Renew and Rejuvenate to welcome Spring

Renew & Rejuvenate

Spring is here and many of us want to make some changes to reflect the time of renewal and rejuvenation. Spring is a great time to change your diet, detoxify the body and maybe lose weight in the process. Eating a diet high in fibre, high in organic fruits and vegetables, low in animal proteins and processed food will help your body to transition from Winter to Spring and Summer.

About 70% of our body is made-up of water. Drinking about 8 glasses of clean water a day will not only hydrate your body but it will also help with cleansing. And to strengthen the cleansing effect, add “Liquid Greens Chlorophyll” to your drinking water. This liquid supplement is available for sale at the retail section of our clinic and other health food stores.

Drinking enough water is key in detoxification, getting enough fibre and antioxidants from vegetables and fruits is also very important. Removing excess acids from your body will be useful in helping to get rid of toxins. Avoid excess animal proteins like processed meats and cheese and consume plenty of alkalizing foods (vegetables and fruits). Incorporate exercise to promote the movement of lymph in the lymphatic system responsible for removal of toxins from the tissues. You can promote detoxification by adding specialized products to your diet. Pascoe Canada offers “Whole Body Cleanse”. This gentle
product supports all aspects of detoxification: the lymphatic system to transport toxins, the liver to
detoxify them, and kidneys and intestinal tract to eliminate them.

This spring “The Whole Body Cleanse” is available at Myoflex Massage & Rejuvenation Clinic at
20% off the regular price. We carry a wide selection of natural body products to help you with body and
skin cleansing.

Based on Eastern philosophy, Spring corresponds to the “Wood” element which in turn is related to the liver and the gallbladder. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the liver is responsible for the smooth flow of energy (Qi) throughout the body and therefore it is the prime target for spring cleansing. Green is the colour of the liver and of spring. Thus, eating greens like lettuce, green beans, sprouts, spinach, and arugula, can improve liver functions. The liver can also be stimulated with sour drinks and foods such as putting a slice of lemon in your water or a touch of vinegar in salad dressing. The liver has an effect on tendons, muscles and nerves. Therefore, adding morning stretches to your daily routine will benefit them and will make you feel better. The liver also opens to the eyes and is connected to proper eye function.

Complementing your detox routine with an acupuncture session and/or massage will give you better results.
