I love autumn and I love to celebrate the season with a detox.
When September rolls around, I know a detox will put sparkle in my eyes, and boost my energy.
One reason I like an autumn detox is because I’m a reflexologist and I know that one of the things a reflexology session does best is encourage a mild detox.
So, I begin my autumn detox with three days of reflexology sessions right in a row.
My next step is to eliminate. After all, that’s what a detox is all about. My autumn detox is a little different from any other detox, though. I’m not looking to eliminate everything – just the foods and drinks that weigh me down and make me feel sluggish. That means I’m going to ditch the junk and processed foods.
Because of the foods I eliminate, this detox is different from all the other detoxes that I do. Junk food and carbs top the list.
This season’s detox focuses on eating fruits for one day. Use them to rebalance your system. Because fruits always make me feel so good and energetic, I’ll probably stretch the one day out to two or three.
Each year, when I schedule my detox, I always schedule a few days of elimination when I cut out the junk foods, carbs, processed foods and the caffeine. (If you smoke, this is a good time to offload the nicotine.)
It’s never more than a couple days before I notice that my body is energized.
While I’m getting rid of the toxins and replacing them with good nutrients, I feel lighter, cleaner, and more energetic.
That’s when I take time to walk, schedule a yoga session, or go for a swim. The idea is to participate in activities which relax and rejuvenate your body.
An autumn detox is not new in my life. I remember autumn detox events dating back to my childhood in the South.
As the days grew cooler, a neighborhood mother prepared her special concoction and gave everyone a giant spoon full. To this very day, I have no idea what was in it.
This I do know: It tasted terrible! And, our bodies smelled terrible for several days afterward. If I ever smell that aroma again, I’m going to ask whoever is walking around with it to talk to me. I want to know everything!
Another neighborhood mother put herbs in asperfidity bags which she personally prepared for us. We wore them around our necks like necklaces. The only thing I remember was garlic. After that, my memory grows hazy.
Well, now is the 21st century and I prefer my autumn detox. It’s practical and easy. There are no smelly asperfidity bags to wear through the winter.
The power you will achieve by getting junk foods out of your life and your body encourages good things for you.
Several days worth of reflexology sessions bring bliss!
Adding exercises like walking, tai chi, or yoga are ideal for autumn rejuvenation and relaxation.
Complicated changes are not always necessary to promote wholistic health improvement and a longer life.
I hope you’re planning to join me and take the autumn equinox detox challenge!
