceptible to colds, flus and other viruses. Especially now, alkalizing our inner wellspring, through gentle cleansing and consumption can help lower inflammation, ward off free radicals and help bring us back into balance, keeping us strong, healthy and resilient against any "sickness" going around. Ensuring our immune system is functioning optimally is key for overall wellness, especially during the holiday season.
