Spring is a wonderful time of year. When winter is finally over and the days become longer and sunnier, we start feeling better. We become more energised and will most likely get the urge to do some traditional spring cleaning.
But who said spring cleaning should stop at one’s home?
Our bodies need cleansing too. They become overburdened during the cold season. After all, we tend to eat heavier foods when it’s cold; some of us overeat during the holidays, others take a lot of medication to treat the flu or to prevent it from happening, and so on. Moreover, for many of us, the cold season tends to be stressful and tiring, which affects our mental health significantly.
So it’s natural to usher in a new season by removing the toxins and waste from our body. A spring detox is a great way to do so.
But that’s not the only reason you should try it. If you are still having doubts about whether to start a spring detox or not, here are 5 important reasons to consider it.
If you weren’t eating too healthy during winter months (which many of us are guilty of), there’s a chance you struggle with some kind of digestive issues once spring arrives. This also happens when you’re eating things that your stomach doesn’t react well to—or when you’re not eating enough nutritious foods.
Detoxing is one of the quickest and easiest ways to improve your daily diet, even if just for a little while; it provides your body with a vitamin boost that promotes proper digestion and encourages homeostasis.
Eating unhealthy food on occasion is not a huge problem; the problems start when people get too used to eating junk food on a consistent basis, and thus struggle with implementing a healthier diet. This is especially hard when healthy food appears far less delicious than cheap fare.
Most detox programs (including Uzuma’s) are juice-based. Thankfully, juices are tasty and easy to stick to. And if you manage to stick to them for a series of days, it will become easier for you to say goodbye to junk food and fast food, and hello to healthier options. Your taste buds will receive a much-deserved break from salt, sugar, and various spices, reducing your cravings for them over time.
Many of us gain a couple of pounds during the cold season—and many of us want to shed them when spring arrives. While this isn’t the only reason to do a detox, it is certainly a nice bonus.
Toxins are often stored in fat cells of the body. That’s why some people gain extra weight in winter, then find it extremely hard to lose later on. Detoxing can remove toxins from your body quicker than would happen naturally, therefore jumpstarting the weight loss process.
If you’re feeling exhausted all the time, despite the fact that winter has already ended, you’re not alone. In fact, many people feel too fatigued at the beginning of spring because they weren’t eating properly, felt depressed, their bodies were too busy fighting a cold, etc.
A spring detox is all about consuming nutritious and hydrating products for a certain period of time. Basically, when you detox, you’re packing your body with vitamins and nutrients it’s been starving for. This gives you an amazing energy boost, improves your sleep, and boosts your immunity as well, helping you fight spring allergies more effectively.
And while detoxing is largely about physical health, this doesn’t mean it won’t improve your mood! Eating healthy helps us feel better emotionally as well. You may start thinking more clearly, feeling more energised and less stressed. Moreover, you’ll probably also feel more confident and proud of yourself for doing something so good for your health.
Of course, if you do decide to detox, you should do it wisely. If you are a beginner or have no experience in this at all, we strongly recommend you to stick to our Uzuma Detox program instead of trying to create your own one. We also advise you to stick to the detox juices, water, and tea (for example, our Meraki Detox tea—one of the newest products in our store and a perfect addition to an Uzuma Detox program), and avoid drinking anything else during the program.
Approach this carefully, follow all the advice, and you’ll definitely get the most out of your spring detox!
