Spring Cleanse for Wellness!!

The feeling of Spring is like a blooming bud!! The natural warmness of sunny days, the chirping sounds of birds, and all of the new activities of Mother Nature!! The sprouting of new leaves. The flowers are blooming and with this renewed sense of change in nature, Spring is the perfect time to treat ourselves with the Ayurveda’s wellness gift of a reset. to cleanse, to restore the balance in this season of newness.

According to the ancient Ayurvedic theory, Spring is one of the most important seasons for cleansing! Spring is a great time to do a gentle Ayurvedic cleanse. It is an easy way to protect your well-being for the upcoming months and beyond.

These days, our bodies are inundated with anxiety and stressors.  Environmental toxins, unresolved emotions, processed foods, and psychological stress, just to name a few.  But these stresses on our body and mind begin to affect our well-being.

As the seasons change, it’s a perfect reminder for us to take notice of the toxic build-up in our minds and bodies, restoring the balance we need to thrive!

  • Supports the elimination of toxins from the body
  • Restores the energy and vitality

  • Supports healthy weight management
  • Supports the elimination of toxins from the body
  • Increases physical and mental strength
  • Helps reestablish one’s natural state of mind-body balance

So how do we transition through Spring and cleanse the way Mother Nature designed? 


The days are becoming longer and the weather gets warmer, it’s the perfect time to allow yourself a moment to pause and appreciate the present moment.

When our schedules are busy and we juggle multiple roles, we often forget to take a much-needed moment for ourselves. Slowing down allows us to be more productive.  It prevents burnout, allows us to have more energy, it maintains our focus, and channels our attention where it’s needed most. When our cup is full…that spills over into all areas of our life.

This cleansing invites you to give yourself a break.  Beginning with your mind, what thoughts, emotions, and stories can you let go of that you no longer want to carry? What intentions are you setting to invite in?  Check in with the intentions you set at the new year and remove any clutter that has gotten in the way. 

Simple ways to connect back to your true self.

  • Spend time with your family and friends
  • Enjoy healthy and fresh food through mindful eating
  • Laugh, smile, be happy, avoid getting angry.
  • Practice Yoga or do some type of exercise or brisk walking.
  • Surround yourself with positive energy and/or people you find uplifting and nourishing
  • Get a good night’s sleep
  • Get out in nature, listen to the birds or water waves
  • Find the beauty in the little things

These simple practices can allow us to feel rejuvenated and refreshed almost instantly!


While Winter may be all about getting cozy and filling up on comfort foods, we may enter into Spring feeling heavy and sluggish. So, it’s time to lighten things up and shed the many aspects of our ‘Winter coziness’, to allow new growth and abundance in the coming months. 

Simple tips to rebalance your body according to Ayurveda

  • Drink lukewarm lemon water when you wake up in the morning
  • Support your immunity with healing herbs such as ginger, and raw honey, to naturally boost your system and provide the perfect wellness to your body
  • Walk or do yoga early in the morning to allow the body to naturally drain
  • Breathing deeply and slowly to reset your nervous system  

As far as food goes, eating according to the seasons and filling our bodies with local non-refrigerated fruits and vegetables that grow during that season is essential to nourishing ourselves as we were designed. By simply following the laws of Mother Nature, you set your digestive system up for success, so it can most effectively absorb the abundance of nutrients it needs. 

Cleansing regularly, and removing impurities, allows our bodies and minds to function at their best. We digest food better, think clearer, and feel more radiant and alive!

Ayurveda recommends herbal detox teas and a soothing Khichari diet to balance or restore gut health. In the end, when we simply follow the flows of Mother Nature and live our lives according to the current season we can more easily stay on top of our health and wellness.
