Why We Should Cleanse for Fall

Fact: fall is the optimal time to cleanse. Just like the trees outside, we turn over new leaves during the autumn season. Our routines change, our priorities change, and our eating habits also change to support optimal health. Although our schedules get busy, it’s important to take some time to rest and rejuvenate our bodies during this time of natural transition.

Tree_in_autumn,_Gran_SassoWhy cleanse now? Great question! Cleansing in toxins and treats we’ve accumulated all summer long (rosé, ice cream, s’mores, anyone?!) and prepare ourselves for winter. Simply cleaning out the old and making space for the new. Cleansing will kickstart the digestive system, reboot the organs, and strengthen the immune system to ward off illness this winter. Cleansing with in-season foods makes up for lacking nutrients. For example, less sunlight means less vitamin D. Therefor, we’ve got to get our D through food instead of sunshine. When you hear people say ‘food is thy medicine,’ it’s because eating clean, nutritious foods can actually prevent sickness. No joke.

So, how should we cleanse? Recent nutrition research opts for whole food cleanses over fasting or juicing. Thats good news! We can avoid sipping our meals, depriving our bodies, and listening to our stomach growling while experiencing major FOMO on life. The best cleanses includes an abundance of real foods, seasonal recipes, and self-care.

It’s no coincidence that fall makes us crave pumpkin, cinnamon, and other warming comfort foods. It’s prime time for these eats, which means that they’re higher in nutrients and lower in price! Herbs and spices actually have the power to raise our body temperature from the inside out.
