As we spring around the corner towards vernal equinox, the trees and flowers will begin blooming (unless you live in Victoria where they have begun last month), and with that our spirits will be lifted and gardens will begin to be pondered for their nutritious veggies. In anticipation of the light and lively spring, we thought it is about time that we sprouted our newsletter. Finally. And so… here it is!
Spring Detoxing – Join us for a 3 week detox this spring!
Spring is a great time to do a detox. Poor diet, chronic stress, exposure to pollutants and free radical damage can all add to the wear and tear on our bodies. Toxins, whether internal (such as by products of metabolic process such as hormones, stress etc. ) or external toxins (such as alcohol, pesticides, oral contraceptives, medications) – these all need to be neutralized and excreted properly for optimal health. Our bodies naturally detoxify to maintain a baseline of health but spring is a great time to do a detox program to help rid those chemicals, which drag us down.
Detoxification involves dietary and lifestyle changes that reduce the intake of toxins while at the same time improving the body’s capacity to eliminate. A proper detox program works on bowels for elimination, liver, kidneys, lungs and skin. All healthy lifestyle choice and in detoxing, drinking adequate amount of clean water, exercising, rest, sunshine and lots of fresh springtime air are a must! Nutritionally a diet high in veggies, some fruits, some whole grains and organic protein sources can be eaten, while eliminating the common allergenic offenders – wheat, cow dairy and simple sugars. All black caffeine is also limited during a detox to help the liver restore proper function and cleanse the blood from external stimulants.
Dr. Jonathan Bablad and Dr. Vanessa DiCicco invite you to bring in the spring and join them in a 3 week Spring Detox starting March 26th, 2014. We plan to meet for 3 Wednesday evening meetings (April 30th, May 7th, and May 14th from 7:00 to 8:00 at our office) to discuss the principles of detoxification. You will be provided with the detox supplements and support! The cost of the Spring detox covers the detox materials. Please contact Brittany for more information or to sign up!
