Winter detoxing is a little different than a Spring detox. At this time of year your body is craving warmth which requires eating warmer foods and we are typically hungrier. However, when we eat more, we keep our bodies in a continual digesting mode which takes energy away from detoxing and other necessary functions and makes us more vulnerable to getting sick.

So how can we make the most of detoxing in the winter cooler months?

  1. Wear warmer clothing and wear socks as energy leaves through our extremities.
  2. Take hot showers or baths
  3. Have Infra-red sauna sessions
  4. Cozy up with a great book or herbal tea in front of the fire
  5. Trade in your cooler smoothies for warming broths and soups
  6. To further activate detoxification do hot/cold hydrotherapy. When you are in the shower do 1 minute hot to 30 seconds warm or cold for a few minutes. Have a hot tub? Get in and then out, in and out!!!
  7. Drink water at room temperature.
  8. Warm detox lemonade to start your day
  9. Include warming spices in your meals, cinnamon, cloves, ginger etc.
  10. Enjoy the Antioxidant-Potassium Broth and this 3 Day Winter Detox developed by Busy Mama Detox

Food and the chakras…..

You can strengthen your chakras by eating foods associated with it. All foods carry frequency-based messages and change your vibration. I have been including Chakra meditation in my classes for the last couple of years and am now starting to offer “by donation” sessions. Please email me for further information if you are interested in attending. You can also attend various classes such as Core Conditioning on Tuesday’s at 9am, Wednesday’s at 7:15pm, Saturday’s at 8:45am for meditation (and core exercise – body, mind and spirit).

You can read about how learning about the Chakras has helped me with my eating disorders and my continued journey of healing.
